2006 Winter Olympics Reported Ended

Bode Miller completed a raucous 0-fer, winning zero medals in five events. Buy his t-shirts on discount at

Scott Baird, 54, became the oldest Winter Olympian ever. He "competes" in the "sport" of curling and looks like my father. He still isn't the oldest Olympian ever. That honor goes to Sweden's Oscar Swahn, 72.

The Winter Olympics entered the digital age by awarding medals that resemble large compact disks. Actually they look more like laser disks. Remember those things? The Winter Olympics entered have entered the 80s!

My notes end there.
