Nick E BS: Avoiding The Olympics (153* d) RE: BS: Avoiding The Olympics 06 Apr 08

First I will comment on the "Professionals" being part of the games. It was just a way to level the playing field so to speak, as there were any number of "Army Personnel" from countries that did very little soldiering, and a lot of Hockey, volleyball, whatever. The fact is they were professional athletes. I am all for seeing the best compete.

And as for most of the rest of the comments, what a bunch of joyless curmudgeons! Don't watch people trying to be the best at something, trying to represent their country, stay in your funk, getting gray and growing crustier at each and every ominous tick of the clock while you add up the imaginary cost of people having fun.
