$1 BILLION?!?! Wow.

Well, I think it was cool that GM had the US Olympic team sponsorship going, but at that price I can understand letting it go.

Let's hope another American company picks it up!

Nothing wrong with supporting these types of causes when you have nothing to worry about financially, but when your struggling, good call GM. Nobody sees you any different.
