    The Olympics

     Posted in In the Summertime at 19:38 on Thursday, July 26th, 2012 by Mr. Rant

    In less than twenty-four hours the London 2012 Olympics begin, I’m not looking forward to it, it’s not that I don’t like sport, I enjoy some sport, I even like some of the Olympic sports, so that’s not the problem. What I don’t agree with is how much has been made of the whole event. It’s been touted for seven years, and we’ve had to out up with it.

    We’ve had to listen day in and out about how it’s been planned, how hard people have worked to out it together and how much it means to people, I don’t begrudge people enjoying the Olympics but they would benefit from realising that not everyone enjoys watching people run, jump, skip and hop they’re way around a track.

    I’m sick of hearing about it now. I can’t wait for it to be over so we can all get back to normal and remember that we have lives that haves to be lived. Already on the opening day, we had the mess that was the flags of North Korea, I’m asking myself what else can we do to ruin this event, something that should be a big thing for those that enjoy that kind of thing has already been overshadowed by something so silly that the media felt it was the biggest story of the year.

    I’m hoping that the next two weeks fly by, and then it will be over and we won’t have to hear about it anymore.
