The Olympics are going on right now, and it's hard to tell whether the coverage we're watching is distorted toward the Americans.
Mark asked me this morning though who came in third for the women's team gymnastics competition. I had to admit that I didn't know; the focus last night was on the Americans versus China.
For those living in countries other than the US, what's the coverage like on television? Are there interviews and in-depth histories of athletes from countries other than your own?
Mark and I have been especially mesmerized by the swimming competitions, with the swimmers' distorted bodies and the underwater cameras.
'Weird looking!' I'd say, regarding the hulking shoulders and insanely small waists. Often too, the
'No ears. That's why they look strange.'
I suppose. With the ears pinned back, a tight cap, goggles and a unitard, who could look normal?
