A couple claims that stuck out to me in this Badger Herald opinion column:
“Without a doubt, most of the events in the winter games are highly anticipated and have a strong fan following.”
Not really. The Olympics is really just an odd event that, because of nationalism, gets people excited about sports they otherwise wouldn’t care about (and that increasingly includes hockey).
“However, there are the games that are, well, a little less well known. Did you know that an official Olympic sport combines cross country skiing and rifle shooting?”
Yes. Doesn’t everybody?
