TV's 10 Most Memorable Winter Olympics Moments

Before Michelle Kwan was forced to bid a sad adieu to her gold-medal dreams... before Ted Ligety came from nowhere to win the alpine combined... and before the world had ever heard of a Flying Tomato, these Winter Olympians gave TV-viewers much to talk about and forever remember. 1. Heiden's Fantastic Five — Lake Placid 1980In the speed-skating equivalent of running — and winning — a sprint, a mile, a marathon and nearly everything in between, Eric Heiden achieved what fellow Olympian Dan Jansen calls "the single greatest feat in the history of sports." Hard to disagree. Looking more superhero than mere mortal in his skin-tight uniform, the thunder-thighed skating machine collected five individual gold medals, setting four Olympic records and smashing a world record in his last event, the grueling 10,000-meter race, by more than six seconds. His incredible accomplishment has never been duplicated. read more

Super Bowl XL In the interest...

Super Bowl XLIn the interest of full disclosure, I must confess up front that I'm a huge Seahawks fan. This isn't an easy experience as a) They have historically sucked and b) I live in Philly, roughly 3,000 miles from the next nearest Seahawks fan. So, without bias or prejudice, I now offer my take on the mockery of a travesty of a sham that history will record as Super Bowl XL After two weeks of hype, hours of pregame discussion and a visit to the animatronic Hall of Past Super Bowl MVPs (is it odd that Bart Starr looks younger than Mick Jagger?), it was time to start the game. The coin toss was a success on two fronts: The Seahawks won and Matt Hasselbeck didn't guarantee a victory. 1st Quarter: Al Michaels uses the NFL-mandated expression "Super Bowl XL is under way in Detroit" as the kickoff takes to the air, and I don't wa read more
