Sorry if my use of this headline gets the blog closed down, Bryan. Apparently it infringes the IOC's protected brand - as an unfortunate children's author found out when he titled his latest yarn this. The IOC came down on him and his publishers like a ton of bricks, threatening legal action to get the book withdrawn. They only backed down when the media got interested - and then only on the grounds that it had sold so few copies. So presumably if we all go and buy it, they'll pounce again... The first fags I ever bought (as a fresh-faced 9-yr-old lad) were called Olympic. Innocent times.
