"Then there’s Lyndsey (sic) Jacobellis, the snowboard-cross queen who blew a gold showboating for the crowd and then took a tumble within sight of the finish line. In one of several differing explanations she gave for the mishap, Ms. Jacobellis said she was just trying to show her enthusiasm for boarding. Perhaps she can convince the world and her sponsors that a silver medal is just as much fun and worth just as much as a gold.

"Given efforts like this it’s not difficult to see why, for many Americans, the Olympics are not something to get too excited about.

"Given the apparent lack of intensity by some of the competitors and the 'who cares?' attitude by some, it’s almost as if the Olympics are more 'about me' and 'having fun' than about giving it your all for the red, white and blue." -- 2.21.06, The Mountain Mail
