Olympics

In this episode of the Red Eye Report, we talk about the Olympics. Were the original Olympic Games like what we see on TV today? How about all of the ceremonial stuff? Where did all of that come from? What are some obscure games that aren’t included anymore? We answer all of those questions, review Coming to America, and listen to Ashtray bitch about a dog eating his glasses.
