Speed Skaters Lose Due To Under Armour Wardrobe Malfunction

February 14, 2014

New high-tech suits designed by Under Armour specifically for the Olympics may be a factor in the U.S. speedskating team’s disappointing performances at the Olympics, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. According to the report, U.S. speedskating officials and coaches have tried to determine the cause of these failures, and sources close to the team told the Wall Street Journal that the Under Armour suits worn by American competitors could be to blame.

The new suits, designed specifically for these Olympics, are suspected of slowing down speedskaters through a glitch in design. Under Armour’s design for the suits came from an intricate analysis of speedskating science and dynamics. The result was the “Mach 39″ suit, which promised to be the fastest suit ever. One skater said team members felt they were fighting the suit to maintain correct form.

2014 Super Bowl To Be In Cold Weather Stadium NFL Commish Needs Chazz Michael Michaels

February 5, 2013

The 2014 Super Bowl will be the first to be played outdoors in cold weather conditions and the centerpiece performance may be a casualty of freezing temperatures, it was revealed today.

The New York Post reported that there are no plans for a musical show at the Metlife Stadium in New Jersey as NFL officials can’t work out how to put on the huge spectacle in wintry conditions. The challenges of a cold-weather Superbowl  are not just musical – there is a long list of potential  problems for the  organizers. The 2014 Super Bowl is the first to be staged  in two states as New Jersey and New York are collaborating to host the massive  event. As a result, mass transit in the event of  heavy snowfall is a major concern.

‘The NFL is freaking out about these issues  because they’ve never done a cold-weather Super Bowl,’ one source told the  Post.
