I don't mean this to sound reactive or troll-y, but I just can't bring myself to support the Olympics in China. I won't watch a second of the games on purpose. Maybe that makes me a backwards sort of person, or anti-athlete, or whatever. China's growing human rights issues, environmental concerns, information restriction, Tibet struggles, etc. just seem to be already overshadowing the goal of competition. I'm not calling for a 1980's type boycott, because to each his/her own. It's just not for me.

I do have hopes that the "spotlight," that these games bring to the host city will work both ways.
