Two years later and not much has changed

Two years after the debacle of the Athens Games we're on the first day of competition of the 20th Winter Games. It seems, however, many of the old disappointments persist. Athletes cannot blog their experiences from the games and the Olympic website is devoid of any web feed. No RSS. No Atom. Nada.

At least the inane commentators of NBC aren't quite as annoying during the opening ceremonies as their counterparts were in Athens a couple of years ago. Who knows, by the end of the games they might even learn how to pronounce Torino.
