The 2010 Olympics

Well...I won't be attending any events at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.
I naively thought in passing that I would like to attend the opening ceremonies.
The price of the tickets are $1300...almost an entire months salary. Other events are $750. This is ridiculous. Who can afford these prices? You might as well stay home and watch it on TV; you'll have a better view.

Obviously, The Olympics really have become a rich man's event. The tax payers of Canada paid for the most elitist sporting event of the decade... And, of course, the tax payers will not get the profits...
