    I've thumbed you down because it's you. And because someone else has also.

    If I felt it I'd probably think that it is either draught (and would consequently yell "close the bloody window!"😉 or that some desperate gay makes a move on me (not sure if it is right expression, I heard something like that in film "Man who wasn't there"😉.

    Lots of people are "feeling it"!

    But I think terrorism has thrown a damper on things in general. The world appears to be "feeling" insecure, and so the "spirit" has been squelched. Just another of my opinions. 😉

    In fact I think the more professional the games are the less interest.

    And the Doping issues won't help either.

    Joseph,
    I agree, terrorism puts fear in a lot of people. They are accomplishing their mission, when people allow this to stop them from doing things.

    it's troubling to exalt athletes when destitution and hunger are rampant...
    when a government cannot help sustain its own citizens,
    and yet wants the honor of hosting international games,
    the blade of the guillotine is sharpened by the poor...

    Has anyone managed to get this far without seeing any of it or without hearing about any of the results?

    Yes. Maybe I heard results in the radio, but I didn't listen 😉

    Yup. I have no clue who any of the athletes are, which countries are doing well, etc. This will be the first Summer Olympic event I've missed completely, since I first remember watching it.

    Watched the opening ceremonies and the competitions just about everyday. My favorite, I must admit, is the women's volleyball.

    Are they supposed to play in their undies? 😉
