You know what’s been cool for me to watch on the Winter Olympics this year? (And the Summer games last year, come to think of it?)
The watch parties. All the families and friends of the athletes competing, not allowed to cheer them on in person due to COVID, gather together in parties small and large around the world, to witness all the events – just like the rest of us – on their television screens.
Now, I’m sure these parties have been going on for years, because not everyone gets to go to the venues, but now we get to watch the watchers! Whether jubilantly cheering the victories, agonizing over the defeats, or audibly gasping at the unimaginable surprises (ahem, Mikaela Shiffrin), we see their reactions, and we feel them, like we’re sitting alongside them.
And I don’t know about you, but that enriches the whole experience for me. I think we should be in on every Olympics watch party from now on.
The Chevy commercials featuring Walter the cat. If you haven’t seen them, you owe it to yourself to do so. I am a 100% Walter fan.
I will be eternally grateful to the person who invents a television that automatically deletes political ads.
As it is, I have to quickly reach for the remote every time these idiots come on my TV and insult my intelligence with their astonishing, jaw dropping bull$#!t. The only thing even more jaw dropping is that someone out there actually believes it.
Personally, I think they should all be banned. Permanently. We would all be so much better off.
Nope. No such thing.
