At least there different. How many different ways can you design a medallion?

Hey Bryant, DUH, Sweeden, Norway, Finland, and all the other godforsaken frozen places produce most of the athletes that compete in these kind of sports.

Yea, i thought the same thing...what a dipshit he was for saying that crap. Facts are facts: not many blacks live in mountainous US states and in cold weather European countries. Hey Gumble, last time I checked, there arnt many NBA players from the mountains of Colorado, Norway and Sweden...get over yourself.

Was thinking the exact thing here. Big shock people that are good at winter sports tend to be from mountain areas that have snow and ice.

Quote I got from newsvine:

"Finally, tonight, the Winter Games. Count me among those who don’t care about them and won’t watch them ... Because they’re so trying ... Like, try not to be incredulous when someone attempts to link these games to those of the ancient Greeks who never heard of skating or skiing. So try not to laugh when someone says these are the world’s greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention. Try not to point out that something’s not really a sport if a pseudo-athlete waits in what’s called a kiss-and-cry area, while some panel of subjective judges decides who won ... So if only to hasten the arrival of the day they’re done, when we can move on to March Madness — for God’s sake, let the games begin."

My lilly white ass can't possibly go on another day with punks like him in the world.

I enjoy his show when I have seen it. Just that it was fairly ignorent comment in what it implies.

Also for some reason bashing the winter games seems trendy this year for some reason.

Thanks.

I never liked Gumbel. Nice to see him sticking a foot in his mouth yet again.

Perhaps it's because we're getting our $#it pushed in and our best athletes refuse to play for national pride alone...

I actually think they are pretty cute. Certainly the best looking medals in the last 8 years.

Because they're boring and overhyped.

I really don't understand this reference. I like watching the Downhill, Slalom, SuperG, speed skating, snowboarding. I just thought the medals were ugly.

Gumble made a racist comment about the lack of appeal of the Olympics to blacks....basically dissed the whole winter Olympic crap.

Gumble was simply seeking some street cred. It's no different from a rapper getting grazed in a driveby. I can't hold that against him - can I?

Bet. Gumble won't get in trouble of his comments

Medals seem to have a modern look, after all it is 2006.

What's modern about having a hole in the middle?

What you cannot see from the picture is how huge they are, they are like a saucer from a coffee cup set. Heck the hole in the middle is almost as big as the entire medals of years past were.
