Evan Ward has completely ignored the fact that the Sochi games have been widely documented as the most corrupt games ever. Indeed, the games were little more than an excuse for Putin to hand out piles of money to political allies who have kept him in power.

It is surprising that Ward just pushed aside the inevitable corruption present in this left wing communist country. A few moments of entertainment cannot make up for the fact that the games were used to victimize the general population in order to line the pockets of Russian mobsters.

Would any reasonable person really wish this fate on the Brazillian people? The irrefutable answer is: No!

Another scary situation for Brazil is Sao Palo where there are seven million cars in that metro area. This is beyond gridlock. There are some serious infrastructure issues that will raise their ugly head and just as JCS noted above, how big of price will the common folk have to pay for these events to happen?
