First off, the question of the day: Did anyone ever notice that during medal cermonies, the flag for the silver medalist is raised opposite the bronze medalist and vice versa?
Now on to the interesting stuff.
Just saw this quote on CNN. It's apparently from the Russian newspaper Pravda and is offering its opinion about the Olympics so far:
"The utter incapacity of this country to host a major international event, due to its inferiority complex, [is] born of a trauma being the skinny and weakling bro to a beefy United States and a colonial outpost to the United Kingdom."
Huh. I guess the 29 medals the Soviet Union won in 1988 and the 125 they won in 1976 were all won by Belarusians, Ukranians, and Georgians.
For the record, here is a picture of a Cossack glove...
And the above quote was the sound of it hitting the floor. I've always wondered what that sounded like.
I'd love to see Evgeny Plushenko on Dancing with the Stars. And I cannot wait for Sochi.
