It was in my mind, which only goes back to Los Angeles 1984, but it wasn’t even close for me.
Sure, there were some nice and memorable moments. There has to be some at the Olympics. However, for how many I expect of an Olympics, there weren’t nearly enough.
And then there were all the overhanging clouds of the empty seats, drug bans, zika, booing, green unclean water, lack of economics, excess of politics and so on. And wait till you see the “legacy” these games will leave behind! That’s if they get through the Paralympics first. Sounds like they’re near bankrupt for it.
Anyway, in my limited memory of some 32 years, I declare these games the worst ever (that I’ve seen).
Wouldn’t that be the ultimate Olympics story? If somehow between now and then, North and South Korea could get their act together, likely with help with other nations, to be unified. That way, there wouldn’t be a spectre of a North Korea over the Olympics all the time.
Of course, lots of people would say that’s a ridiculous dream, but how many Olympic dreams are ridiculous when they begin? If there’s one the thing Olympics should do, it should encourage you to dream bigger. If you can’t imagine something happening, then get a bigger imagination.
There’ll also be those who say Korean unification isn’t an Olympic dream, but dreams to me, are dreams. We’ve seen more remarkable change in our life time with the reunification of Germany, disbanding of others for independence where there should be with people of their own identities.
So why not a Winter Olympics in 2018 in one unified Korea?
In Pyeongchang, Korea.
The GI Joe 2: Retaliation movie was supposed to have been released on June 29, 2012. About a month beforehand, it was delayed a full 9 months until March 29, 2013! The “real” reasons have been cited as poor 3D rendering, fan favourite character Duke getting killed way too early on, fan reaction test scores being mediocre to bad, etc. (Collider.com)
Well, I don’t buy that.
