Worst Ever Olympic Management?

I watch all the events on CTV-affiliated stations, so I of course see no hint of dissent or negative feeling about the overall performance of Vancouver as a host for this year's Olympics. But I have sure been wondering - a Georgian athlete dying in practice and then announcing it was his own damned fault, having to import Zambonis from Alberta, hopeless weather (sorry, no, I think the uncertainties here could have been better documented in the bid, though maybe they were), killing off general admission spectator tickets (so only the rich elite get to see the event). And a lot more.
The Wall Street Journal provides a nice summary here.
h/t Colby Cosh, whose views I am not sure I understand.
