Good try and it shure would be nice if the Olympics was just about the athletic performances. But ever since the dream team, when pro athletes were allowed to compete; both the fans and athletes have brought this, our country is better then yours, to a fever pitch.
Where did you get your medal count?
2600 athletes competed.
258 won medals
ratio: about 1 in 10 won a medal.
I sympathize with your comment, but the 1936 games were well known for their political component.
I also agree about pro-sport ruining the games.
Xman, Joe sticks with the old method to count, that is using his fingers and toes. Being winter and he wears mittens, it tends to skew the count.
I happen to know Joe has alternative sources for his information…and they usually are Cubans, the CIA or even the Mob.
btw, want to see a good movie?
“An American Affair” on Netflix.
It is about Mary Meyer, a well connected woman…CIA, leftist groups, Timothy Leary and President Kennedy…and her unsolved murder, shortly after Kennedy’s death.
After you watch the movie, then go read her wiki. Amazing.
Hey Joe, her wiki would be a great post for your site.
Mary Meyer…I remember reading about her in the JFK conspiracy stuff, in the mix with her husband and E Howard Hunt and the gang…man, I wonder if the people who actually were involved in the assassination even know the whole story of what was going on…one convoluted web. Hmmm…I see the movie is available for playing instantly :-) will have to check it out over the weekend! Thanks!
They probably used “cut-outs”.
Don’t know where they got that medal count…maybe whoever did that picture got the medals mixed up with number of truckloads of condoms used in Vancouver ;-)
I do recall having competitions in my lusty youth…to see how many times in a 24 hour period I could score, but never got a medal for it…or anything else.
Better watch out. Mars may retaliate for this graphic.
