Russia 5, United States 4

Something tells me there won’t be much call for a movie about this one in 20 years. On the other hand, Kurt Russell might need the work.

On today’s “Around The Horn” (which, by the way, isn’t half bad on satellite radio because you don’t have to look at Jay Marriotti). the Dallas Morning News’ Kevin Blackistone declared the Shani Davis/Chad Hendrick catfight to be the sort of drama that would have more black Americans watching the Winter Olympics than ever before. Blackistone predicted “WB-like ratings” for tonight’s highlights.

The sound you just heard was that of an NBC executive landing on the sidewalk.
