Call them the even-if Olympics. Shaun White's bid to land a third consecutive halfpipe gold was going to be one of the most anticipated events of the Sochi Games even if he hadn't hit the deck in his first run of the finals like Tom Hanks' co-stars in "Captain Phillips. " Even if his friend and admirer Iouri Podladtchikov - a Switzerland-residing Russian native known, with Jobs-ian flair, as I-Pod - hadn't staged the run of his life and come down with a stratospheric score.

When a friend gets rich and famous and moves to Paris, then prattles on about the nutty things that French dentists say, that's grounds for never speaking to that person again. When the friend in question is an imaginary friend and his name is David Sedaris, such indiscretions are not only forgiven but embraced wholeheartedly. If there's ever been an author who is consistently forgiven for his trespasses, it's David Sedaris. In "Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls," everyone's favorite imaginary friend has abandoned France for the English countryside, where his life of leisure is only occasionally interrupted by sojourns to China, Australia and Japan.

After every Roller Hockey International game, hundreds of kids are allowed to lug hockey sticks, roller pucks and caps into the locker room in search of their favorite players' autographs. No one can say RHI, Ltd., doesn't know its fan base. Those little-known signatures may not be worth a lot at a sports memorabilia show, but they mean something to the youngsters who seek them. And their value is even more apparent to RHI, which stages its third annual all-star game at the Pond at 7 tonight.

SOCHI, Russia - Shaun White was not at the top of the Olympic podium. In fact, White did not make it to the podium at all. The face of the sport and the man considered the best snowboarder of his generation finished fourth in the men's halfpipe at the Olympics on Tuesday night at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park. "I was looking for four [golds] - I was hoping to do slopestlye, too," said White, who pulled out of the slopestyle event to concentrate on the halfpipe here. "But it didn't pan out.

SOCHI, Russia - In the parlance of the sport, it had to be gnarly. Slopestyle, the newest Olympic event, was always going to be a flashy addition to the Games - an acrobatic, free-form assault on a snowy obstacle course of rails and jumps. Elements of danger wouldn't just be evident. They would be a selling point, a path that would lead "slope" from X Games curiosity to legitimacy at the highest levels of international sport. But did the 2014 Winter Olympic Games go too far? On Wednesday, Shaun White, the most famous snowboarder in the world and one of the Games' seminal faces, abruptly withdrew from slopestyle, a day before competition would begin for the first time at the Olympic level.

SOCHI, Russia -- Extreme-sports icon Shaun White, citing the potential risk of injury, on Wednesday pulled out of the slopestyle snowboarding competition at the Olympics. White had called the course at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park "intimidating," and already it had become the source of controversy in the first two days of training -- most notably in the case of Norwegian medal hopeful Torstein Horgmo, who withdrew after breaking his collarbone in a crash on Monday. The decision for White was multi-pronged.
