It wasn't that long ago that the Olympics movement was so pure and commercial free. We all know how Jim Thorpe was striped of his medal just because he player semi-pro baseball, a sport not related to his medal at all. Okay, that was a long time ago. But Canadians still remember how the Russian hockey teams composed of full time hockey players who happened to be in the army kept beating the college players representing Canada. Now we see the Olympics logo on just about merchandise as long as they pay the license fee.
