  • Athens to be ready for Games?

    Sports Illustrated said that there are 60,000 stray dogs running around Athens! OMG! And that's the least of their problems. It sounds like Athens might "outdo" Atlanta in screwing up the Games.

    Coincidentally, I heard on the radio this morning that the mayor of Phnom-Penh was urging his sophisticated city brethren to emulate their country-bumpkin relatives and start eating dog, because the Cambodian capital is being overrun with strays.

      So, stick to vegetarian dishes in Athens prior to and during the games?

          We can only pray it's as 'screwed up' as Atlanta. The best track meet I've been to, and I've been to 100's, big and little. Much better than LA '84.

              I mean the overall situation -- not just track. Yes, Atlanta track was great.

              I'll double check on if it was dogs or cats. Pretty sure it said dogs, though.

                Article above from a Google search mentions thousands of stray dogs in Athens. A NY Times article popped up, too. It appears that in addition to the thousands of cats you mentioned, Athens has thousands of dogs, too.

                  I think they're referring to some of the local women.

                    but I had heard that that there would be mandatory armpit shaving (or at least braiding) enforced.
