Comment 3 by Schrodinger's Cat :

The problem I have with the Olympics....indeed sport in general.....is that I don't see in what sense any of the sports persons are playing for me. It doesn't affect my life one iota if 'Team GB' win or lose.

The only time I feel comfortable supporting a team is the local gaelic football team, as many of my friends and neighbours are on the playing, and there is a genuine wish for success. Regarding the Olympics, they have taken on a ridiculously nationalistic theme, with National tables popping up everywhere. They are a celebration of individual talent, I'd like it to return towards that direction.
