Washington state has year 'round Olympics
It's understandable that VANOC has a responsibility to protect the Olympic brand, but I thought it was a bit silly when they went after little Olympic Pizza a while back.
One thing they won't be able to touch are Washington state's Olympic Mountains -- more commonly referred to as simply the Olympics.
They've been around a long time and aren't going anywhere, anytime soon. Only problem is, the popular Hurricane Ridge Road is closed due to a large slide.
