By Joe Ruley | BSU at the Games

Russia has created one of the world’s largest security forces for the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Doug Fry is in Sochi, Russia, to cheer on his daughter, Lyndsey Fry, a forward on the U.S. women's hockey team. The Chandler, Ariz., resident doesn't mind the security at Shayba Arena and elsewhere in Sochi given the potential threats.

Winter Olympics: Indiana Skier Finds Way to Part in U.S. Slopestyle Sweep

By Zach Huffman | BSU at the Games

It’s not even been three years since the International Olympic Committee brought slopestyle skiing into the Winter Olympics.

But it is what kids have been doing across the globe at ski areas and resorts for years. In terrain parks in the U.S. from coast to coast, skiers were riding every rail they could find and hucking themselves off mounds of snow wherever possible.

Among those kids was Nick Goepper, a member of the U.S. freestyle skiing team. When he started slopestyle skiing as an 11-year-old in southern Indiana, he was hooked.

New Sports Bar Catering To Women Is Offensive To My Delicate Lady Sensibilities

I am a woman. A woman who happens to enjoy sports. And while it's not often that I'll go to a sports bar to take in a Lions or Tigers or Red Wings game, it's been known to happen. Generally, the only thing at a sports bar that will irritate me while watching a game is the overly enthusiastic bros at the giant table who yell and high-five each other every time something even remotely positive happens. "The Lions didn't score a touchdown, but no one fumbled the ball! High five, bro!" *everyone slaps hands while I roll my eyes so hard it gives me a migraine*
