Did you know: The first Winter Olympics in Chamonix, France, cost less than $28 million in today's dollars, according to Yahoo.com. American Anders Haugen was the first American skier to medal at the Olympics, but he didn't receive his award until after a mathematical error was discovered — some 50 years later.

This entire article is wrong. The Olympics IS and is supposed to be about the spirit of competition, the unity of all. To publicize and divide us into US vs Them is wrong. I don't truly care whether the Russians, or Swedes, or Canada, or the US wins MORE medals. I DO want to see great and wonderful competition from all, and an opportunity to heal the world,,,, not divide it into more and many little pieces. The Olympics are supposed to be about coming together, the Afghan, the Kiwi, and the Canadian, all sharing the podium,,, hopefully, all sharing a beer in the pub afterward. That IS what the Olympics were meant for. All of us, and a beer in the pub afterwards.

It is just plain wrong to degrade it to nationalistic shoe goo.

There is no such thing as 'THEY', there is only 'WE".
