The 4th Annual Finucane Games

Unless you have been living in a cave,
I'm sure everyone is aware that
the 4th annual FINUCANE GAMES
took place last weekend in Mechanicsburg, Pa.


Attendance at this years GAMES was down,
  
 an obvious boycott took place,
some faking illness,
while others actually went to the trouble of purchasing
a 3 bedroom house
and scheduling the "move"
on the date of THE GAMES.

This years games
were marred with cheating accusations by some


and the ever present doping accusations
the surround events such as these.

Below, a BALCO representative 
maps out a doping timeline of one of the athletes.


While some were blissfully unaware of the controversy,

others prepared for their events
with a more professional attitude.

The lack of real leadership 
in the FGCC
( Finucane Games Competition Committee) 
is to blame for the fact that no torch was lit this year,
so an emergency meeting was held
putting  in place a plan
for next years GAMES.

One of the talking points:
"Is bocce ball really too strenuous for today's participants?"

I'll keep you posted.

Such controversy! I guess it's not as bad as other major sports events.

I blame Pat for all of this

I'm convinced this is a conspiracy. The FGCC is being influenced by Rubin Amaro to 'do nothing' and to take a 'wait and see' attitude.

Can we blame this on the President too? Clearly there is a connection.

Hey, it's a four bedroom house! We're moving up! Also it has a pool. You're welcome to come take a dip any time! :). I hope the ex-host kept her germs to herself!

I remember this from last year. I am surprised you had any in attendance and even willing to play.
