There is nothing better than sitting back, grabbing a cold one and watching a weekend crammed with playoff football, March Madness, or The Masters.
But the Winter Olympics?
Why in the world would you want to watch a bunch of Canadians push a rock down the ice while other people frantically sweep the ice with brooms?
I get the piont, but I don't agree with the notion.
The Winter Olympics give us a chance to watch some of the world's greatest athletes compete in events we have never tried to experience. They defy the laws of physics and they display their national pride for the entire world to see.
Maybe the Americans aren't going to reel off a bunch of gold medals, but who cares. There are plenty of reasons why you should watch the 21st edition of the Winter Olympics.
And if you need a list, well then here ya go.
