It is worth it if you love the Olympics. You will have fun reminiscing over the 1904 Summer Olympics, or more correctly, the Games of the III Olympiad.

A few simple and ‘easy to follow’ guidelines though can help you untangle the mess and should get you started on the way to cleanliness that is more or less close to godliness!
