Well folks, your complaining has finally paid off.
The U.S. Olympic Committee — recipient of millions in taxpayer money from the city of Colorado Springs, much to many residents' dismay — has decided to throw you a party.
Yep. They get over $30 million. You get a party.
So, uh, anyway, put on your dancing shoes, here are the details:
The USOC will pay tribute to its hometown Colorado Springs and to Olympic Day with a Community Appreciation Day Celebration on Saturday, June 26 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This free community event taking place at the Olympic Training Center and Boulder Park and will feature: autograph sessions with 2010 U.S. Olympic Team medalists and other USOTC Olympic and Paralympic resident athletes; live sport demonstrations featuring different sports including BMX, freestyle skiing aerialists, fencing, wrestling tennis and taekwondo; the Tyson Fitness Challenge Zone; the opportunity to take the U.S. Olympic 5-Ring Challenge at the 24 Hour Fitness booth; a live band; free Coca-Cola in special commemorative aluminum bottles and Coca-Cola Olympic tee shirts; prize giveaways; popcorn; balloons and face-painting; and a U.S. Olympic merchandise sale.
