I am actually unable to watch many athlete interviews. I change channels or
switch off until they're finished. I can't stand the predictable questions,
or the way that athletes are interviewed within 5 seconds of finishing a
race (still struggling for breath). "So, you must be happy with that swim?"
Duh! Zzzz.

I have found that NBL (Australian basketball) players are generally quite
good. Likewise with even football players(!)

Seriously, Freeman is almost an exception. It's not just that she's dense,
but that she seems to have the speaking characteristics of a child. I would
not be surprised if she actually had the mental age of a 12 year old.
