After losing her pole: and having to stop uphill, Stefania Belmondo (Italy) won the gold in the 15 KM cross-country free style. Amazing in the fact in that she managed to recover and was just a breath away from Katerina Neumannova. Simply amazing, and suspenseful at the end.

Colorado To Pac-10

Mountain West plus Boise State plus what is going to be left of the Big 12 (maybe Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State, and could or could not be Missouri).

I can't imagine Missouri going to the Mountain West, I'm convinced they've got a deal elsewhere.

Worst case scenerio: Missouri + Texas schools leave, the remaining get folded into the Mountain West. Kansas becomes the Memphis of the division. Recruiting is hurt as is the ability to pay and retain coaches like Bill Self. The Border War rivalry disappears, and I can't really see any sort of meaningful rivalry developing in the Mountain West. This is from a basketball team who had a large portion of their regular season games getting ESPN broadcasts. I can't see anyone tuning into see KU v Brigham Young.

It is not as if Kansas' football program is that bad, they won the Orange Bowl in 2008. Damn all those Texas schools. There's a couple of scenarios where Kansas and KState could end up in the Pac-10/16, though I really, really doubt it.

There's some collateral damage too. Kansas City built the Sprint Center for the Big 12 tournament. It was questionable whether or not it was needed (it wasn't), but having such a nice, new facility used only to host the occasional Miley Cyrus concert is sad.

Stupid worthless non-sport's governing body to eat its young next month.

I have a feeling that ice skating isn't as subjective as you make it out to be. As the moz pointed out, the strike zone seems subjective to those who don't know the official rules (what is it? between the elbows and the knees?)

Where's the debate?

Actually, yesterday I was trying to find out the cities who bid for the olympics in any given year. Does anyone know about where I could find that? I had some success finding the cities in recent years but not anything earlier then say the Atlanta olympics.

On a different note, where's the place where the cool kids get their Olympic info? The official MSNBCCCPLMNOP one is crap.

Ugh, all you 100 plussers can do is complain.

The Lennox Lewis-Mike Tyson fight has the blessing of the World Boxing Council

Tyson is dangerous. He should really be locked up, but man... I can't wait to see this.
