Stupidity unmasked would be a good way of describing recent Freedom Day marches.
Last week I discussed how life is a results driven game, in the context of repairing a faulty door knob.
This week, as Olympic fever takes hold, it's all about avoiding being infected by knobs as you try and work out which sport you're going to stream on the Channel 7 app.
Otherwise you might have to watch free to air, and there's only so much Bruce McAveney a person can cop before they stop feeling special. Legend that he is.
The Tokyo Games have certainly kicked in though, and it's never been clearer how unnecessary a stadium is to run a major sporting event. I hope Brisbane is taking note.
It's also clear Covid Freedom Day marchers don't know what they're talking about.
The Lizard People who allegedly run the world haven't launched the global Covid pandemic to curtail our freedoms. They have obviously launched it to lock us down at home so we stay glued to the Games. And who said the Lizard People were nasty and evil?
Truth be told, I'd have tuned into the Olympics without a pandemic.
I do so every four years, and have done since way before John Coates took to mansplaining state premiers on global TV.
Maybe it is the Lizard People controlling my mind - and his - I don't know, but bingeing the Games has proved a good distraction from those Freedom Day marchers.
Now there's some genuine GOATs.
Best line I heard on their protest came from Adam Hills, who said gathering unmasked in numbers to condemn the impact of covid lockdowns on your personal freedoms was like refusing to turn your light off at night in London during the blitz because you didn't like being told what to do.
Maybe another way of putting it would be to say, gathering in numbers unmasked to complain about how your freedom to attend funerals is being restricted is like gathering in numbers unmasked to complain about those funerals that you're causing.
I'm not sure that message is getting through, though, and it will be interesting to see what happens this weekend.
There's a fine line between failure and success, as any government trying to curb the spread of Delta will tell you.
There's also fine line between success and failure at the Olympics, as any government in Japan trying to curb the spread of Delta will tell you. Sorry, I meant, as any fan will tell you. See Titmus v Fox, our hockey teams v our soccer teams, the Opening Ceremony v the start of the men's triathlon.
Someone wins, nearly everybody else doesn't, and it's important in these moments to remember you're the same person, with or without a gold medal, as that person who's trying to win one. Only minus the talent, sacrifice and years of training.
Hopefully Freedom Day marchers take that on board and chill this weekend watching the Games until we get this current outbreak under control.
That'd be a true gold medal effort.
