    But to me, it is better that THEE best athletes are there.

    It would be a shame to then deprive the world of sending their best to the games.

      Those that play just for the glory of the game. Some of the best ever who made sacrifices for a medal and a chance to stand on the pedestal and hear their nation's anthem; no Nike endorsement or Disney on Ice contract in their future. They weren't perfect and perhaps their quality does not measure up to today's standards. But they were a joy to watch!!

      Sort of like Little League baseball used to be.

      Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon. -susan ertz
