Uh, So, THIS JUST IN: US Olympic committee send cease and desist letter to knitting Olympics

The US Olympic committee has sent a cease and desist letter to the social networking group Ravelry, who had organised a Ravelympics in which contestants would compete in events such as ‘scarf hockey’ while watching the actual Games on TV.
It has been deemed that this knit-contest makes a mockery of the real Games. 

The US Olympic Committee has said that “the athletes of Team USA have spent the better part of the entire lives training for the opportunity to compete at the Olympic Games and represent their country in a sport that means everything to them” and that “using the name ‘Ravelympics’ for a competition that involves an afghan marathon and sweater triathlon tends to denigrate the true nature of the Olympic Games”.
LOL.  Don't really think any comments are necessary here...nope, not necessary at all...what about hipster olympics?  Does that denigrate the true nature of the Olympic Games too?  You be the judge.  See below for more details.
