Usain Bolt and Dan Wetzel good, Jacques Rogge bad

I highly suggest Dan Wetzel's column on Usain Bolt and the IOC, link here.  Best short sports piece I've read in a long time.  Any article that contains the phrase "slap around like rag dolls" is bound to be readable.

"All the powerful nations — including the United States — have carte blanche at the Games. They can pout and preen, cheat, throw bean balls, file wild complaints, break promises that got them a host bid, whatever they want. They can take turns slapping Rogge and his cronies around like rag dolls as long as the dinner with a good wine list gets paid. .."

Apparently some of the sports columnists are still allowed to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted.  Now if we could only let that seep into the front page...
