Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

NBC’s Torino Tracker blog muses on the single-athlete Olympics representations:

This year, there are one-man contingents from Albania, Bermuda, Cyprus, Ethiopa, Virgin Islands, Kenya, Madagascar, Portugal and San Marino (Dan Marino if you’re typing quickly). The cynic in me wonders if the Olympic Committees in these nations coerced an athlete into participating so they could take a paid vacation to Italy for three weeks.

Taking an international junket on, literally, someone else’s sweat? Not so far-fetched, really.

And I wonder if San Marino did tap Dan Marino to be its Winter Games rep… Would the throngs of Sammarinese heartily cheer, “LACES OUT, DAN!” at whatever event the ex-Dolphin competed in?

  1. I’d imagine San Marino could expect a pretty good deal on Isotoner gloves were they to make that arrangement.
