The Olympics Thread


I haven't had time to watch even one second of the Olympics, and most of what I've read about it has ranged from concerned to critical, on behalf of both the competing Olympians and the Brazilian people.

But here's an open thread for discussion, and both excited celebration of the athletes and criticism of the corporate games are on topic for this thread.
