Is It Fair To Have Women Test Olympic Ski Jumps, But Not Let Them Compete?

I was interested to find out that before men compete in the Olympic ski jump competition and the Nordic combined, that women are testing out the hills for them. This is particularly noteworthy considering that women are barred from competing in these two events. And yet two women agreed to act as forerunners—the athletes that test out the jumps and runs to make sure conditions are optimal—in ski jumping this year. While these two ladies seem to be thrilled to be involved in the Olympics at all, other world-class female skiers are not cool with them participating and refused invitations to participate as forerunners because they believe it sends a message that it’s OK for women to watch from the sidelines. In fact, some female skiers were so upset about not being able to compete in 2012, that 15 of them filed a lawsuit in the Canadian courts. But the Supreme Court ruled against them. Keep reading »

Google Is All For Freedom Of Expression, Unless You’re Talking About CEO Eric Schmidt

Google CEO Eric Schmidt is all for the free sharing of information on the interwebs … unless it’s about his love life. When his former mistress Kate Bohner (a former CNBC correspondent and journalist) started a Blogspot diary and book project entitled “Recovery Girl 007,” Schmidt made it disappear from Google by threatening Bohner with legal action. Abuse of power? I think so. Like any other recovering addict/mistress, Bohner should have the right to blog about her life and Schmidt (code name “Dr. Strangelove”) as long as she doesn’t use his real name. The blog is no longer accessible, but reports claim that it was primarily focused on her recovery and not her affair with Schmidt. Why didn’t he just ask her to stop writing about him? Did he have to pull the entire blog? This seems like a violation of rights to me. If Bohner does decide to fight back against the Google empire, I think she may have a case. What do you think?

Pole Dancing And Other Sports That Lobbied To Be Part Of The 2012 Olympics

If you have been scratching your head trying to figure out the finer points of curling, perhaps you’d be more interested in watching Olympic pole dancers compete for the gold? This is not a joke … competitive pole dancers are lobbying for a spot in the 2012 Olympics. Due to rapid national and international growth, these moves once relegated to seedy strip joints are now being recognized as an up-and-coming athletic event. Shut up! I wonder what the costumes would look like? No doubt they would take their cues from the figure skaters. I’m not so certain that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is quite ready to say yes to lucite platform shoes and tassels quite yet, but hey, if they did, it would certainly be interesting. After the jump, some more sports that think they deserve a spot in the Olympics. Keep reading »

What Your Favorite Ice Dancing Team Says About You

Tonight brings the conclusion of my favorite sport in the Winter Olympics, ice dancing. I love everything about ice dancing—the flashy costumes, the cheesy music, the ballroom dance moves done on skates, the faux emotion. So are you rooting for Belbin and Augusto? Domnina and Shabalin? Davis and White? I’ve come up with this theory that your fave team says a lot about your personality. Keep reading »

Have You Seen Boner Stabone?

If you are a good child of the ’80s, you’ll remember Boner Stabone as the bad news next-door neighbor of the Seavers on “Growing Pains.” (Seriously, how did they get away with calling him that?) On a somber note, Andrew Koenig, the actor who played Boner, disappeared in Vancouver, Canada, on Valentine’s Day. His parents and other celebrities are taking to Twitter to find him. They are concerned that Andrew’s life may be in danger due to his severe depression. He was last seen at burlesque star Jenny Magenta’s house on V-Day. He was supposed to return to his home in Hollywood on February 16, but his cell phone has been turned off and no one knows his whereabouts. He looks a little bit different now than he did in the ’80s, but if you’ve seen Boner, please Tweet. [Gawker] Keep reading »

This Dude Survived 30 Chick Flicks In 30 Days!

Nick Waters may be a superhero, as far as I’m concerned. This brave, 28-year-old Oklahoma boy survived watching 30 chick flicks in 30 days. The idea came to him last year when he and his wife, Nicci (Nick and Nicci … that’s a rom-com waiting to happen), were watching a garden-variety, painful chick flick together. Since he didn’t really get it (we don’t always either, Nick), he thought watching more was a surefire way to understand the opposite sex better. Nick took things a step further and decided to write about his experience on a blog, 30chickflicks.com. Keep reading »

Guys: If You See This Girl, Run In The Opposite Direction

Crystal Gail Mangum really knows how to stir up trouble. In case you don’t remember her, she is the stripper who falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of rape back in 2006. Yeah … rape is not really the kind of thing to lie about. The case caused such a stir that the Durham District Attorney lost his job over it. Apparently Crystal didn’t learn her lesson, because she is in trouble with the law yet again. And this time it’s for the attempted murder of her boyfriend. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Meeting Up With My Ex Was Therapeutic

Meeting up with an ex

I was in Brooklyn exactly one block from David’s* apartment with about one hour to spare. I knew what I had to do. I sent a text before I had too much time to think about it: “I’m in your hood. Have an hour to kill. Drink?” I got a queasy feeling in my stomach. It had been almost two years since the last time I’d seen him … Keep reading »
