Do the Olympics Matter Anymore?

Maybe it’s just me – which is highly likely – but it’s harder and harder for me to really see the point of these events, especially when they seem to require increasing amounts of money to stage. Aren’t there enough competitions out there for each of these events…even curling? Do the Olympics really benefit the host cities/nations? Do these multi-bajillion dollar facilities really have long-term value?

Angling for the gold medal in skepticism…
