      A lot of the events don't interest me much, but I do like the Downhill and the sliding events -- especially the Skeleton.

        Winter in Switzerland, Summer in Greece? I don't think the Swiss would put up with any nonsense, and would keep things running like a, pardon the pun, a Swiss watch. And besides being the birthplace of the Olympics, the Greeks would have something to earn some $$ off of, augmenting their existing tourism and olive oil trade.

        I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.

          For laughs,look at the state of the Olympic facility in Athens. It's gonna need some sprucing up.

            Lake Placid is looking a little dated. Too hot in Hotlanta. Salt Lake? Hmmm....I read John Brown's book.....what a quack.
