SUPPORT CURLING in USA! GIVE MONEY so we can get the $50,000 MATCHING FUNDS from the USOC!

I have long said I would never give a dime to the USOC or the IOC due to the pro athletes in the Olympic Games. BUT I never said, do not support sports or Olympic sports – just find a sport or Olympic hopeful to support and DIRECTLY give to them! Here’s a chance to […]

A PROPOSAL in re OLYMPICS: HAVE A PROFESSIONAL and AMATEUR DIVISION for sports such as BASKETBALL!

I am still concerned about the Olympic Games.  I have not backed off a bit:  It’s still sports imperialism to have pro athletes at the Games because not every nation can field a professional team or train pro athletes in sports like tennis.  But I realize that the IOC, the USOC and the moneyed interests […]

OUTRAGEOUS SCORE in OLYMPIC BASKETBALL GAME SHOWS WHY PRO ATHLETES have NO PLACE in the OLYMPICS!

156-73 I don’t know what to say I am so angry.  I want to join the President Obama apology tour.  This kind of outrageous mismatch is exactly the reason why the pro athletes must GO from the Olympic games.  They skew the results so as to hinder true competition.  They offend other nations needlessly.  (And […]

LET’S MAKE THIS CLEAR: I DO SUPPORT our OLYMPIC ATHLETES! I WANT THEM TO WIN! BUT…DO IT RIGHT!

I have written and posted some hard-hitting posts on the Olympics.  I like to use words and phrases to get people to read and think (My hero and role model for this is William Lloyd Garrison the abolitionist agitator and he had tough words to say about a number of issues) such as “sports imperialism” […]

USOC takes a BOLD STAND: “RAVELYMPICS” risks DENIGRATING the real OLYMPIC GAMES! BUT the DREAM TEAM does NOT?

The United States Olympic Committee recently sent a “cease and desist” letter to a knitting website named ravelry.com who wanted to have a knitting contest during the Summer Games.  From the general counsel’s letter (try not to laugh all at once): “We believe using the name ‘Ravelympics’ for a competition that involves an afghan marathon, […]
