[Comments] (6) Leonard's Unpopular Opinions: You know what's really boring? The Olympics. They combine the paint-drying excitement of athletic competition with the Long Tail of sports that aren't popular enough to have a big between-Olympics fanbase. The most interesting thing about them is the corruption and politics.

When I was five my father took me to the 1984 Games in Los Angeles, probably one of the track and field events. I remember with pleasure the pageantry and the big open spaces and the crowds. The games themselves were boring. (A lot like the Dodgers games he took me to, actually.) Basically, give me a good Worlds Fair over the Olympics any day.
