Agree with this. I'm not expecting much and won't be disappointed.

We don't typically do well at the Summer Olympics.

The IOC has succeeded in me losing interest in this event anyway. That, and most cities hosting these events end up with a boondoggle and would be better off attending to civic/national problems rather than spending $ on Olympics.

I'll say one thing, I wouldn't dare go to London right now.
