Our Olympic Athletes Can’t Get Coffee?

I just can’t believe this. Oh my God! No frickin’ java for our Olympic athletes? Well, even though it’s hard to take in, this incredible story is true. I’ve found Mother Jones to be a reliable source of news on the internet. And it’s  Mother Jones that came up with this mind-blowing scoop. I can’t face the morning without at least one scoop.

It seems that Coca-Cola is the villan here. You can get lots of Coke at the games; but not one cup o’ Joe. Not a good state of affairs. If I were one of our intrepid olympians, I wouldn’t stand for it.

To get the complete low-down, follow this link.

Someone needs to notify the American contact for the I.O.C. right now! It’s time to kick some ass! God, this kind of thing sets me off!

Well, I’ve got to end this rant and get percolating; if I don’t get my second cup, I’m gonna hurt somebody!
