Olympic Medals

Category: Interesting Links,Randomness — Posted by Michael at 1223

The medals that will be given out at this year’s Olympics have a different look to them HTey are round like a doughnut with a hole in the center. I think the reasoning behind this is pretty cool. It’s represents the Italian tradition of having a piazza (or town square) in the center of each town.

You can see the design here and read an USA Today article about it as well.

NBC Olympics

Category: Interesting Links,Randomness — Posted by Michael at 1238

There are always a few websites that I stick on my dock during the duration of the Olympics. One of course is the official site for that year’s Olympics.

The other big one that I visit constantly during the games is www.nbcolympics.com. We all know that the Olympics are carried on NBC and all of its various networks, but the website is more than an advertisement for their coverage. It includes tons of great information including running medal counts, athlete info, sport info, venue info and much more. It’s an invaluable resource.

What a klutz!

Did you ever trip anf fall and feel like a fool? Well, I bet you can’t beat the guy who tripped on his shoelace, fell down a staircase at a museum and broke a bunch of priceless Chinese vases from the Qing Dynasty. Talk about a bad day!

Torino 2006 is coming

Category: Interesting Links,Randomness — Posted by Michael at 2340

Torino 2006You never really see me posting anything about sports in my blog, but it’s that time again. Sure, there’s some football game being played this weekend, but more importantly, the 2006 Winter Olympic Games start in a week. You probably already know that I have no particular interest in or use for sports, but the Olympics are different. First of all, they suport world unity, etc., which is always a good thing. Additionally, they are entertaining. You get to see those sports that you usually never get to see and they are fun sports to watch. They aren’t team sports, but instead more individual sports such as the luge, etc.

This will be the first of several posts over the coming weeks about this topic. Watch for more to come!

Check out the official site at www.torino2006.org.

Happy Groundhog Day!

Category: Interesting Links,Life — Posted by Michael at 0513

GroundhogThere are a lot of holidays, but one of the most fun ones in my opinion occurs today. By the time this post shows up on my site, Punxsutawney Phil won’t have made his forecast yet, but I’m hoping he sees his shadow so we can have some more winter weather!

In celebration of Groundhog Day, visit the official site at www.groundhog.org, and while you’re at it, you should go rent one of the best movies of all time, Groundhog Day.

One of these years I’ll make it out to Punxsutawney to see it in person! I’ve always wanted to be out there at Gobbler’s Knob in the freezing cold weather for the event. You have to go down there at about 3am. 🙂 And no, it’s not like it is in the movie. It’s actually not in the town center but on the outskirts and you have to either walk or take a shuttle bus. I of course would walk because I think it would add to the experience. 😉

UPDATE: Phil did see his shadow. More winter to come! Yay! CNN says so.
