Despite Pound's statements, International Olympic Committee vice president Anita DeFrantz says she has not heard anything about the games being postponed.

"If that is the case, then you know more than a vice-president of the International Olympic Committee," she said, referencing Pound's announcement. "It would be news to me."

The IOC executive board reportedly spoke Sunday, but allegedly did not rule out starting the Olympics on time, the only thing not on the table was canceling the games completely. While they did discuss potentially postponing it, DeFrantz says no decision has been made.

I'm not sure how many people actually care other than this means that more shit will probably be cancelled, like Wimbledon, the Tour de France, and probably the US Open (tennis) and all of the golf majors... then things like preseason football.

And maybe the MLB, MLS seasons and possibly even college & NFL football.

The Olympics are such an afterthought that it's more symbolic than an actual loss.
