I know how they feel, those Olympic athletes.
So much pressure, such high expectations.
Their public, their country, their parents,
their coaches... oh, the coaches...
They know them best of all, do those coaches.
They know their potential.
They've seen them perform.
They expect their best
every single time.
I don't care how you feel.
I don't care how you hurt.
Get out there and ski.
Get out there and skate.
Write for me, my pet.
They may be pilloried by the press.
But athletes don't have to worry about
a spanking from the coach if they don't
live up to expectations.
At least not as far as we know...
