Development in Boston is like olympic gymnastics....

Posted by Michael DiMella on Tue, Aug 19, 2008

I was watching the Olympics last night and was once again startled by the fact that nobody can agree who the winner should be in gymnastics.  The commentators were bashing the judges for choosing the Chinese girl (who is actually 7 1/2 years old!) over the American (who is actually Russian!) in the uneven bars.  It just exemplifies how silly any sport that requires a judge to decide the winner can become.  Nothing against the talented athletes and all their hard work to get to that level, but any time you put the decision of a winner into a judge's hand instead of the athletes themselves, the process can and will easily be unfair.  It becomes a subjective decision no matter what.  Kind of reminds me of the development process in Boston.
