In an interview with the Spanish Plauge shortly before he passed away, he revealed most of them sucked, especially the French, which is why they never got the games in his time.
-I hated them. Always bragging about their wine and bla bla bla bla bla. This is a sporting event. Cut the haute couture. We`re not putting on a fashion show here. It`s not a special interest event like the French Cinema. It`s the bloddy Olympics!
-The only thing I wish people understood is that bribes is absolutely crucial to selecting the host nation. If they can`t make us happy, how can they please the world? It takes money. And courage. If you got the balls to do that, we know your up for the task.
-You know, we can`t hold this game in a backyard. It`s not the toilet games or the development games. It`s the Olympics, bitch.
