Olympics: Boxing finals

Everywhere I went to tonight… all the Thais are completely riveted by their country’s last opportunity for gold medals: boxing.

It’s such a Norman Rockwell scene… gangs of Thais huddled behind the small televisions, completely oblivious to their own job, even sales opportunities.

8 of my 21 tv channels has the Olympic boxing on. That’s more channels providing Olympic coverage than the Opening Ceremony or any of the Games in the past 23 days combined.
