    Surprisingly, most members of the US luge team are also on the figure skating team.

    The champion two-man luge team from Chwopfgnwpstan was disqualified after a protest was filed by the Italian team claiming that siamese twins were not in fact two men.

    Today's Olympic trivia question (two part question):

    Who were the first two men to attempt the two man luge and how much did they have to drink prior to their first run?

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    At the end of the run, #15's luge partner was unable to walk away inconspicuously until his couch brought a jacket to tie around his waste. He is still arguing for baggy sweat pants to become the standard uniform.

    In 2010, a new chapter in Winter Olympic sports will begin with the introduction of two man skeleton.

    Somewhat ironically, the two-man luge run is located on Torino's Montagna Rottodosso, or in a rough English translation... "Brokeback Mountain."

    1 Weekend at Bernies 3 - Tornino!

    2 Men's Interpretive Ice Dancing just didn't have enough ass-to-groin contact time for Peter. Thus, the two man luge was selected.
