While it may be that Sochi has issues I think a lot of it is the media hyping it up/magnifying items. The media feast on negativity and will cavort in any bad detail. It's a shame. It is rather weird that I don't recall much talk of security issues for the London Olympics- and that is a city with a history of terrorist acts- versus now. And then the rather petty (in my opinion) stories of spartan athlete quarters and the like. I remember before the last Winter Olympics in Vancouver there were a lot of negative stories in the press about preparedness, location choices, weather etc. Four years later and here we are again.
Anyhow, that's enough from me. I'm looking forward to the competition tomorrow. Go Team Canada. May all athletes from all nations do their best. And may the Games be safe and entertaining for all.
Oh, one thing. I don't know who the female host was for NBC during the opening ceremony but her flippant comment for the audience to go check google to understand why the Russians were using the Cyrillic alphabet in bringing in the countries was uncalled for. Here was a chance for her to explain a bit about Russia's culture and she was just dismissive in tone and commentary. :/
