Let the Hand-Wringing begin..
My god, what a miserable, poor, destitute country we live in.
Let's all emmigrate to Togo, quick, while no one is looking.
Hey, so we're not the best in the world at sports, that's okay, we do okay democracy, human rights and free and fair elections, right?
Personally, I want a lawyer helping me who hates to lose, I want a Doctor that doesn't want his patients to die, I want a teacher that kicks my kids' ass when they don't do their math.. I don't want them to just "show up", and that's kinda what's happening.
The Olympic result is just a symptom of a problem, not a problem itself. Oh, and btw, as posted on another blog, the US provides NO government funding to their athletes.
Most of the athletes from even small countries are PROFESSIONAL in that the host country spends a lot of money regardless how poor the country .
Canada pretends that the Olympics are for amateur athletes and that is not reality ... so don't blame the athletes .
Bronze= 2nd loser
