Last February's anti-war demonstrations in Athens were among the more violent and inflamed reactions to America's behavior over Iraq. That should have been a clue to the seething ill feeling for this country.
Instead of lying low and shame-faced, 'Coal' displays the national cock-eyed grasp for any activity beyond these shores and thinks only of basking in some glittery reflection of the US' sporting success.
No more fitting comeuppance was delivered - what a splendid awakening. I'm only sorry it isn't receiving wider publicity round the country - that and regret that the demonstrators couldn't have held their fire 'til Co-Pow was actually preening in the stadium - and *then* letting fly with stentorian boos and hisses and whatever else your Yanni Grik comes up with on these occasions.
