Athens' modern Olympic ruins JUN 18 2010
Many of the stadiums and venues from the 2004 Athens Olympics are now lying abandoned, unused since the Games and symbolic of the disfunctional Greek economy.
Softball has no following in Greece, and the construction of a permanent softball stadium hasn't changed that. [...] Greeks like sports, but they like smoking more.
A city "winning" the right to host the Olympic Games seems like buying a pig in a poke.
