Still banned from the Olympics.



Some things just don't change.  The logo may be different in 2016, but the following post from 2008 pretty much sums up how it is around here.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Normally, I am a very NONcompetitive, it's-just-a-game, it's-the process-and-not-the-product, kind of person.

The Olympics, despite the whole "bringing the world together" business, apparently brings out the worst in me.

"EAT THAT, Netherland!" 

"Mom, what do you have against the Netherlands?"

"Nothing in particular, it's just who we're against right now. IN YOUR FACE!"

"You're scaring me."

"Whatever. If you can't stand the heat, get off the field. YES! USA!"

"That's it. (click of TV turning off) You're banned from the Olympics."

From this, I have learned two important things:
1. I will never be an Olympics good will ambassador.

2. Always keep possession of the remote control.
