One of the most corrupt and immoral nations bought the Olympics and we should be celebrating? Russia spent 51 BILLION dollars on building the biggest boondoggle since the US Govt paid $800 for toilet seats.
But what do we expect? The Olympics are a farce. They are a political hot potato that nobody deserves.
Corruption is one of the rings of the Olympic Ideals, faster, higher, more crooked. Salt Lake City's winter Olympics was filled with payoffs and corruption so this isn't just a "the US is better than the Ruskies" post.
It's about what the Olympics brings to an area. The goal should be tourism, and new venues that can be used for the benefit of the community.
How many venues were built for Olympic games and destroyed? I'll give you Sarajevo and their war, but come on, why waste money for a two week project that tickets are STILL available to?
Putin got his Olympics, he's still the power in Russia, but with every #SochiProblems post on Twitter or #SochiFail I see, I laugh.
Enjoy your bought Olympics 45 minutes away from the town that it is named for. Enjoy the debt and the buildings that surround the swamp of Sochi.
Cause the US, will be celebrating Gold... that is unless the refs for the 1972 Olympic Basketball team are out of retirement.
