Twitter Doesn't Care about the new Canadian Men's Olympic Hockey Team Captain Announcement - Sorry Sidney Crosby #Sochi



It appears that Team Crosby isn't exciting news in Twitterland. With the #Sochi Olympics starting next month there is lots of pre-games coverage and announcements.

CBC has lots on the go in January. Wow. I get cold just reading the listing.

When you think of the Olympics you also think about Russia of course. There is a lot of talk about Russian anti - gay laws and the whether athletes and volunteers should be concerned for their legal safety. I find it very hard to believe that such laws can exist in 2014. It is scary to think we live in a world that still allows this type of discrimination.  Putin suggesting that homosexuals are safe but should stay away from children....... REALLY? This blows my mind. India has also reinstated old outdated laws in the same year as well.... what is going on? 

Have we gone back a century?

Hopefully Sochi Olympic Athletes will figure out a way to champion why discrimination is wrong - making them hero's in both sport and modern morality.
