People who are crazy about The Olympics look away now. I guess any Olympic Games are a bit ho hum for Sydneysiders as we had "The Best Ever Olympics!!!" in Sydney 2000 *ahem cough cough*. I think I totally burnt out on the whole thing that year and have never fully recovered. So, if, like me you have Olympic fatigue, I have five strategies you can adopt to minimise exposure and possibly even avoid it altogether. Please see under diagram for a further explanation.
2. If you can't make it to India, avert your gaze. A bit tricky I know, but worth a try. It adds to the overall party pooper effect if you frown and mumble under your breath a bit as well.
3. Develop selective hearing difficulties.
4. Stage your own alternative Olympics. That way you'll be way too busy with your own event to catch the real thing, and you may even distract some of the world media away from the main event! Highly unlikely I know but worth a try surely.
5. Commune with nature! Go camping for the full two weeks and don't forget to leave your iPhone at home.
Having said that, I would really like to see Usain Bolt run the 100 metres - can anyone tell when that's on? :0)
