I love when people feel the need to make sweeping generalizations. They are so easy to poke holes in and have the added advantage of making the writer look, as my English stepfather used to say, “a right twat”. This guy is the perfect example.
What do the Olympics mean to me?
The answers nothing, honestly I couldn’t care less about “The Games”…I’m not too sure anyone really cares about them all that much either, No real people anyway…
So all the people on my Twitter feed watching their favorite athlete, sport, country – none of them are “real people”? The people expressing their joy and excitement over tennis, cycling, the 100 meter Finals – none of them are real?
Look, I get that you don’t like the Olympics – I have no problem with that. They are too commercial, too taken over by business interests, less about “athletic performance” and more about just winning. I get that it’s a nightmare for those who have to live in an Olympic city or country. I get that the huge amounts of money spent is better used elsewhere.
But when you make claims that “No one seems to care…” You just make yourself look like an idiot.
