To me, the Olympics are just as much about the fans who travel across the world, sport the silly hats, and are wrapped head to toe in their home nation's flag for the mere experience of cheering on their countrymen.
If you want to see the end of journalism...start here. All it takes is a English failed musician who lives and writes f...
At the risk of knocking the US off its pedestal, I wanted to develop a weighted medal count. I also wanted its abbreviation to be COSTAS. I admit that the latter requirement came first.
Given the outrageous obesity and diabetes issues plaguing many Western nation, the last thing we need is fat kids feeling OK with their fries because they believe Shaun White lives on crap too.

I guess it's not surprising that Colbert made a point that much of the NBC coverage of the 2010 Winter Olympics has failed to broach: that stereotypes of Canada don't necessarily apply to Vancouver.
American bobsledders once ruled the bobsled world, but now U.S. men have not won Olympic bobsled gold since 1948. With Holcomb as a favorite, there's a fair chance that could change this weekend.
Evan Lysacek may have won the Gold Medal for Men's Figure Skating in this year's Winter Olympics but Johnny Weir has won my heart. Even though he ska...
