2012: A Special Year?

When I was young, years divisible by 4 were the best. They brought a trio of terrific treats:

  1. Olympics, both summer and winter.
  2. Presidential elections.
  3. A birthday.

Now, not so terrific:

  1. The Winter Olympics shifted by two years. The Summer Olympics no longer feel special. I’ll watch, sure, but without the same excitement. I mean, if I really cared about swimming, and I don’t, I’d watch it more often. Or archery. I do care about rowing. Good luck finding coverage. And I care about track and field. But there’s the usual problem of having the coverage dragged out on tape delay. Then again, it should be a lot easier this time to watch more events live, online if not on air. I’ll give it a try.
  2. Presidential elections. Can anything be more depressing? Enough said.
  3. A birthday. I don’t get too many of these. They’re precious, and still a treat. I’ll enjoy this one. And I’ll be happy for the next four years to take their time. No hurry. I can wait for the next one.
