Causing trouble already. Doesn't surprise me at all. Well, I hope they like Russian prison. I've heard it's awesome.

The eyes of the world are not on Sochi yet. Let see what happens when protests happen[and they will happen] durring the games with all the world to see.

I wonder what Putin the Great will do then. My guess...not a GDThing.

I feel sorry for the athletes that trained so hard to be able to go there and compete.
This event is for them, not a podium for protesting gay social issues.

Stop wasting security on the gay people and focus on the Muslims who have been blowing stuff up in the vicinity.

I would say a bomb is far more disrutive to the games than a rainbow flag...But that is just me.

When you host the games you'll get to set the priorities. Until then... sit back and enjoy the athletic competition, which is what the Olympics are all about, right?
