Billy Payne had NO Connection whatsoever with the Coca-Cola Corp, other than being in the same city. #2 - If you read the right books, you should learn that Coca-Cola gave the same amount of seed money to the 5 competing bids, precisely because of fears of "favoritism" that ignorant parties like you, would tend to believe. And besides, without Coca-Cola's backing and the other major American corporations' "donations" to the IOC, you would probably not be seeing these Olympic Games today. Now,let me continue ... - Media bus fired at, almost wounding or killing foreign media people. - I am watching the Rhythmic Gymnastics' final, I CANNOT believe the predominant, puke/bile green color of the carpeting they laid out -- giving the gymnasts a sick green pallor. - At these Rio Games, something brought out the worst behavior in Arab/muslim towards another nation, Israel, since Munich 1972! From the opening ceremony glitch of the organizers putting both the Lebanese and Israeli teams in the same bus; the Egyptian judoka not wanting to shake the hand of the Israeli competitor. And these are the Olympic Games... - do you want me to go on?? Edited August 21, 2016 by baron-pierreIV 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
