Winter Olympics Feel-Good Factor

Recommended Posts

feel good...about our taxes being used to fund minority sports so they can win some pointless medal so the politicians can trumpet how great Britain is.

feel good...no...feel ripped off and over taxed...yes.

Thought America did pretty poorly, especially as they were to tipped to be top of the medal table.

Wasn't long ago they would have won by a mile.

Maybe I am over thinking this, put I can't help thinking in many areas they are losing their dominance (either that or they are getting sick of snow!!!)

Barely noticed it, I think this kind of thing has had it`s day for whipping the "whole nation" :rolleyes: into a frenzy, far too many channels, phones and other distractions to get masses of people on the same wavelength regarding a sporting event. Diana was probably the last great coming together of the sheeple around a common theme?

I really enjoyed it - even if the cost of hosting it was ridiculous.

It was nice to watch ice hockey in HD for once despite some really boring matches.

Dislike the fact that so much funding goes towards what are in essence hobbies, doubt I'd get many benefits if I quit my job and just started, I dunno, skateboarding all day.

Paddy Power reckoned it cost us £3.4m a medal!

Pfft.

£75 billion on LLoyd's / RBS bailouts and it brought zero enjoyment to the world.

Same can't be said for the best sport spectacle that humanity offers. (I'm winter sport biased BTW)
