  • Olympic Wrap-up

    The USA had the highest total number of gold medals actually handed out to them.
    Because of so many team golds (wSoccer, basketball, Vball, swimming and TF relays), the US contingent will actually take home 128 golden medallions. The Chinese, who were the clear winners on the official medal table, will take home a mere 74 gold medals.

    Overall, though, I'm calling this the most corrupt Olympics ever. Beginning with the fake singer and fake fireworks at the Opening Ceremony, the propaganda-fueled corruption was on. Add in a dubious murder of a person linked to the host's chief rival, the cheating in the gymnastics (not only the underage girls, but the bizarre judging), the screwed-over Swedish wrestler and dozens of other "weird" things that occurred, and you have the most corrupt Olympiad.

    Spectacular show Beijing, but you missed the point entirely. It's not about just the showy lights or the medals or propaganda so that you can further enslave 1.3 billion people. IT IS about fair play, IT IS about sporting competition, and IT IS about winning and losing with dignity.
