A bear can halt the Olympics, Covid can't.

There was this bear called "Meatball" in LA, so called as he'd broken into some guy's garage freezer and eaten a whole package of Costco meatballs. Animal control relocated him back to the mountains, but he returned, so they relocated him deep into the mountains, but he returned. So they relocated him to a sanctuary in San Diego, where he can have all the meatballs he wants. That's the way to take care of wayward bears - not shooting them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3pb9uHmARY

How Funny, No Cheering, Not enough audience so the bear thought he needs to bring a charm to the game.

. . . and the IOCLDPJOC didn’t have to wait on the WHO for their late information.
