Olympic oddities

Well, the Winter Olympics are off and running. We had Sofia Loren, Susan Sarandon, and Yoko Ono in the opening ceremonies. I hear Yoko has been seriously considering a comeback in the biathalon. The African women carrying the flag outnumbered African women competing in the games, but we do have the Australian skeleton team. Hmmm...they're probably not going to do too well. Nor the skiers from Senegal.

Living in Minnesota, we do have the special thrill of the Bemidji men and women's curling teams representing the US. The olympic trials in Duluth were impressive. I'm told.

Who do I complain to about the lack of cross-country and biathalon coverage though? I remember not seeing enough modern pent at the summer games as well...
