How Norway Outshone The Rest at the Olympics How absolutely absurd are the Winter Olympics? Dare I say you need to be some kind of crazy to participate or even attempt some of the events offered. I spent way too many hours in front of the TV screen in recent months deliberating the details of the Winter Olympic sporting codes. As a common sport fanatic, after watching a few hours of a single event, I turn into a professional myself and start coaching the competitors through the TV screen. Sportsmanship is the outward expression of the inward love and passion that you have for the game.
