    Default It's the Olympic Committee. They never fail to fail.



    I think the commentator makes solid points regarding the IOC's posture as respects the participation of Russian athletes. The IOC never fails to disappoint along with their long history of lousy partners. You needn't watch the whole episode as they lead off with the latest sad news on the upcoming event but if you're not familiar with TVP, they are a Polish government organ that covers the conflict in depth and repost war clips from Telegram that most YT channels won't, probably because they are not on You Tube for the money.

    Me? I thoroughly enjoy the Olympics but have come to loathe the organizers.

    One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing.

    The IOC is more corrupt than FIFA and F1/FIA.

    The IOC is only missing the bunga-bunga parties (or maybe we just haven't heard about them).

    Why do we still have olympics?
    "Banning books in spite of the 1st amendment, but refusing to regulate guns in spite of "well regulated militia' being in the 2nd amendment makes no sense. Can't think of anyone ever shot by a book
