Who Are the Good, Bad and the Ugly Americans of the Olympics So Far?

August 01, 1992

I hear cries that it is overkill to send NBA players to the Olympics to massacre their opponents. I cannot disagree more. The Olympics should be a gathering of the best athletes in the world. Following the logic of these whiners, we should adopt a new policy for choosing our track team, which also consists primarily of professional athletes. For example, our men's 1,600-meter relay team is far too good to be beaten, so let's ban these runners and pick up some lesser talents.
