I'm a huge Olympics fan. Athletes no longer "win" medals, they "podium". The PC Police are running amok. No one ever wins these days because that implies other people lost. We are all "winners" these days.

Snake, no one podiums in volleyball?

Astrid, other than the American track team that made complete asses of themselves in Sydney, I've never seen any athlete perform when they podium. Quite a few them cry, however.
