Will Rio 2016 be the worst Olympic Games since 1972?

The Olympics failed when it became the Superbowl for nerdy kids. Now that it is thoroughly corrupt, they have assigned it to clowns, who figured out from the last few Olympics that spending billions on it might reward them a couple hundred million, so they slashed expenditures -- keep in mind they are paying an extra 33% across the board for corruption -- and are now holding a farce of an Olympic Games to remind us that the near past is well and truly dead.

If they didn't have 7's Rugby this year, I'd be totally tuning this out.

Oddly, I've never regretted tuning any media out. You miss out, then you notice you no longer care. Weird.

Detox pretty much works that way.
