He is there on assignment. He has real research to do. And he loves the Games and all they represent. But it’s his celebratory company that makes his trip the more memorable.Drinking beers on La Rambla with Charles Barkely, carousing the Joan Miró museum with Michael Jordan, and getting out at night with other ‘Dream Teamers’ are some of the highlights of Professor Properties’ Barcelonan tour.But upon returning to his living quarters within the Olympic Village on the final night of his stay, British discovers there has been a botched bomb attempt within the Olympic Village. He must seek accommodations elsewhere, and is finally led to a mansion on the outskirts of Barcelona owned by the International Olympic Committee. There he witnesses a vulgarity of pomp and behavior that ‘makes his stomach turn.’ He feels compelled to blow the whistle on the organizers of the Games and damage the very institution he had so much respected.William Olson is the author of Right on Time and the short stories of British Properties, Naag Devta, The Blue Eminem, and Lifafa Death.
