A Toast to a Host With the Most


Steven Bradbury: A mastermind in the sport of short-track speedskating, he was well-positioned in the men's 1,000 final, way behind the pack, waiting patiently for the other four competitors to wipe out so he could cruise home for the gold. My kind of Olympic champion. The wily Aussie is now forever a part of the sporting lexicon: Whenever an athlete succeeds through nothing more than dumb luck, it's now called "pulling a Bradbury." Wayne Gretzky: He snubbed Patrick Roy, he left Joe Thornton off the roster, he acted like a crazy man during Team Canada news conferences, he wound up winning the gold medal. He pulled a Bradbury. The LA Times article, <a href="">A Toast to a Host With the Most</a> has some nice Olympic recaps.
