Okay, did you guys get confused with some of the tv coverage of the Atlanta games? I did. I must admit I was quite excited when I thought that pipe bombing must be a new event. I practiced for that one quite a bit when I was a child. I mean I fully understand the penalties they were discussing for killing spectators. But one can’t really blame the sport for that. It just seemed a poor choice of venue. I expect there might even have been more deaths if they had chosen that spot for the javelin or shot-put.
I used to say that I couldn’t remember why we were so into the pipe bomb thing as teenagers. And then I remembered that we had some weird notion that somehow it would get us dates. Not that it did.
