Olympics corruption? Can it be?

The USA is seeded #1. Canada is about to win. The ref takes matters into her own hands with several calls in a row that are controversial, to put it very mildly. The USA finally benefits from her generosity with a gold-medal game that they really did not earn. The ref receives scathing criticism. Her dad defends her.

Blah blah blah … and what is the point.

This Olympics seems to me to be the one in which it became obvious that corporate interests have wrested away all semblance of the original community spirit of the games. At least the naïve could certainly be forgiven for thinking that.


So call me naïve.
