I must confess that I'm not much of an Olympics fan. The Winter Olympics seem especially dull and uninteresting to me. While I used to enjoy skiing quite a bit, I found that being someplace warm, indoors, and with a gin & tonic in hand was much more fun than hurling myself down a snowy hill at dangerous speeds.

Even I, Olympics grinch that I am, got caught up in the Sasha Cohen story. Ramjac's post sums up a lot of my feelings. Cohen's fall was one of those heart wrenching sports moments. She did end up with the silver, but it still had to be disappointing to her. Maybe I missed this since I'm not an Olympics fan, but when did they replace the medals with CDs? "You didn't just win the gold medal, you sold one million records."

Figure skating has become a sport full of insane, Jackass-esque maneuvers. That's probably why it's one of the few Winter Olympics sports that holds my attention. The technical skill bar keeps getting raised and the athletes keep trying to top each other. It's hard not to be impressed by what people like Sasha Cohen do.I'm also impressed by that.


Yeah, I'd marry her right now.
