Pure madness I tell you!!!!
Yes the great city of Vancouver is preparing to greet the world, to put on an event of epicness.... *cough sputters......* The Olympics of 2010..... and guess who gets to be a part of it? MOI..... now as you read I would love for you to feel the sarcasm that drips from every word. The utter distaste I have for it is unexplainable. The lies, the deception, all for what?
Yes in just 22 days Vancouver shall host the world. It will be a time in history that is remembered, and probably celebrated by many. A time when the world gets together for one common goal, to celebrate athletes, and reward them for their hard work and determination. For those reasons I think the Olympics are wonderful... BUT
yes yes always a but.... But really at what cost? I will be in the Canada Hockey venue, it shall host all mens hockey, and a good portion of the female hockey, what an exciting experience, or so I am told. YET I do not get to see the games, I do not get to bring food from home, I do not get to talk to athletes, I do not get to talk to the press, I do not get to ask for autographs, nor do I get to take pictures.
So really it's just a job.... tell me what is so great about it? Now I have to wonder who else has experienced the Olympics at this level????
And really since I am not able to talk to the press about my feelings of how the Olympics are and how I feel about helping to host an event, I wonder if I can Blog about it?
K...... so tell me your thoughts on the Olympics!!!!!
