Olympics today

Feb 12, 2014

In a Washington Post column, you can read about Shaun White, Olympic moments, and mettle without a color. Cindy Boren there pointed out, “Shaun White scored a gold in humanity on Tuesday, @MikeWiseguy has the story.” Bob Collins from Minnesota Public Radio added, “The part of the story that is particularly intriguing: Reporters pre-writing their story lines.”

But according to Slate, Snowboarders HATE Shaun White.

Brian Costa at the Wall Street Journal writes that Russia's Ban on Alcohol in Sochi Arenas Leaves Drinkers Flat. Lou Dubois at NBC News shared this quote from the story: "Russia, whose most famous export may be vodka, is staging the driest Olympics in memory." Andrews Weiss added another: "Who wants to watch curling sober? No one. I'll tell you that right now."

But if you’re Canadian, there’s a beer fridge you can open with your passport, according to TIME.
