I’ve been watching a little too much Olympics, I think. The other night I was watching Men’s Walking on Telemundo, in Spanish. There’s something very wrong with that.
The other thing I don’t like about gymnastics is, aside from super obvious errors, it’s nearly impossible for laymen to tell how well someone did. Not just laymen. The NBC commentator frequently defers to the experts after a routine and asks “How did (s)he do?” That’s absurd. Only experts can even have a clue how well they did. That’s just not interesting to me, watching a “sport” where the result is a complete mystery.
