It's just really weird that they had no problem addressing the social issues, yet won't air an American athlete's grievances about the course.
Also, the orcas thing is beyond bizarre. For those who don't know, apparently a while back the Russians captured two baby orca whales. There were plans to work them in to the opening ceremony, which eventually was changed to "have them on display" at the opening ceremony. A couple weeks ago, they were all "nah, no orcas," prompting people to start asking "well, where are these animals?" I mean, I'm sure they're long dead, but still.
Geez, way to make the rest of feel like jerks. "After I donate my kidney to a friend in need, I'll still make the effort to go Bonnaroo and see all my friends even though I'm not crazy about the lineup this year."

This thread is by far the best thread on the board meow. I am grateful that its not a spoiler filled exhibition of reporting and instead a fun filled summary of why this will go down as the most extraordinarily obtuse Olympic games ever. I mean, how are people bathing and using the bathroom? Serious questions.
