Sorry, I've been completely sucked in. It's all Olympics all the time in the Shiner house and at the Shiner office. I do apologize.
As my previous post suggested, I've been pretty interested by the international, specifically British, press coverage during the Olympics. The Games have certainly had their problems, and there's a good deal of merit to some of the criticism. One of the memes though is completely out to lunch: Canada's Own the Podium program goes against the Olympic spirit and Canadians should be ashamed for our naked desire to win.
Excellent article on Slate about why this is garbage.
