It´s Over - Finally!

The moon doesn´t care a bit about defacing the Olympic Rings.
It was rough for awhile and the wait seemed endless, but now it is finally over. We are free, free at last from the Olympic Games - well, for this time at least.

My sister Millimina asked me recently why I didn't watch the Olympic Games more. "There are a lot of hot and wonderful men competing, I am sure you would find it thrilling and worthwhile if you only gave it a chance." or something to that effect.

I had no good answer at the time, nor do I have one now, but I think it disturbs me to see these wonderful men and women crippling themselves with years of hard training to be used/abused by the International Olympic Committee in this hypocritical way.

The IOC have sold out the games and what ideals they may once have had to big business. Mind you, I have nothing against big business as long as they admit to being just that, but the IOC pretend to be something more and that sickens me. Coca-Cola, Acer, Atos, Dow, General Electric, McDonald´s, Omega. Panasonic, Proctor & Gamble, Samsung and Visa (to name only the ten largest sponsors) own and control the games. The IOC shamefully supplies the veneer of the rings and the other symbols the flag, the fire  and the rest of the hoax of high hopes, dreams, idealism, peace-loving and brotherhood of man.

When they start calling them "The Coca-Cola Olympic Games" I might consider watching it with some enthusiasm.
