Sochi 2014 is Vladimir Putin big party to show the world how great Russia is. Apparently it is the most expensive games in history and will get more expensive when the bills roll in for the security. Primarily the security is about keeping the various separatist from using the games as a platform for their religious agenda and blowing themselves up, so they can go to heaven and have 76 virgins.
Russia will probably sort the terrorist out, but will the Russians sort out the anti-homophobia campaigners out?
Sochi could not be any more gayer. So chi (as in ”….Putin is so chi….”)could almost be a gay slogan and with all the anti-gay laws being implemented in Russia the games is the perfect place for peaceful protest. What the police and security forces will do will be very interesting, and, with the whole world watching, it will be funny to see how they handle the protesters.
As for the game, well The Magical Tipster will be looking for value and he is doing his research on the various events. However, one note of caution, Russia has been the home of some spectacular betting scams so tread carefully especially in the team sports.
