The current Olympics to Tokyo has the lowest opening ceremony TV ratings ever. When I was a kid everybody watched the Olympics. Now with 200 plus channels and streaming venues they just don’t seem that important.
Add to that the politics involved now. From no spectators allowed, athletes protesting one thing or another (they’re Olympic athletes, what the hell do they have to protest about) and all the political correctness now.
Oh there have been some memorable games before. Like the 1980 Miracle on Ice.
Then there is the fiasco at Beijing, when they forgot to invite Mark Spitz when Michael Phelps tied his gold medal record.
Or when Kimberly Rhode, she became the first American individual athlete to win a medal in five consecutive Olympic Games in 2012. But that’ shooting who besides me cares.
