Michael, have a look back in history. The games were just a contest, bragging rights if you will. In the original games, athletes competed, and winnners would receive a simple white strip of cloth to designate the ultimate winner. All accomplishment is fleeting.

wow, people really dislike the idea of being "critical" or having an "opinion". I don't see at all how your post, Randy, could be twisted into possibly criticizing the Olympics or it's participants. To suggest that you should go out and coach for free instead of notice, think, and speak your opinion is ridiculous. I didn't see anything malicious in your post at all.
