Winters Olympics Hot Reads....The Best Of The Best
The INDIANAPOLIS STAR's Bob Kravitz writes if the NHL is "seriously considering yanking their players from further Olympic competitions, it should take a second look at the tape" of yesterday's U.S.-Russia game and "seriously reconsider." But the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES' Mark Lazerus wrote while the league "has not closed the door" on participating in the '18 Games, it "seems increasingly likely that this is the last hurrah for the NHL and the Olympics."
The N.Y. TIMES' Claire Martin profiles Boston-based Global Rescue, the company that since '06 has worked with the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association on "high-stakes rescue work." The company since its founding a decade ago has "used military veterans to help innovate within the field of medical and security-related evacuations."
- With the Sochi Games, Russia is "keen to put a friendlier face on its customer service."
- Exorbitant spending in Sochi has seemingly failed to trickle down to nearby citizens.
