    Some company is going to get paid a BOATLOAD to clean up that bay enough to make it look nice on TV.

    Mike and Mike covered it today again. Kudos for them to continue to keep on this. They were showing footage of the water where it the rowing is going to be held and it is beyond disgusting. Greeny said he is going to keep harping on it. Good for him because this whole situation is criminal. I cannot figure out who is worse...the guys running FIFA or the IOC???

    IOC has a longer history. That is about the only reason.

    Or...they won't show sailing or rowing and focus on female beach volleyball. If I am going to be duped and lied to, at least put something interesting on TV.
