Look I Can Pole Jump!

august 9, 2008

I thought I was the only one, until I read JR's posting about the Olympics. I too don't have the Olympic spirit.  I could care less about the games and everything associated with them.  And I really am not looking forward to the next two weeks of wall-to-wall Olympic coverage in all media. So, while I haven't spent my entire life training for and cannot do the following: I have spent my life learning computer doodads which I employ for work and which, hopefully, will continue to be a source of income for the rest of my life.  I'm not sure that knowing how to run really fast with a pole, sticking a pole in a hole and propelling myself over another pole would do the same. Yes, these people are athletic.  But, really, all your life for one shot at a round gold platter thingie?  Not to minimize things, but I don't see why.  Sorry.  (And yes, I don't understand professional sports either, but that's a whole 'nother posting).
