Nothing was inappropriate. It wasn't anything that NBC didn't broadcast to the country. Ridiculous. Sorry guys.)
Torino spent $107 million for security and all they got was a t-shirt that said "Golden Palace Casino" on it.
They might as well of now since a crazy Spanish fan stormed the stage while organizing committee chief Valentino Castellani spoke. He went to the microphone and said "Ahtawekthjadfdwkht!". At first I didn't know what the man said cause it was a forgein language. Maybe he said "JOHNNY WEIR JUST COME OUT OF THE CLOSET!!". I would have pissed in my pants if he did. Later reports have him saying "Passion Lives in Torino", which is the motto. It's also lame.
While luckily this guy didn't do anything violent, I'm a bit dissappointed. Golden Palace Casino hires these idiots to streak during major sporting event. Already one streaked during a curling match, which no one saw, and therefore no one reported on it. However at least this guy should have streaked and done an irish jig. A moonwalk. A backflip. Maybe imitated Lindsey Jacobellis. If you're going to make it all the way to the stage, you better do something good before they stick you with cattle prods. Instead he stated the Game's motto.
Surprisingly NBC decided to show him being taken away. I thought they'd edit out a fan rushing the stage, which is a slap in the face for security. But since ratings were low for most of the Olympics, so anything to get ratings right?
