The Games Begin
For the last fortnight I’ve been firing few light-hearted broadsides at the Winter Olympics, poking it playfully in the ribs, getting its head into my armpit and giving it a well-meaning noogie. I suggested that the Games could only sustain interest with the kind of controversy that would continue off the rink or apres the ski.
Well it got some. And someone died. So I’m going to lay off now.
In the spirit of reconciliation I decided to tune into’s the mens downhill competition tonight. But it’s been cancelled due to lack of snow. I’m saying nothing.
