Two days before the opening ceremonies for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, media have descended on Sochi like a plague of locusts. The majority of journalists are staying at the brand new Sochi Hotel, built specifically for the event, however, it is still under construction. I’m sure you can imagine the wave of complaints coming from what appear to be some rather sheltered — if not spoiled — Americans. (#FirstWorldProblems #NeverBeenOutsideTheCountry)

Even still, one has to wonder. Is Sochi ready for the Winter Olympics?

According to Moscow-based ABC News correspondent, Kirit Radia, no.

He gets a little right-to-complain given that he’s based in Russia…

But at the same time, we’ve seen over and over how ingenious — and fast — Russians can be, especially given it’s the eve of the Winter Olympics and the world’s eyes are on them.

You know they do this to increase advertising revenues, right?

Can't watch the Grammys because I'll get interested and miss the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead
