THE Olympic Popularity Contest

February 25, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Click Here for the latest Yahoo! article on the Vonn / Mancuso Olympic elementary school level popularity contest.

We all know competition or sport has rivalries, but this one is just getting ridiculous. Every time I hear about Vonn and Mancuso at this point, the only thing I can picture is those two in is Hollywood skimpy ski suits filming the newest movie “Mean Girls Take the Olympics”.

Do these two know This Is The Olympics??

You know, where countries are supposed to compete honorably for medals of recognition for their country’s best athletes?

Not where you are supposed to continue a high school or college rivalry.

The Olympics serve the purpose of uniting countries in ways no other events can do. Now the games have been made to look like a contest “of who gets liked best”.

This is a reflection of how shallow some of the people in our country have become … that is extremely sad.

PS – Oh well, The Olympic had to get tainted by a few of ours at some time.
