Dear Winter Olympics,
Hi. It's nice to meet you. I have been watching you every four years since I comng into this world. Every 4 years, I admit that I get very excited about your arrival. I become pumped to watch our nation compete in sports that I would never in my right mind participate in. I figure, "Those who can't do, watch. On TV." And I have enjoyed the few glimpses of sport I have had the opportunity to watch this season. The events are thrilling, wrought with the anxiety of, "Will they fall? What if someone gets hurt? Will USA come out with a medal?"
Now here is my problem.
While I enjoy your (painstakingly constant) presence on NBC, I need you to know that I REALLY miss my regular nightly television line up.
Like, a lot.
I'm not sure if there is a network conspiracy happening, but I've noticed that not only are you overriding my NBC shows, but all of the shows I watch on CBS and ABC are on reruns.
I blame this solely on you.
I miss Jim and Pam, Liz Lemon and Jillian Michaels. And, I'm wondering where "The Good Wife" is hiding. She's not even on NBC.
So, I will continue to cheer for America to win the Gold. But know that I will also be counting down every second until I can reinsert myself into the fictional realities of people and places that do not really exist.
It's what I live for.
