This news story is easily the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read. It’s four weeks from Opening Ceremonies for the Summer Olympics, and the International Olympic Committee sends a Cease and Desist letter to Ravelry (for God’s sake!!) not to use the term “Ravelympics”, because it is “disrespectful to our country’s finest athletes and fails to recognize or appreciate their hard work”
First of all, the Olympics is a sports competition, that’s all. You can ring out all the grand metaphors you want, but in the end it’s sports. I say this as a huge sports fan.
Well, I could go on for paragraphs and paragraphs, but I won’t. You get the idea.
