I was talking more about athletes though. I mean unless you are MJ or Kobe, by the time you're 30, the "good games" end.

The second thing I have against them is what is happenning with the Spanish bb team: they haven't a place where make the practices till the Games begin, and they (spaniards) are still looking for one, and they have already had to change their traveling plan. http://www.as.com/baloncesto/articul...asdaibal_1/Tes

If they cannot give the sportmen/women one place to practice, how the hell China got the Games?
Cash money is an army, better yet a Navy The fact that many western countries and particularly American are heavily indebt to China certainly helped their cause, hard to boycott and publicly disrespect a nation you owe that much $ too, and are doing billions of dollars worth of business with yearly.

Cuz lets be serious, every hates human rights violators til they need cheap labor for compressor, computer chips, nikes w/e. Most people bitch and moan about the violations but knowingly or unknowingly buy products that were made in such a fashion. Id say a good 90% of people that claim moral outrage over the violations are guilty of supporting it hundreds of times a year.

Agree, but yet angry with the lack of practice places, that's a direct part of the Games. . I mean, that must be (and I think it is) one of the requests to just get into considerations to have Olympic games.

are you a Jay-Z fan?

"Takeover"

The takeover, the break's over nigga
God MC, me, Jay-Hova
Hey lil' soldier you ain't ready for war
R.O.C. too strong for y'all
It's like bringin a knife to a gunfight, pen to a test
Your chest in the line of fire witcha thin-ass vest
You bringin them Boyz II Men, HOW them boys gon' win?
This is grown man BIA, get you rolled into triage
Beatch - your reach ain't long enough, dunny
Your peeps ain't strong enough, fucka
Roc-A-Fella is the army, better yet the navy
Niggaz'll kidnap your babies, spit at your lady
We bring - knife to fistfight, kill your drama
Uh, we kill you motherfuckin ants with a sledgehammer
Don't let me do it to you dunny cause I overdo it
So you won't confuse it with just rap music.

lol, why they are going to need an excuse? if they play well and they don't win, it's fair enough in my books.

Very well said.

Although the government telling bar owners not to allow Blacks or Mongolians in their establishments is still fucked up. That's a different type of human right violation.

And the pictures of the sky over there continue to disgust me. I can't imagine walking around breathing that shit, let alone running a marathon.

Although in fairness, I can't imagine running a marathon period

I'm not glued to the TV by any means, but as long as there's a competition involving a Canadian I'll watch it and usually enjoy it.

GO CANADA

I couldnt care less about 98% of the sports in the Olympics when its not the Olympics, and i could care less about 98% when it is the Olympics, but ill cheer a Canadian if nothing else is on TV :P

Waste of taxpayer $ imo, winning a gold in w/e event doesnt really do anything for a country but some cheap bragging rights, but you want real bragging rights, have strong currency, a free society, decent minium wage, healthcare and respect.

Let me add, plz God, never let Toronto get the big $ pit known as the Olympics, so we can be in debt like Montreal for 30 years.
