Let the Olympic Games begin. Wait…not until Friday. The games unofficially begin today with women’s soccer. The preparations are all set. The traffic problems are ready to commence. And even mother nature, after England’s very wet June, is beginning to cooperate. More importantly, the huge amount of money needed to put on the games for the world is paid with a Queen’s ransom…literally. Women will be represented by every country participating for the first time ever. London is sure to have powerful images to share with the world, but will it have its Mexico City or Berlin image of political importance? We don’t have to wait until Friday to find out.
What is your most powerful Olympic image?
Now talk about games gone wrong. A Georgia man set his head on fire as part of a bet with his friends. There may be evidence that alcohol fueled this bravado. We do some dumb things when we get around friends, but this video may prove that we are rather tame compared to some. I have done some rather timid streaking in my time after a win or two, but always with the help of beer as a moral ice breaker. I hope this face fire thing does not catch on. Did I mention he was 36?
What was the worst bet you ever made?
The Black Madam finally is going to jail for murder! Her butt injections finally landed her in hot water for her “pumping parties”, as well as her promoting prostitution back in the 90s. One of the most controversial figures in the Philadelphia landscape, she would charge $1000 for injections to enhance the backsides of willing participants. Did I mention her day job was a singer, dancer and entertainer? As plastic surgery continues to grow in popularity, Americans are looking for medicine to make them feel better about their physical image. Whatever happened to the Miami Beach diet?
Would you ever consider plastic surgery if it was safe?
