The whole rest of the world can bite me. For those of you who don't want to read these articles, they basically say that they don't want the USA to mention September 11 at the olympics and that USA's patriotism is obnoxious.

I admire Americans sense of patriotism, it is something we don't see too often in Australia. The Olympics are a prestigious event on the world stage, I can understand that the IOC don't want it to be dominated by one nation.

I think there should be some part of the ceremony devoted to remembering the events of September 11. I'm sure there will be.

right murphy3, I ignore the olympics because NBC rams figure skating and gymnastics down our throats. NBC needs to realize that the days are gone when men 21-45 will watch whatever is on TV and women are the audience that needs to be drawn in. If they were willing to show us real competitions, then I would be more interested.

I'm already tired of the Olympics and they haven't even started yet. Snooze. I don't have much use for the Winter events unless I'm bored and trying to find something on TV, in which case any form of competition will catch my attention.
