It's amazing the parallels between the USA and Russia leading up to the Sochi games. There are calls again to boycott the Sochi games because of Russia's laws on gay rights and also because Putin granted asylum to Edward Snowden. We won't be boycotting this time like we did in 1980 so it will be the first time USA goes to an Olympics in Russia. I wrote all about the Soviet boycott in 1980 which played out at the Lake Placid Olympics.
