Sochi Olympics

The Olympic venue has gotten so out of hand, with hosting countries spending billions of their own currencies to keep up with what seems to be expected of them. 


Such a waste.


Such a waste, also, is the media hype pointing out all the things seemingly going wrong in our host country's venue.  Not just in our Winter Olympics 2014, but in years prior as well.


Media hypesters (Is that a word?  Did I just coin a new 2014 soundbite??) need to mind their manners and not point out every little thing they find wrong about Russia's Olympics.  We are guests.  We certainly might not agree with any political points with Russia, but these are the Olympics, not politics, and, again, we are guests.  It's an international sports venue.  Stop pointing out the same posted toilets and manholes and cups of water.            


I would like the media to stop being rude guests.

It's like they're all in junior high. So tiresome.

I don't know why any country would want to host the Olympics anymore. Between the unrecoverable cost, the inability to successfully police the drugs, and the irresistible draw to terrorism, this may be the beginning of the end.
