The only thing I'm sicker of than the Olympics...

...is the title of this blog entry from the blog of the Kansas City Star's crack TV critic, Aaron Barnhart. I think he is right on about the economics of the Olympics.

For some reason, critics have been piling on NBC's coverage this year. I actually think the production was better than usual. For that matter, so was the U.S.'s medal count. Just because a few American hyped athletes didn't garner medals, I have no idea why there has been such a sour reaction.
