Watching the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, I'm seeing commercials with Olympic athletes who, according to disclaimers at the bottom of the screen, don't even use the products they're endorsing.
Why do I feel I've seen this all before?
In my "Secret Origin of Booster Gold" interview with Dan Jurgens, Booster's creator describes his inspiration this way:
Much of Booster was inspired by the '84 Olympics when I saw an athlete described as having an endorsement contract without ever having won a medal. Many of the BG ideas were already in place but that sort of galvanized it.
The years might roll by, but Booster Gold and the forces of commercial opportunism and social insecurity that drive him and his misadventures are as relevant as ever.

Given Booster's reputation with the ladies, Booster Gold must have made up half the audience at that first performance of Romeo and Juliet.

I think "downhill" is the best way to summarize Booster's experiences in the New 52.

Before the game this past Sunday, all the talking heads wanted to discuss Peyton Manning's legacy. Sure, Peyton had a bad game, but at least he wasn't gambling on the Seahawks. If Booster Gold can bounce back, I think there may be hope for this Peyton Manning guy.

Two years ago, I asked which Olympic summer games event Booster Gold would be best in. Now that winter is here, I ask again.

Like Justice League International, the Olympics are now over. But like Justice League International, they'll be back.

One thing that will never be back is Joe Kubert. When Kubert died earlier this week, the world lost one of its great artists. Kubert's passing denies us the opportunity of seeing his interpretation of Booster Gold. I'm sure his Skeets would have looked amazing.
