What Isn’t China Fixing in the Olympics?
This is just absurd. First they faked the skyline in the Opening Ceremonies with digitally enhanced graphics. Next up they had a cuter 9-year-old girl stand in as the face for the real girl who sung the actual anthem at the Opening Ceremony because the real girl wasn’t cute enough. Then we find out that Bela Karolyi suspected the Chinese were using 10-year-old ringers on their gymnastics team. And if you did watch any of the Olympics (which I got boonswaggled into seeing briefly), there’s no question about it — those chicks are not 16. Mark Chmura thinks those girls are underage.
OK, well if that wasn’t enough, no sporting event would be complete without a conspiracy theory. I was hearing all night from my sister, who was watching the events, how the judges kept screwing us. “The judges are screwing us, the judges are biased against the U.S., the judges must be paid off.” Apparently the U.S. women’s gymnastics team won silver while China won gold. Any shockers there? And as for her charge against the judges, I must show her this video so her suspicions can be confirmed. Luckily I’m in the U.S. and can write this without fear of having my site blocked to boot.
