      The "official" explanation is that most spectators at baseball and soccer games are local people. The spectators at the Olympic venues would come from all over Japan. It would create more movement of people across Japan.

      Of course, it makes no sense. But people don't care. They just want to stick it to the arrogant global elites.

      • Just a sidenote: this morning the actual games of the Games are already afoot. Japan women's softball team beat Cananda 8-1.

            That's so stupid it is hard to know where to begin. Like asking a weatherman who predicts a hurricane if he is happy it came....this whole fiasco was predictable if you 10 minutes looking each day.

            BTW I'm the only one here that went to everyday of the Trials... where were you supposedly great fans?

            Having the Olympics during a pandemic, in an unvaccinated country, is nuts..

            They could delay until September....but TV says no...so there you are.

              • These games could be held May or June next year, and the WC possibly September or October...at this point it is all about corporate profit.

                    As if a Ugandan could hide in Japan.

                    Will be interesting to see if he claims asylum

                      22%....I'm sure that will stop an outbreak... the worse state in the US has 30% fully vaccinated.


                      For unvaccinated,
                      coronavirus is soaring again


                      An analysis of adjusted rates for cases, covid-19 deaths
                      and hospitalizations shows the country’s summer upswing
                      is slamming the unprotected while others enjoy freedom

                      • Coronavirus cases are increasing almost exclusivelyin the unprotected population. So The Washington Post adjusted its case, death and hospitalization rates to account for that — and found that in many places, the virus continues to rage among those who have not received a shot.

                          The US passed that on April 16. Here's some key attendance numbers on or before(with US vaccination numbers partial/full).

                          Super Bowl - 25,000 (9.6/2.8 full)

                          Final Four 17,500 (32.4/18.7 full)

                          MLB Opening - varied by team, but averaged around 20% of capacity (30.3/17.1 full)
