Swedish curler Glenn Ikonen in 2010 Paralympic drug scandal

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Oh, this is sad. He's going down in history, all right, but not for representing his country at the Paralympic Games. Instead, Glenn Ikonen, vice-skip of the Swedish curling team has found sudden, worldwide fame for being the first and so far only 2010 Olympic OR Paralympic athlete removed from competition [...]

Why Norway wins big in the Winter Olympics

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
During last night's Winter Games closing ceremony—sometime after William Shatner and before we muted the set during the frightening number featuring the nightmarish giant beaver—household discussion turned to the overall medals standings. (As it does.) Obviously, the United States did well over the last two weeks, raking in 37 shiny [...]

Siberia is about to become the new home and training grounds for a bunch of Olympic athletes that didn’t quite deliver at the winter games as planned. Mother Russia is pissed…and it’s not nice to tick off Mother Russia. In a reenactment of the good old days of Soviet Union dominance in [...]

Nickelback ruined Canada's Olympics

Oh Canada, you nearly had it all. You won the gold in hockey. Well done. And you finished with, by far, the most golds at the Winter Games. Yup, these were good games. Nothing could ruin it, nothing. Except for Nickelback. What were you thinking, Canada? You had a positively star-studded line-up for the [...]

Let the Team Canada women drink beer!

Rather than focusing on the sport, some media outlets this morning chose to create or flame a controversy apparently started by reporters - including an AP reporter who took photos to the IOC. The Canadian women's hockey team wins an Olympic gold medal - but instead some of the headlines say: [...]

The Olympics: The alcohol of the national soul

It is the late, great Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,  whom the Winter Olympics Games in Vancouver keep reminding me of. "Every country is like a particular type of person. America is like a belligerent, adolescent boy, Canada is like an intelligent, 35 year old woman,” [...]

I spent a total of four hours in Vancouver, just to say I went to the Winter Olympics! Traveling north via the Amtrak Cascades from Seattle (a four-hour trip), the weather wasn't as welcoming as the first 11 days of the Winter Games. Spring-like weather had switched to grey skies and [...]

Plushenko's platinum delusion

On Monday, Yahoo! News reported that Evgeni Plushenko, who took gold in men's sniveling at Vancouver last week, was actually feeling all better because he had simply changed his frame of reference: he gave himself a platinum medal. That's right. To all of you watching his immaculate performance thinking he had [...]
