My thoughts on short track speed skating

Ah, another Winter
Olympics and another chance for NBC to not-so-subtly use short track
speed skating and racism to boost network ratings. We all love Apollo
Ohno, but would we admit we like the fact that he is beating somebody
from Korea and China even better? And would we like it so much if he
was, say, beating somebody from England? Bode Miller is right – the
Olympics divide more than they bring together.
