So Sale and Pelletier got their golds after all. I suppose it didn't hurt that they are attractive, white, and North American? Can anyone honestly say that the media outcry would have been the same if S&P had been, say, Korean or Japanese??
This is figure skating we're talking about here, kids. Any activity that requires spandex and sequins shouldn't be considered a sport- much less an Olympic sport. Give them a stick and a puck- THEN you've got a sport. I wonder if S&P could throw a decent hip check??
In the States, these are some of the most watched Olympic games ever. Yet, I don't know a single person really interested in them. Even with as big an event as the Olympics, it takes a scandal to get anyone to really care.
