The Daily What

I’m sure there will be a chug for the wrong national anthem at least once.
What about wrong flag?
Stranded in Sonoma
Gymnasts of dubious ages gender.
Kazakhstan anthem from Borat played by mistake.
Hey…it actually happened at a meet in Kuwait.
At LAST – someone came up with a way to make the Olympics INTERESTING!!!

The Olympics–A Dream Come and Gone
The games have begun! Now, let’s call them a wrap!
The Olympics have devolved into a cesspool of international propaganda, intrigue, and cheating–not to mention a subsidized bacchanalian venue for young athletes who could just as well fornicate on their own dime rather than using the 150,000 condoms (15 per athlete) distributed by the United States Olympic Committee.
Sandra Fluke would be appreciative of the USOC condom largesse but are contributors to the USOC aware their dollars are helping pay America’s Olympians to safely do what they would do even without free prophylactics?
The inspiration for the modern Olympics, the ancient Greek religious/athletics festival dating to 776 B.C., was beset with corruption and so, too, is the modern Olympiad. The chief difference is that today we spend billions staging the events whereas the wiser Greeks back then spent little and benefitted from a suspension of city-state wars, conflicts they resumed soon after the games.
Our conflicts continue during the games.
As for contraception, the naked Greek athletes were on their own but, since they were all male, the chance of procreating with their fellow athletes was less than minimal.
Aside from publicity for the host nation, there are few perks derived from hosting the modern Olympics and the potential financial liabilities far outweigh any benefits, a reality which could reach astronomical proportions should Israeli suggestions of terrorist attacks at the 2012 London Summer Olympics come to fruition and Mitt Romney’s negative critique of security preparedness turns out to be accurate.
The admirable goals of the modern Olympiad, of buff, young athletes promoting brotherhood and equanimity, of demonstrating to the world that nations could compete peacefully without destroying one another, were exploded in 1972 when Muslim terrorists murdered 11 Israeli athletes and coaches at the Munich massacre.
Those unprovoked attacks were neither unprecedented nor the last instances of un-brotherly Olympic behavior. . .
