I don't get it. I just don't

I might be missing something important here but I am a little confused. In the mornings while I wait for all my munchkins to arrive, I watch one of those morning news/talk shows. They are building up the hype for the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. Great. They have been profiling some of the athletes. I am starting to wonder though. All the profiles I have seen on the "Canadian" athletes are all the same. Not one of them were born in this country. Everyone of them has moved to this country in order to "represent" the country. I am a little confused. Do we not have enough talented home grown athletes here? Why are Canadian born athletes not being used? I must be missing some important part of the equation. For example the last profile I saw had the athlete being sworn in as a Canadian citizen. So this person has already been selected to represent us in the Olympics and yet they were not even a citizen yet? I just don't get it.

My viewing secret

Yes, I admit it. I was one of the millions of people who tuned in to Jon and Kate Plus 8 last week. I have watched it on occasion. For the most part, I can't stand it. Kate comes off as a shrew and Jon, well let's just say he has a lot in common with a Mollusk. However, being a parent of mulitiples myself, sometimes I do find it interesting. Last week's episode was pretty much what I expected. She didn't tell him he was breathing too loud or any other nitpicking she usually does. Everything was goind along just fine until Kate was critizing the media for following her and her family around. I beleive she said something about following her to the store is not excitng and look over there, there is a family shopping, follow them. ( I am paraphrasing because I can't remember her exact words). I was a little stunned. She was annoyed because cameras follow her and her family?!?! Hello? Last time I checked, she was the one who originally floated the idea for a television show. The story I heard was she actively searched for some sort of agreement for a tv show about her family. Did she not realize that means cameras? I realize that it can be hard to be chased by the media but she invited it into her life. Does she not realize that without the cameras or more importantly, without the public interest in her life, she has no show? No show, no money? From what I have read about her, she is all about the money. It just seemed to me that she was biting the hand that feeds her. Maybe it is time they all stepped back and re evaluated. If cameras following her upset her, maybe it is time for her to stop allowing cameras into her home. Cancel the show. That is just the way I see it.
