  11. Your opinion is different than theirs, fine. It doesn't make you smarter than anyone though.
  12. So, despite Zika, polluted water, violence, poorly constructed Olympic village, etc... who is looking forward to the party the Brazilians are going to throw?? And how can we stream the opening ceremony live (since NBC will delay its broadcast)?
