Olympics ... Yawn

Never in my life have I felt so underwhelmed about the Olympics, and I can't put my finger on why that is. Is it the loss of USA vs USSR? The influx of our professional athletes, as opposed to the days of old when it was our amateurs against the Soviet and East German so-called amateurs? Is it the drug scandals? Is it the fear of possible terror? Is it the move to have the Winter games offset so we now have an Olympiad every other year? I just don't know. Maybe I'll get into whatever remains of the Olympic spirit after the games start.
