It surprised me when my wife, few days ago, said she was happy about the impending fiasco, even hoping for it. She knows virtually no name in the pro league and never watches it on TV.

And, unlike beach volleyball and water polo, she hasn’t a problem with it being an Olympic sport. This is only team or athlete she was rooting to lose. Why does she even care?

Maybe it’s something about the athletes, and maybe not just in this sport.
