NEW YORK -- Apolo Ohno turned into Central Park to a wave of screams Sunday. Arms reached over barriers to clap, holler and hold signs for their friends, family, and for the familiar face under the bandanna.
BOSTON -- Forget the post-whistle shoving matches, the nasty cross-checking, finger-biting and calf-slashing antics.

Is there anything more frustrating for a sports fan than watching the Olympics? Every night I feel like I'm sitting down with a great book, and after I read the first 10 pages, I discover that pages 11 to 25 have been crossed out, and then I'm supposed to skip to page 102, and by the way, I inadvertently read the ending nine hours ago.
On Friday, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will choose the city that will host the 2016 Summer Olympics. Chicago, Madrid, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo, the four finalists, will each make a 45-minute presentation before the IOC members Friday afternoon in Copenhagen.
