(NBC Olympics)   Regardless of what you think about the Olympics, it is a time we can all put our petty politics and our heated nationalism aside and just enjoy, even if just for a few days, the magnificent spectacle of winter athletes wiping out   (nbcolympics.com) divider line 18

mikaloyd: I think we all know the correct answer here. We should not watch the Olympics. We should not eat at Chic Fil A. We should not watch Duck Dynasty, and we should do all in our power to stop boys from joining boy scouts. FOREVER! Death to the oppressors!

I'm gay homosexual and it's been hilarious to read the gay-oriented blogs I go to since the Sochi thing blew up. You have the guys who were bullied by jocks in high school who hate sports no matter what; there's the activists who jump on anything to screech "Homophobia!!!" without knowing a damn thing about the particular situation; then there's the people who are simply hypocrites, the ones who say boycott all companies who sponsor the Sochi Games but when it's pointed out that that person uses at least one product a day from one of those companies say "But......but.......that's different, we have to make our voice heard!!!!".

Then there was the whole "Elton John is the Worst Human Being Ever In The History Of Humans for daring to playing two gigs in Russia" thing. When those talent-free hags Madonna and Gag(a) played there, they were brave guardians of free speech!!!!, but when EJ wouldn't cancel his gigs, he was a money-grubbing Quisling who once played Sun City and said mean things about Madonna. Yes, EJ is a money-grubber and shoots his mouth off to an embarrassing degree, but it was hilarious that when the video of him reading that awesome speech about freedom and gay rights at the Moscow concert showed up, there was crickets, most of the blogs who had spent months ripping him to bits didn't even post it. Most of the assholes criticizing him wanted him to say nothing so they could screech at him about playing Sun City 30 years ago. When I mentioned that their beloved Cher did too, I got a bunch of "But....but.....that was different because she's a beloved gay diva!!!".

When I pointed out that The Gay Community (tm) got its ass kicked on Chik-Fil-A and Duck Dynasty and that the Professional Gay orgs like GLAAD and HRC actually make things worse by jumping all over things that in the grand scheme of things don't amount to a hill of beans in this world, I was roasted for being a closet case (nope, first came out to someone in 1971) or self-loathing (what bullshiat) or a Republican (nope, registered Socialist since 1985).

CleanAndPure: Its not the Olympics though... its the winter Olympics.

What? The Winter Olympics are a million times better.

Keeve: R.A.Danny: hailin: Fark Russia and Fark the Olympics for not moving the location. I will never watch another one again.

So you agree that the Olympics are a political tool then?
We should screw all the athletes that worked for years for this moment because of political correctness?

This is a tough call. On the one hand, because the USA has just recently reached a level of enlightened acceptance within the past few years means that we are SOOO much better than other cultures that don't develop at exactly the same rate as we do. On the other hand there's my self loathing at being a narrow-minded American. Now I don't know who to cheer for.

Yeah.  Watch him cover the 72 Munich hostage-taking.  Walter Cronkite couldn't have done better.

Stay for the very last line.

McKay was on air 14 hours straight that day. I recommend McKays book The Real McKay. Great read especially in regards to the Munich Games. Greatest sportscaster in history in my opinion, closely followed by Cosell.

National economies on the brink and we still go through with this nationalistic show about who can fall down a snowy mountainside quicker.

Yes Nordic People, be proud that your country are the best at sliding really quickly down an frozen water slide.

Set aside nationalism for the Olympics? Hell, my country has a govt funded program called "own the podium" and in committed to increasing our medal count every time.

IMO this is utterly insulting to the athletes who don't win medals. They're still the super elite, who have dedicated their lives to sport, but omg if you don't come in first you are nobody. Fu#k the Olympics and every country, including mine, that uses it as an international dick-slapping competition.
