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 […]

Watcher’s Council Nominations – Putin’s Winter Olympics Edition

The Winter Olympics in Sochi are coming up soon, and this picture of Russian President Putin calming down a six-month-old leopard cub who had just attacked and injured two journalists inside a cage seems to be an intriguing foreshadowing of upcoming events. After all, Russia’s Putin is the same guy who threatened to cut Islamic […]

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 […]

IOC suspends the INDIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE for (Don’t laugh too hard!) GOVERNMENT INTERFERENCE! I’m so glad the SOVIET UNION wasn’t guilty of THAT!

This article made me see red today:  Suspension of Indian Olympic Association figures in RS The reason cited by the International Olympic Committee was (get this!) “governmental interference”.  Don’t laugh too hard.  You might get hurt.  Here are the pertinent paragraphs: In a huge embarrassment for India, the International Olympic Committee on Tuesday suspended the […]

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 […]

WRITER in CHICAGO TRIBUNE said on JULY 19: NO MORE PRO BASKETBALL TEAMS in OLYMPICS!

Chicago values might not include Chick-fil-A but this writer (Gerald D. Skoning) gets it right about the basketball!  A few highlights: Stern said he hopes to make the Olympics a 23-and-younger event, returning it to the college kids and NBA players with only a few years of pro experience. That would be a good start, […]

MATT HUNTER in 2009 GETS IT RIGHT about the OLYMPICS! AMATEURS ONLY!

This column in Bleacher Report by Matt Hunter in 2009 says it right:  No pro athletes in the Olympics! Olympics today are filled with professional athletes in all team sports in both the summer and winter Olympic games. The Olympics has lost that edge that it once possessed. The youth and up and coming players […]

BEST PART OF THE WINTER OLYMPICS HAS ALREADY OCCURRED!

By Elwood “Sandy” Sanders The best part of any Olympics (I wait for it every Olympics!) is the opening ceremonies. Each nation comes into the stadium with their athletes, one (sometimes the only one) carrying the flag of their nation, except for Taiwan, the Republic of China, our old ally in WWII until President Nixon […]
