WINNIPEG – After two weeks of competition, Pete Franklin is completely unaware if the Winter Olympic Games have just kicked off or finished days ago.
“I heard that the opening and/or closing ceremonies were spectacular” Mr Franklin raved before adding, “And how they lit, and or, passed on the torch was breathtaking.”
Mr. Franklin managed to ignore the non-stop promotion of the event throughout multiple forms of media. “I’ve been catching up on Better Call Saul but I’m seventy percent sure that if it has started, I haven’t missed the dog sled race.”
Last Friday Franklin thought he might have seen clips of the biathlon on a TV at a local bar, but inaccurately concluded that it was the opening of True Lies.
Franklin has a long history of totally overlooking large-scale events such as repeatedly missing the Super Bowl, which he thought took place on a Saturday and sleeping through both the 92 and 93 World Series finals.
“At least there’s a silver lining. If I did miss it, I know that the Womens’ and Mens’ hockey team will be bringing back gold.”
