It’s crunch time, crusaders. We’re down to the final days of the Olympics and, as if that wasn’t enough, the final countdown to the Oscars is upon us.
Starting tomorrow, the drama of the rink and the slopes is swapped for the front lines of WWII (twice)…the Nixon-era newsroom…1960s Baltimore…the Italian countryside in the 80s…1950s post-war London…the suburbs…Sacramento…and southern Missouri…Don’t think of it so much as a goodbye to the Olympics, so much as a hello to the Oscars. It just means you have some best picture nominee reviews to look forward to.
Still, it is just about that time to start thinking about life after the Olympics. I know it’s been quite a journey, and it’s going to hard to say goodbye to your two-week old curling fandom, along with every other great moment from these Games, not to mention the herculean efforts of figure skaters from around the world to revive “Moulin Rouge” (I think it worked).
There are still a few more days of team spirit to get through. And remember, it’s only two years (and a few months) until the next games. Tokyo 2020, here we come!
