Cold War yearnings
Forget who has the most nukes. Disregard who has the biggest rocket. Russia is incensed that their Golden Boy figure skater was reduced to an Olympic Silver Medal.
Russia's skater called the USA's [Gold Medal] skater just a "dancer," which is fighting words on the ice.
The point of contention was that he didn't do the fabled, celestial mechanics in figure skating, known as "the Quad." He did do multiple, perfectly executed, measley "triples."
Vladimir Putin has weighed in with no less than a Black Belt backing him up. Oh well, if there is going to be another Cold War, why not over something as important as the goings-on on ice.
