Fool Me Once, Shame on You; Fool Me Twice, Shame on Me

To explain why I will not watch another evening of the Olympics. It was a continual parade of commercials with the odd moment or two of actual sport. Example -

Image of a skier, poised at the top of a mountain, ready to come out of the gates
Cut to - commercials
Back to skier, now halfway down the slope, bouncing off of the moguls
Cut to - commercials
Back to skier crossing the finish line...

All of the hype - "promoting peace among countries" "the joy and beauty of sports" -- it's all just words. And 95 per cent of them are commercials.
