These Olympic Stands Sure Are Full
Yeah, this is somewhat of a cheap shot, or shots, I guess. During the above photo, it was raining lightly in the ninth inning of a U.S. rout over the Netherlands. We had already sat through a rain delay of well over an hour. But it wasn't really that full before the rain started, and when I snapped this photo it was hardly raining at all. And probably one-third of the people pictured were related to U.S. players.
The bottom photo was taken midway through the fourth quarter of an Australia rout over Iran. Iran vs. Australia in hoops is probably not a marquee ticket, even in a close game, much less a 40-point Aussie demolition. And some of these seats are reserved for members of the "Olympic family," which means they're not actually sold as seats.
So, there's that. And tell me I'm being unfair. But still, I went to two sporting events thus far at today's sold-out Olympics, and this is what I saw.
