    So, is the idea "kids, eat fast food and be athletes"?

    Well, really, I don't think that's too far off of McDonald's being one of the official Olympic sponsors. [Which supposedly started, in part, because Janet Lynn, in an interview at either the '68 or '72 Olys, said that what she missed most about home was McD's hamburgers, so they ended up sending a bunch of them over to the US team, which led to Oly sponsorship several years later. Supposedly.]

    Oh, JonnyCoop, absolutely, I just have a big problem with the fast food industry (to me it ranks right up there with Philips Morris), and find it ironic when they capitalize on athletic events.
