so I watched the opening ceremonies of the Olympics tonight, pretty cool. What I don't get though is why we're calling it "Torino"? The English version of the city is Turin, as in the Shroud of Turin. But nobody says the 1972 Olympics in München or Ciudad de México for the 1968 games or Athína for the Athens Olympics, so why Torino? I dunno.

we say turin, as does the post... i think nbc's just having fun with it, tripping all over the crazy italian city names and saying "the flying tomato" in italian.
