    Beijing was just 'awarded' the 2022 Winter Games. The snow-making equipment is starting up as I write this.

    Hopefully, this will be the death knell for this feeding frenzy of greed, corruption...

    JP60, just saw this write-up on water 'quality' in Rio: Athletes at Rio Olympics to compete in 'basically raw sewage'.

    (I know someone who was on the US national team for open water swimming and...

    No, I'm actually not very smart. It's like how on the internet, no one knows you're a dog. My thing is passing for an intelligent human.

    One of the selling points -- to the public -- for the...

    The writer of that article, Andrew Jennings, is the key man in all of these exposes. Jennings started out many years ago (he's in his 70s now) investigating police corruption, organized crime, and...

    Today, heat index was through the roof, so I went out early and took Fat Meat With Mane for a forty-minute walk. Then I hosed him down and put him back out.

    His pony companion was looking a bit...

    Icabad Crane earned $585,980 on the track.

    $585,980.

    Don't you think some of that money should go to 'funding his career'?

    'Help Icabad Crane reach for the stars'? As if a horse that made...

    For anyone looking to gain a thorough understanding of the Olympics, or for anyone who likes to feel their eyes roll back in their head, this is required reading.

    Wow. You've got the beautiful gold color. He's really cute -- and I love his expression in the 3YO photo.

    He was one of the nicest horses I've ever seen. Just so athletic.

    The Guinness family deserves a lot of credit and thanks for breeding a horse like Tamarillo.

    Zizi is by the Akhal-Teke stallion Super Star (scroll to end), pedigree here.

    Her dam is a TB mare, JC name Bett's Jet.

    This (and this) is, George, my other Super Star foal, born in March, out...

    Argh! Page isn't available to non-facebook types like me.

    The Olympic VIP lanes are just for the VIPs. Not for regular Olympic traffic. That's how imperious it is.

    If you're an athlete or a coach, you have to take the buses that shuttle you to/from the...

    Mine is Friesian-KWPN-Arab-ASB. So no draft blood, but mysteriously large feet. I think his Arab-ASB genes help with his natural endurance (he is tireless) and thermoregulation.

    (This is fatty...

    I rarely agree with you, and while I could quibble about bonfire v. dynamite v. chainsaw massacre, I think you have the right idea.

    During the volunteer application process, which seemed never-ending, I was told that the Pan Am organizers were worried about ISIS.

    Not sure why. A large percentage of the metro Toronto...

    Because you are special. :lol:

    Actually, it was the Paralympics. Paralympics are for those with physical disabilities. Special Olympics are for those with intellectual disabilities.

    Here's the map of road closures/courtesy lanes for Vancouver 2010.

    If you needed to go anywhere in the downtown area, the lanes were a real PITA. But now that I know that it was for courtesy cars...

    I like 'cakes of the season'. WTF?

    That said, I'm considering substituting the letters 'JER' for 'IOC' and demanding the same privileges in my next contract. I would like to be welcomed...

    Possible, yes, but it would require a very different IOC. The demands -- like stadium size for the opening/closing -- are outrageous. Even Chicago would need to make a new stadium or completely...

    The Olympic Games is a years-long festival of corruption and construction, followed by about thirty years of paying off massive debts while staring at white-elephant venues. In between those longer...

    At a restaurant in Tokyo, I took a look at their special seasonal horse meat menu and saw an item on offer called 'fat meat with mane'. Which is the perfect description of my horse.

    (FWIW, in...

    I've been waiting for the heat/humidity to affect my fat Friesian X. He's allegedly a minimal-white bay pinto, but I think the white striping along his sides is actually marbling, like Kobe beef. ...

    Perhaps because that while some Pan Am nations don't have much in the way of a robust middle class, they all have a cohort of super-rich people.

    The course was originally built as a 1.10m+ championship-type course. It was big, wide, and technical. No place to...
