Just a Teensy Weensy Request

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 5:52 AM

Okay, so I have a request. During the summer months, every four years, we have the Summer Olympic Games. During the summer, I have my normal load of business to take care of, but no school work, so I have more time to watch… only, there aren't that many things I enjoy watching during the Summer Olympics.

Similarly, during the winter months, every four years, we have the Winter Olympic Games. During the winter, I have my normal load of business to take care of, plus deadlines on papers, reading assignments, etc. I have very little time to watch… only, there are many things I enjoy watching during the Winter Olympics.

Would it be that much to ask the IOC to switch to featuring the Winter Games during the Summer and the Summer Games during the winter in the future?

As an aside: wouldn't you rather see all that snow when you're hot in the summer than in the middle of winter when you're cold anyway? :D

No problem, just shift all the activity to the Southern Hemisphere. Ski Tierra del Fuego!

Um yeah Tim we'll get right on it. ;-) Personally, the Olympics are no longer the "thing" that everyone looks forward too. Back in the day it was our best struggling college kids against the evil USSR and how their athlete's weren't paid but supported by the govt. Now everyone has some form of "suppport" that skirts the rules. Plus everyone is aware of the overwhelming politics that now control the games. Just look at my sport. Triathlons w/drafting. Pathetic. Plus if you want "skin", Ice Dancing is the way to go. :roll:

Well, it still is interesting, though, I think. Personally, I like figure skating (ice dancing is OK but nothing special -- although our team this year did do really well), but I like most of the speed skating, skiing, etc., at least somewhat. :)
