The Big Night

This is probably the biggest day of this Olympics so far; possibly of all. There’s the start of the ladies’ figure skating competition- ‘the marquee event of the games’, according to about thirty commentators, replete with possibilities for underdeveloped teenaged girls to fall on their butts. Then there’s the men’s 1500 speed skating race, ridiculously overhyped, and almost as ridiculously loaded with talent. Not to mention women’s bobsled, featuring the stars of some of the best drama of the last games.

I’m watching American Idol.
