I don't follow sports except for the winter Olympics, but every four years, I get fired up with Olympics enthusiasm.

The problem is, I don't always know enough about the different sports to follow them very well. I'll be watching the luge or skiing or speed skating, and I won't know what the scores mean, or whether there's a preliminary run first, or whether it's 2 out of 3, or whatever. And the commentators don't always do a great job in explaining this stuff - they seem more interested in sob stories about American athletes.

Anyway, I would love to find a resource that explains this stuff clearly, for each sport. I looked on the newsstand today to see if there was a special magazine for the Olympics, but there was nothing. (There's an entire magazine devoted to fantasy baseball, but the Olympics only get 2 pages squeezed in between football and basketball?)

I've also been looking online, but I haven't found anything like what I'm looking for. The NBC olympic pages have a lot of information, but there are so many flashing ads and videos that jump up at you that I can't find much information. I'd love to find something simple and printable so I could refer to it while watching the events.

Any suggestions?
