Maybe its CTV's fault.

Im so fed up with olympics this and olympics that. Seriously it hasn't even started yet and im annoyed lol. It hasnt even started and i wish it was over. Too bad all the media and energy wasnt used for something more pertinent and long lasting like Battered women, Autism and such and such. Its kinda pathetic. Anyone else? (probly not lol, I know one person that will jump on this like corn to poop lol)

Like it or not (and that's each persons opinion) you have to understand the added media coverage, why?, because it's on Canadian soil this time around.

I'm not a huge fan of Olympics (especially summer games), but you have to show you Canadian Pride. Just bare with the media hoopla, I'm sure once the games start it will be different.

Maybe it is CTV's fault because I haven't seen too much coverage yet and I don't watch much on CTV explicitly, though I do watch some of the cable channels they own. Some yeah, but I wouldn't say its been overexposed. But at the same time I would much rather see their attention on something like the Olympics than on something to scare us (H1N1) or pointless celebrity gossip.

I really have no canadian pride lol. canada identity is a very stoic and falsley forced identity IMO. The whole hockey, beer and eh thing is pretty lame. Take away that and what is there? I dunno I was born here and it does nothing for me and I am never proud to tell anyone where im from. Im actually embarrased at times.

Yea I donno where that comes from. Too bad for you. I'm not all super patriatic like some. But still proud to be Canadian. I'd rather be here more than any place all-in-all. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I'm not saying that you're doing this, but I hate it when others constantly complain about something like say... the weather. Those of us who put our cars away like to complain about it - but it's only temporary - and only here. And through regular conversation we all voice our opinion about certain things (like the Olympics - I tend to agree with the OP). But again it's only temporary. I know/work with people that make a negative comment about the winter weather every single time I see them. EVERY time! They never have anything nice to say like, good day for tobogganing, or the trees look pretty covered in snow. I feel like saying, if you hate it so much, move to Florida. We'd be happier with you gone. /end rant

Oh and to add to the OP, at least the Olympics aren't here in the GTA. Sorry guys on the west coast. I feel bad for you b/c once the hype is over, and years after the novelty of the extra venues for public use wears off, all you'll be left with is the debt the city of Vancouver and BC will be paying off.
