Quote Of The Day
“[My mother] knew I was bound for Peru, and the International Olympic Committee session at which Paris would be awarded 2024 and LA 2028. ‘These Olympic people,’ my mother said, ‘have a big problem on their hands. Why in the world are they making all these people fly halfway around the world for a meeting for something that has already been decided? It’s a waste. It’s dumb.’ … When this sort of thing makes its way to mom in South Florida, who has to leave her home because of a really bad hurricane, and it’s enough that she stops and wants to lecture the sportswriter son – yes, these Olympic people have a big problem on their hands.”
