Most of what he said is idiotic, but he's right about some of the sports that really aren't sports...
I would agree that the Olympic Winter Games jumped the shark with the inclusion of all the X-Games crap.
Regardless, he chose a moronic way of making his point. I wish people like Gumbel could say their points and be done with it. He doesn't like the Winter Games. Simple as that. Big deal. One either likes the Olympics, and doesn't care what he has to say about them, or dislikes the Olympics, in which case I don't see the point of all the ranting and railing, since it's easir to just not watch them.
He tries to get some wit out of that or make a statement, and he makes an idiot at best out of himself.
