Five Things I Won't Miss About The Olympics

1. The "I Believe" theme song. I thought it was alright the first time I heard it. After hearing it a gazillion more times, my opinion changed.

2. The phrase "Own the Podium." Lock it up and throw away the key.

3. Commercials for Bell. They were very annoying. At least the RBC guy had some style.

4. Commercials for CTV's Olympic store. No, I don't want to buy a five-disc boxset, I don't want to buy an Olympic bib and I don't want to buy a customized stick. Stop asking!

5. Commercials for Ontario Tourism. The song and its arrangement is too predictable. I know there's no place like this. I live here! I'm in Ontario, y'all!

Man, I loved both the tourism Ontario and the "You gotta be here" BC ads. Although in the latter, I'm pretty sure they were just standing in front of a blue screen.

Agreed on the other points. Though "J'imagine" gets points because it's sang by hottie Annie Villeneuve
