Shut Up! No, seriously, shut up! You're article did nothing but frustrate me. And do not, DO NOT call the Olympics the Look-at-me games. The athletes don't want the celebrity, they just want to compete, to be part of something that is bigger than themselves. Sure, all of them want to win, but most of them aren't out there to trot out for your dog and pony show. And honestly, you, the media, created the dog and pony show that the athletes just have to put up with in the first place. If "their antics" annoy you that much, don't watch, and don't report about it in a holier than thou manner, because that's not what the athletes want.

Sorry, I just find that sort of finger-pointing journalism infuriating. The only thing I even halfway liked about this article was when he called Michelle Kwan the Susan Lucci of Figure-skating. Hee! In happier news...
