DO WE EXPECT 'THE OLYMPICS' to be anything other than what life is everyday? DO we expect some magical miracles to change for a couple weeks as ones pound each other face to face as in boxing. Well at least that seems more appropriate in the everyday, day to day existence. I use to love watching the Olympics, I could not get enough. The best in the world representing there country with pride, and the pride evident! Is that the world of today? In a world of decaying uncertainties in all corners, I see advertisers selling their same spew! I see so called writers resorting to words that have become the in thing written with no heart! Like intentionally garbled miss-spelled words of garbage that are text today not with values or heart, BUT to be heard, to just simply 'communicate.'
I'm ashamed at the sensationalized junk and junk journalistic crap I have stumbled across! I do not watch TV but cannot get away from the garbage scowls that infiltrate every nook and cranny of what is left. My home page is full of headline "CRAP!"
A young lady comes from out of no where to win the gold and people are talking about her 'HAIR!' what kind of journalist would even write of that???? A little dance out of excitement from a tennis star and that's a no no??? Overly hyped superstars that have endorsements to fulfill, that are not of medal caliber, rob the headlines because they wreak of sexual overload!!!
The news worthy underdogs that are real, 'common' not beautiful, just ordinary people.
I think the Olympics have become just like most entertainment of the modern era. All about the $$$$$$$$$$'s and watching commentators making many more times the common people make, with millionaire athletes there to stride into history as golden warriors, as they carry the gold not from medals but from advertisers and P. R. firms. Whilst those of us that must work and raise our families in a world of ever present threats of war and death!
DAMN!!! WE WISH FOR LITTLE PEOPLE, WE THE ONES THAT MAKE THE FRICKING WORLD GO ROUND BABY!!! WE THE UGLY, UNPOPULAR FIGHTING FOR A TINY PIECE OF, NOT GOLD, SILVER, OR BRONZE! WE WANT OUR RECOGNITION AS THE WATER THAT FLOATS THE FRICKING YACHTS!!! THE OVER HYPED COMMERCIALISM, SMART ASS COLLEGE EDUCATED JOURNALISTIC TYPES, WHETHER ATHLETES OR PULITZER WANNABES, NEED TO REMEMBER ONE THING. WE THE COMMON, AVERAGE, REGULAR, FAMILY LOVING MEMBERS OF THE WHOLE DAMN WORLD BABY!!! WE THE REGULAR FOLK, NO MATTER WHAT COLOR, RELIGION NOR ANY OTHER THING, NOTHING ELSE MATTERS, WE ARE THE HEART, THE SOUL OF THE WORLD!!! YE BEST BE PLAYING UP TO US, NOT THE HIGH FALUTING, UPPITY, CRUST.....WE ARE THE WORLD, BY BILLIONS 'WE' MAKE THE WORLD GO ROUND! WE BE THE 99%, YE BEST START REPRESENTING US!!!
