Basically +1 me for Harlequin's reasons, but also it's... athletics. It's boring. And I've always hated the way people lose their **** over sport as though it's the most impressive thing in the world. I'd much rather talk about Kristen Stewart and Kim Kardashian than dull athletes. Though on that note, I don't think we've ever discussed Kristen Stewart, Kim Kardashian or anybody like them in here.

So, 'entertaining' is definitely a matter of opinion and as for educational... well, I haven't watched The Olympics this time around at all, but I can honestly say I've never learned a thing from an Olympic broadcast in my life. It's just... it's watching exercise. People fighting each other to be better at exercise.
