If you ask the coach for the Dutch speed skating team why the US failed to medal at the Winter Olympics in the sport, he’s got a very simple answer for you.
“You have a lot of attention on a foolish sport like American football and you waste a lot of talent, athletic talent, on a sport that is meant to kill each other, to injure each other. … You’re so narrow-minded, and then you want to compete against the world [in other sports] when you waste a lot of time, good talent on a sport that sucks,” he said.
It’s good to know I’m the narrow-minded one.
