I'm outside of the US (specifically, in Israel), and I don't have a TV. My wife is a winter sports fan, and I promised her she'd be able to watch the olympics online, but I couldn't find anywhere normal.
I'm willing to pay, so it doesn't have to be free, but no weird sites with trojans either, please.

Is there a website that lists all of the Opening Ceremony outfits for the Vancouver Olympics and where to buy them? I really liked the track jackets from the Netherlands/zubaz from Azerbaijan -- and want one -- but can't suss out all of the Flash Olympic sites. [more inside]

In the 2002 Winter Olympics, there was a female figure skater or ice dancer with a Celtic/Irish name. Her name had a traditional spelling and the announcers were constantly stumbling over the pronunciation. [more inside]

Last night while watching Olympic ski jumping, I noticed what appeared to be tiny pine trees spaced evenly down the center of the hill, right between the jumpers' ski tracks. What are they for, and why use pine trees?

Olympic Nordic Combined skiing is male-only. Isn't this against the Olympic Charter? Do women want to compete? Is the sport being promoted to women? What would happen if a woman applied to compete?
