    Does seem pretty lame to kick him out for this. He gets to keep the medal?

    Um, this is sports, where what is best (apparently) is to dangle the medal in front of your dick so some (drunk?) chick can simulate oral sex on your bronze. Kinda classless.

    Is this the kind of example we want set for our kids? It's the age of Facebook and Twitter and yada yada... Dude's gotta keep in mind that anyone anywhere can have a camera, and any photos taken are going to end up visible to everyone. It would be different if it was some little podunk competition somewhere, but this is the Olympics - an Olympic medal he's using as a simulated penis. Have a little class, when out in a crowd. You can do whatever you like in private.

    But it's a judgement call on what to do with him. And no one seems to be taking the medal away.

    From the amount of drugs up in Vancouver, I'd think this would be pretty groovy.

    I have no idea what you are even talking about Kevin, Here in the USA this has been taught as proper from the very top. Ever hear of one of our President's named Clinton?

    No he didn't. He's a snowboarder who's event is/was judged.

    Doesn't even compare to the timed events as far as athletics is concerned.

    Too funny, watching Universal Sports (instead of the friggin' paid advertising on KSL instead of olympic coverage. WTF?) today, they had Phil Mahre on. He made a comment at the end of the segment to the tune of "the olympics will be a lot better off when they get rid of judged events". The news person next to him sorta gasped and said, "but, what will we watch?" Phil shot back, "real athletes".

    Got a big chuckle out of it.

    I mean, come on, the guys a snowboarder...

    Har har...

    I do understand where you are coming from. Just disagree. My idea of "having class" is behaving in a way that others respect. There is a crucial difference between "expect" and "respect" mind you. I'm just saying "expecting" a 23 year old snowboarder to behave a certain way and upholding him to some morality yardstick is wrong. I've seen lots os pictures of my friends doing "body shots" Which are more riske' than anything this guy did. I don't respect them any less for having a good time or feel they are classless because they let loose once in a while and party. But I am surprised sometimes! The shy girl who takes her top off at Lake Powell. I wouldn't expect her to do that, but would never even think her classless for doing so... Ahh well I'm rambling, hehe.. Damn you Liberals for making me do that!

    Wow... See I would call that classless. Making fun of an Olympic event that people spend years and years of their life training for. And belittling their accomplishments... That's direspectful IMO. Complete 180 from 2 consenting adults at a party having fun. Must be the Libertarian in me who values individuals striving to accomplish goals and then succeeding. But I do agree that timed events are better instead of relying on human judges who are fallible. I will still watch those guys fly on a halfpipe any day over timed events though. I find them more graceful and amazing than any other olympic event.

    I almost let this go but can't... F everyone else? If these are seriously your feelings about us Libertarians, we need to talk. Seem a little bitter today my friend. :)

    Be careful what you wish for.

    Attempting to legislate good taste amounts to censorship. If you don't want to read it, don't buy the book.

    Personally, I think having brass balls hanging from your hitch receiver is rather tasteless along with all the decals featuring Calvin taking a whiz on Chevy, Ford, Dodge, Toyota, etc.

    I wouldn't dream of censoring them and I think this was likewise blown way out of proportion.
    seen all good people turn their heads each day so satisfied I'm on my way...

    What good is an olympic medal if you don't get to bang hot chicks for winning it?!?!?

    Kev and DC- All I can say is that I love you guys. I happen to agree more with Kev on this one but I love that Jacob (as always) has solid reasoning behind his stance. I do have to admit though that the Conan quotes were great

    Well said.

    I'm with the atheist on this one. It sets a bad example. However, the officials should have known better when they allowed snowboarding to be an olympic sport. They also should have known better when they allowed curling.

    This is the reason that Deer Valley and Alta don't allow snowboarders on their mountains. Way to go guys.

    I didn't watch the Olympics, but I go to their website.

    The purpose of the Olympic Movement is to (ar at least supposed to be):
