Russia livid over lackluster Olympics

Russia's success in the 2010 Olympics was fleeting at best. It ran sixth in the medal count, well behind the US, Germany, and Canada. Needless to say the Russian athletic community is taking it on the chin. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is calling on officials involved with Winter Olympic sports to resign or "we will help them." No word on what Vladimir Putin, the Russian Prime Minister (and the real power in the country) thinks, but it's probably along the same lines.
The members of the Russian Olympic Hockey team who play in the NHL are probably lucky they had somewhere else to go besides the Motherland also. Coach Vyacheslav was quoted last week as saying “Let’s put up a bunch of guillotines and gallows. We have 35 people on the hockey team. Let’s go to Red Square and dispatch with them all.”
Oh well, I hear Siberia's very beautiful this time of year.
