Have you heard???
In the past hour or so Medvedev and Putin are calling for the Russian Olympic Committee to resign, and for the Russian coach(es) to also be fired due to Russia's overall lack of performance thus far.
Lysacek was extremely gracious about it in an interview about an hour ago. He's not only a class act on the ice, but off the ice as well.
There is an interesting article in today's New York Times about a family from New Jersey who have three children competing in this Olympics, but none of them for the U. S.
Two are competing for Japan. The third is competing for the Republic of Georgia.
I must admit, the Downhill and the Super G are my two favorite events at the Winter Olympics (although I like a lot of the other events too), and even though Bodie Miller (USA) took the bronze and the silver in the Downhill and Super G respectively this time, everything always seems to be anti-climatic since Franz Klammer's run in the Downhill at Innsbruch in 1976.
Anybody else ever see that one?
It seems to me that tensions have been very high between the 2 countries since Rocky Balboa beat Ivan Drago in 15 rounds back in 1986! ("Hit the one in the middle!")
On a serious note, would anyone else like to have a English version of the LXX that links to one of the Greek lexicons. (Like some NT?) Or, is this an option with a version that I am not aware of?
