An Open Letter to Bruce Jenner: Time for a Pan Am Transgender Tea Party

Neil FlaggRebel Blogger

Dear Bruce Jenner,

On behalf of the sports enthusiasts of Toronto, Ontario, and indeed all of Canada, I would like to congratulate you on coming out last week in your Very Special Interview with Diane Sawyer. We all knew already that you were turning yourself into a woman, but we were most pleased to learn that you are an open Republican.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of one of your greatest athletic achievements – your championship performance in Decathlon at the 1975 Pan Am Games in Mexico City, which put you on the path to Wheaties-Box superstardom the following summer with your Olympic Gold in Montreal.

You have certainly changed a lot since then, but the nature of the Pan Am Games has not. If you recall, those ’75 games were supposed to be held in Santiago, Chile. When the Marxist Allende government that won the rights to host the games was deposed in a 1973 coup, Pinochet’s right-wing counterrevolutionary junta told the Pan Am organizing committee to take its overpriced show elsewhere.

Brazil’s military dictatorship next gave it a shot, but was forced to withdraw its attempt to stage the games in Sao Paolo with less than a year to go, due to cost overruns and financial mismanagement. Mexico City became the final resting place of the 1975 games, thanks to its existing sports infrastructure left over from the 1968 Olympics.

Bruce - if I may still call you Bruce - we urge you to use your new transgender tea-party street cred to come to Toronto and make a truly bold statement. We would like you to stand erect at the entrance to the Rogers Centre, and denounce the immorality of the modern “Big Games” movement that takes the hard-earned fruits of every taxpayer’s labours, and hands it over to insiders, bureaucrats, diplomats, crony-capitalists and lobbyists, all in the name of sport.

We would like you to teach the world the lessons that were first taught in your heyday of the 1970s, with the financial fiasco of Montreal 1976 being the prime example - that the expense of these events always greatly outweighs the cost. With just 100 days to go and most of the $2.5 billion already having been spent, it may be too late to save Toronto, but you can always give hope to the good people of Lima, Peru, who have been placed on the hook for Pan Am 2019.

Bruce, we know you and your family have been accused of representing the “Panem et Circenses” downfall of the modern Western world with your reality-show career. However, we respect the fact that Keeping Up With The Kardashians has been a purely capitalist affair. Multi-billion-dollar taxpayer-bilking schemes are an entirely different story.

Use your newly-elevated public platform for good, Bruce. Cry out to the world: enough is enough, the international sports taxpayer-bilking scam must end now! This may be a job only an out-of-the-closet conservative superathlete can do.

Joan, you sure like taking everyone else’s inventory, don’t you? It must be nice being perfect.

In light of Bruce Jenner’s life altering admission, I have a confession to make. Sometimes, I self identify as a pregnant woman. I do it for the reserved parking. At least it’s not for the attention.

Neil – you ask Jenner to stand erect – haha, right?

Maurice, ugly is not a physical characteristic. It’s a personal trait. )-:

Oh Pleeeze!!! So he got a sex change, good for him, hope he’s happy. But, why is every liberal idiot on their hands and knees in adoration? What the f*** is wrong with people?

Nicolas R. Leave the Ford’s out of your comment There is no way the Fords would want to be linked to your comment. Or Anyone else I can think of for that matter.

I don’t hold it against Bruce, what ever makes him happy is okay with me, as long as I don’t have to pay for it , on any level.

My only comment: If and when Bruce gets his(her) naughty bits changed, she(he) will have raised the threshold level for women to meet to be classified as “ugly”.

Just another pathetic, washed out, publicity seeker like Michael Jackson. Prepared to make a living cartoon out of himself to catch some fading limelight. And, like Jackson, he will probably enjoy some kind of happy ending.

Nicolas, the only thing to say about your written (wroten) comment is TROLL and a bad one at that. You even forgot to misspell the same word both times.
I loved watching the interview, particularly when Jenner said he was no Obama fan and was a Republican, Diane Sawyer’s discomfort was palpable.
