Luge death

Georgian luge hopeful Nodar Kumaritashvili crashed during the men's Luge practice at the Whistler Sliding Centre and was killed after he was thrown from his sled at high-speed and smashed into a metal pillar. Luckily, the news didn't do a constant loop on this tragedy -- but you can expect YouTube hits to pick up. -- Jevon Phillips, L.A. Times
