Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: It's Over

Tonight at 7pm EST you can view the tape-delayed closing ceremonies of the Olympics. Despite the controversy, utterly moronic statements made by some members of the US Press, and Olympic-sized whiners, they were very entertaining. Again, I love watching the actual athletes who are NOT professionals -- they really do work hard and put it all on the line.

The US finished in second in the medal count, with 25, 9 of them gold. Germany owned the games with 11 gold medals and 29 total. I didn't watch all of NBC's coverage, but I sure racked up the hours.

And since the US has NEVER won a medal, EVER in the biathlon, I think I need to start training for the 2010 games. Heck, who wouldn't like skiing and shooting? And so what if I'm just using training as an excuse to ski and shoot?
