I think the Olympics have jumped the shark

Between a suspicious history of corruption within the IOC, the inclusion of professional athletes in competition, its rampant commercialism, the tendency within the United States to value nationalism over internationalism, not to mention the use of the games by political powers for propaganda purposes and to cover human rights abuses — this year, but also 1968 and 1936, perhaps others — well, I just can’t get excited about the Olympic Games.

Can’t get excited about any of it. I doubt I’ll watch a minute. What do you think?
