Final Thought While Watching Olympics

After watching several days of Olympic mens' hockey coverage, Fogbot is struck by the "European boo" -- whistling.

The high-pitched whistle is the ultimate form of derision or jeering on the European continent, and it was on full display at these Olympics -- especially in sports with head-to-head competition, like hockey.

The lesson that can be learned from this strikes close to home, of course. Let's all hope that Super-Rookie begins to realize that all of those whistles coming his way are not compliments. In fact, they're far from it.
