The USOC holds a number of events around N.Y. this morning to mark the countdown to February 12, while Polo Ralph Lauren and Nike formally unveil several official outfits for the U.S. squad. The sponsorship of the U.S. Speedskating team by the "Colbert Nation" also is drawing attention to the Olympic movement, as Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert reveals viewers have already donated $40,000 to the NGB. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking on the USOC's search for a new CEO, and regardless of the selection, it is apparent the new leader will need "more than 100 days to fix what's wrong" with the organization.
