Olympics or Reality Show,Where is Your Money ??
I would rather watch Olympics, because it is shown on various channels all day long. Which means what I hear you ask…. It means that I don't have to endure all the reality crap shows that seems to flood our screens these days. Turning on the telly and watching people competing in a race or long jump or trying to throw things further is "far more" interesting than watching people eating bugs and humiliating themselves or obese people in shorts and so called judges making derisory remarks.Just to mention a couple, I could do this for half the fees they get. If some one in the street or else where said these things they would have lawsuits or broken noses. What I can't understand is why are they employed being paid big bucks to be rude, ignorant and just plain insulting to people who seem to take it..
I suppose in warped way they could be compared because both have individuals or teams doing battle. But the Olympics are not trying to con people out of money by voting for our favourite runner or jumper or thrower.
Can the 2012 in London be of this principle, I think not. All the money being ploughed into making a new stadium and all other arenas about the country. The sailing in Dorset, all the upgrades and alterations and upheaval to the local people. The cost, where is the money really coming from? The thing is what happens after. It is like preparing and cooking a meal and then eating. The preparation takes a couple of hours and the eating takes lot less time. All one has to show is dirty dishes and fat bellies.
The Olympics lets say four to five years to build, lots of upheaval and preparation just for two weeks of sport. To make it worse is that the public paid for it and the public still have to pay high prices if they want to be a spectator. Who has the fat bellies at the end of it all, I wonder.
So I say throw your discus and throw it well because we'll still phone to vote who threw it the farthest, does not matter who actually did… Does it?
