There's Olympics going on?

Looking forward to some good British-themed TV Monday night - two hours of Gordon Ramsey torturing cooks. Even if it's a repeat.
NBC has hours of British-themed coverage - the Summer Olympics. Something that struggles with the technological advances in media coverage.
If you want to know who won, it's over long before prime time. That worked 40 years ago in Munich or Montreal, but it's hard to sustain suspense when you have to avoid all media for hours.
As a former sportswriter, I like sports. Olympic coverage isn't really sports. It's a two-week soap opera.
Wake me when football season starts.
