  • Olympic Hosts Portrayed As Gloomy (Generally)

    from today's San Francisco Chronicle

    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.c ... ST0338.DTL

    Good laff line at end

    <<A joke circulating in Greece starts with the premier, Simitis, visiting Beijing to view rapidly advancing works for the 2008 Olympics.

    "I'm impressed," Simitis says.

    "Yes," replies his Chinese host. "We'll have everything ready by 2006."

    "So will we," says Simitis. >>

    Re: Olympic Hosts Portrayed As Gloomy (Generally)

    We're so used to the doom and gloom stories coming out of an apparently ill-prepared Olympic site (stadium preparations cleaned up literally the night before the Opening Ceremonies), I certainly hope this isn't the time that our fears are 'founded.' National pride is at stake here and that's why I'm 99% sure it will look great opening day.
