The headline
There is a picture of a couple of ice dancers falling over each other, the headline says

More Crashes
Than NASCAR


That is as may be, but little skater girls don't burst into flame when they hit a wall. With the way that this country seems to be right now, if they did maybe more folks would be watching the Olympics.

I dunno... that could be fairly impressive... Like if they were coated in nitroglyceryn. Handle them a bit too roughly, drop them, whatever *BOOM*, we need a zamboni crew to fill the crater.

Of course the look on that Italian dancers face after she got dropped could have burned holes through her partner causing him to spontaneously combust. That would have been cool as well. or hot... well you know what I mean.

BTW... where is a good place to send you good spam mail I've recieved?

I can't think of many Olympic sports (or sports of any caliber, for that matter) that wouldn't be improved by the random placement of low-yield explosives onto the playing surface.

Or even contact explosives... slide your rock into theirs and both explode leaving craters... try to curl around that....

Add to that you are never sure which are going to explode, makes the job of the person with the broom much more interesting

To quote one of my friends... "There are very few problems that can't be solved by the liberal use of high explosives"

I think the American TV watching audience gets more titillation from the after-event interview with the crying ice dancer being asked "how does it feel to know that you just blew the opportunity of a lifetime and let your country down?" than it would from watching her explode on the ice.
