Quote of the Day

Posted by Brian on February 18, 2006

I’m not a big fan of the Olympic Games. The only event I have the slightest interest in is Ice Hockey, in which I cheer for the Americans and, should Team America be knocked out, Canada. Still, I know enough about the media coverage of the games to find great humor in this King Kaufman quote:

“Coming up,” came the announcement just before a commercial break, “we’ll take a closer look at an athlete who truly embodies the Olympic spirit.”

Just once, I’d like to get a closer look at an athlete who’s anathema to the Olympic spirit. “Up next, a profile of a guy who’s all about the Benjamins, hates foreigners and thinks the Olympics are a big joke. But he’s really fast.”

And speaking of the Winter Olympics, the usual complaints of Korean TV’s coverage of the games are beginning to crop up.
