    Frankly, I'm surprised so few athletes, not only Russians, are caught doping. An article from todays Pittsburgh paper: http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/g...s/201802250088

    The stakes are too high for Olympians, and professional athletes as well as elite college amateurs to ignore the boost a chemical may provide. I've simply become too jaded to believe almost everyone is on the up and up. The athletes themselves do nothing but reinforce my belief.

    Regards,
    Dennis

    Team USA Wins 1st Curling Gold Medal

    Hey! I'm impressed that our boys got gold in curling. It's still an unknown sport in the US but has been getting more and more attention.
    Don't mistaken attention with popularity though, most don't seem to care for it.

    And yet that view still does not sweeten the bitter taste of silver . . . .
