    I have no intention of watching the games, although I would tune in for that.

    Why announce this in advance if they really wish to do it?? I would be very surprised now if it is permitted to happen.

    Well put Mr. Putin! you described yourself so well! now go and repeat continuously in a mirror to your reflection until you realize the hypocrisy and poignancy of the words you speak!

    “Extremists are always trying to draw attention to themselves. They are narrow-minded people. The whole world sees them as criminals with no regard for human life.”

    It would be all the more poignant if it were played to the following video which also features former Olympian Bruce Genner and a wealth of other athletes.

    The ex-KGB spook Vlad the Impaired is in love with somebody of his own sex: himself.
