The Olympics start tomorrow

February 11, 2010

I haven’t been a big fan of the Olympics or maybe I should say I haven’t been a big fan of the IOC since the Mexican Games in 1968. (the Plaza de las Tres Culturas was the scene of the Tlatelolco massacre). Why any government or organization puts itself into that type of circumstance is puzzling. Then the IOC’s ban on blogging. The legalism of the IOC has certainly expanded and the only purpose that seems to be apparent is the need to protect the IOC and the corporate sponsor. Lost in all of this is the athletes. We have seen so many articles about everything but the athletes. It is now refreshing to be able to see something different and after tomorrow all of this corporate noise will become secondary.

For those that want the Olympics in their hometown good luck. The end result will be great and most are excited. It took 7 years to get here.

    Hey Gene. I haven’t been all that much for the olympics, and I went from being against them to being resigned. But now, with all the excitement in the air, I’m getting really psyched about them. A couple of weeks back when I found out the torch was coming to our nearest street corner, I got even more excited.

    I need to go take a bunch of photos and post them. It’s all pretty cool.
