Olympic luger dies in training-run crash

The Olympics had not even begun and they had their first fatality. The Games were an hour from Opening and this poor bastard was on a training run. http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/35369187/

Let me say I am proud of Canada and I think Canadian athletes are the best at what they do. But if the Millions of dollars were not enough to say these games are worthless how many more fatalities will it take?

And before you all start saying it is a risk he knew about I will say BULLSHIT!!! Why is it acceptable for a man to die in OVER priced GAMES? If you truly think that these games are not anything more then Propaganda then you have proven the point that the money spent on these games was really needed for education.

All these people want to do is to show the world how good they are at the sport they have dedicated their lives to but in costing one man his life I say this is too great a cost.

Until Next Time
I remain
