WHAT if they had an OLYMPICS and nobody WANTED IT? COULD HAPPEN…

Basking in the defeat of the latest example of crony capitalism (The stadium in Shockoe Bottom) I read this at Deadspin (A great sports place I do not read often enough.  I even asked if they were interested in me to write for them.  No word; their loss. Mine, too.  Deadspin is a good edgy […]

NOT LIKELY any NEW NATIONS will MEDAL this OLYMPICS: INFOSTRADASPORTS

I found this useful and nifty medal tracker that projects the medal count for the upcoming Olympics and it projects the USA tying for the most golds (14) but falling short in the total medal count to, wait for it!, Norway!  Norway wins 36 to 30 medals!  Here it is for your further review – […]

NO MIRACLE on ICE again in 2014! SPORTS IMPERIALISM will be AGAIN at the WINTER GAMES: NHL players allowed to play for their nation!

I had nursed the faint hope that perhaps sports imperialism in the form of pro athletes in the hockey portion of the Winter Olympics would due out because the NHL would not alter its season to accommodate the pros in the Games.  But alas (as I am in many areas since I got married!) I […]

SHOULD SOUTH AFRICA and BOTSWANA co-sponsor the WINTER OLYMPICS in 2022?

I have blogged that Botswana ought to have a national curling team.  Set up some Olympic-quality curling ice in Gaborone (say about 8 sheets or so) and then do try outs.  But nobody can curl in Botswana, Sandy?  It would take 50 years to have a competitive team.  I disagree. If you get a name […]

DID MITT ROMNEY save the OLYMPIC SPIRIT? HE DID bring INTEGRITY to the 2002 GAMES BUT he did NOT STOP SPORTS IMPERIALISM!

I was amazed last evening while waiting for the walkout of Romney’s acceptance speech by the Ron Paul delegates that never occurred.  I was amazed to hear one of our genuine sports heroes, Mike Eruzione, one of the captains of the Miracle on Ice hockey team, say Mitt Romney saved the Olympics.  Yes that Mike […]

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” […]

LET’S KEEP A NATION LIKE BOTSWANA IN MIND when we CONSIDER MEN’S BASKETBALL or DREAM TEAM 1994. NEVER AGAIN HAVE SPORTS IMPERIALISM!

Two fascinating articles shed light on my feelings about the Olympic Games. The Republic of Botswana (one of my favorite African nations for its continuous peaceful electoral history, never a military coup, respect for human rights and an independent judiciary, and enormously high standard of living compared to other African nations) has never won an […]

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
