Things I love about the 2018 Winter Olympics

February 22, 2018

South Korea totally has its ish pulled together. No stories of hotel rooms falling apart or bacteria-laden water. The only wrinkles have been the weather which is … cold and wintry!

Norwegian curling pants. If you’re on the world stage and the cameras are focused primary from the waist down, may as well shine. The pants have their own Facebook page

I’m seeing this everywhere without attribution. If the picture is yours and you want me to take it down, email me. 🙂

Tara and Johnny. Just as smart as Dick Button and Scott Hamilton, but with a fun and modern twist.

NO BOB COSTAS OR MATT LAUER! Mike Tirico is a delight. He’s knowledgeable but doesn’t bludgeon you with it, and actually looks like he’s enjoying the job.

Maia and Alex Shibutani – I love their sibling relationship. They remind me of what my brother and I could have been had we been athletic and/or ambitious.

Comcast/Universal/NBC/LexCorp – With Comcast we are getting all of the Olympics we could ever want. We get the primetime highlights on NBC, but can dive deeper to watch events live and without a lot of commentary. Perfect for WM’s curling obsession.

    I stopped watching because I ended up watching the same events every night and that’s not cool.

    But yes, those curling pants are amazing. They would make Guppy Troup proud.
