Hahaha! You naughty boy/girl!
Well I am kinda glad that everyone made a great fuss and stirred up about there being a possible "happening". I knew it would not be so! Yet how do
we know that the awake people didn't do a service in averting a possible "happening"?
I don't know what all the fuss is about. I can do 60 mile mountain bike rides and all, but I don't expect a medal for it. I am just happy with the
experience of nature and getting the fresh air!
Tell you what tho'! I will be glad when the Olympics are all over. It has ruined Radio 4. I keep having to turn it off because I get so bored and
yawn with all the coverage. It is bordering on brainwashing, I tell you!
They are saying things like how they are going to make sporting heroes out all the kids with all these elaborate plans. It will all sink like a stone
of course as soon as the world's attention is distracted once more. Haha, hypocrisy! The government in the UK in recent years sold all the state
schools' land off for cash to building developers and Tesco, etc. So they ain't got anywhere to play sports anyway. That coupled with the fact that
only middle class individuals get to be Olympians. You check it out! In the UK all the competitors are from wealthy public school families. Even BBC
Radio 4 commented on this as a moral issue!
I am just not interested because it is “their” games and I am not included, just as I am not included in “their” society. I don't mean any
harm to it. Glad they are all having a good time, but sport is much better played than watched in my book.
Yes, I do get off my ass. I don't have a car and I cycle everywhere!
I really enjoyed your rant and the laughs from the other comments! Thanks.
