Watching the Olympics

I don't really like watching sports; It seems very boring to me. There's something about the Olympics, though, that makes me want to watch and leaves me wanting more.

One of the reasons I like the Olympics is certainly the variety of sports. It's not limited to basketball, football, soccer and the handful of other normally-televised events, it's full of events I don't often see. The variety of skating, skiing, sledding and other events is fantastic.

The other reason I really like watching the Olympics: the people competing are the best in the world. They all can do things I can barely imagine (like standing on a snowboard), and they do it because they love it (not because they're being paid to).

I often think it'd be a lot of fun to go to an Olympics one year and be one of those spectators in the stands. Maybe that will be a future vacation.
