Fat Cat Olympics

Fall Line
posted: 03/17/2005

Looking for a ringside seat at the five-ring circus? The U.S. Ski Team would love to hook you up with "Team Torino" for the 2006 Winter Olympics. But it'll cost you. Here's what you get: nine nights' lodging in the mountains near Torino, special team dinners with athletes ("Hey Daron, you gonna eat that pork chop?"), access to Ski Team headquarters and tickets for two to a bunch of stuff, including five alpine events and the opening or closing ceremonies. Cool package. And the price is...$73,500...per year...for the next three years. That calculates out to $24,500 per day for a little Italian winter vacation. For that amount, you'd think they'd throw in a couple of gold medals. (usskiteam.com)
