Okay.  Calmer than yesterday, but still irked at the USOC.  *grumbles loudly under breath*


I just ran across this video and discovered that it is THE Bob of Ravelry fame!


Poor Bob. Cookie? No cookie. Cookie? COOKIE! LOL

so mad I could just spit

Well.  We have less than 50 days to go to the Olympic Games (gee, can I talk about it?  I'm not PAYing anyone, so is it an infringement?) and the USOC has decided to piss off 2 million people at once.


Knitters Outraged After U.S. Olympic Committee Squashes Knitting Olympics—and Disses Knitters


This has to be the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen.  How many other items, events, and ideas have the suffix"-lympic" as common use?

I'm am totally disgusted by the actions of a money-grubbing group that claims to have the athletes 'rights and dedication' at heart.

Maybe more later.  I'm just sickened by the idiocy of the USOC.
