Metatalktail Hour: Overlooked! Underappreciated!

Happy Olympics weekend, MetaFilter! This week, I'd like to know not your favorite thing, but a thing you like or love that you think is wildly underappreciated or overlooked and more people should know about it and enjoy it! Books, food, movies, sports, dog breeds -- anything you think the rest of the world would enjoy if only they knew about it! [more inside]

Norway? On Skates?

Norway got called out in an AskMe about Hockey. Aside from our cool curling gear, I just wanted to point out ice hockey in Norway, even in downtown Oslo, does exist. You must clear your own snow though.

Where do I put this to discuss it?

I would like to talk about the opening ceremonies of the Salt Lake City Olympic Games. Is it more appropriate on MetaFilter or MetaTalk, or not?

Can we please talk civilly about... the Olympics? (2002)

I'm really intrigued here. A perfectly good thread (well maybe not great) about censorship of the Olympics, derailed by general revulsion towards a religion. Some tried to get back to the point, but the damage was done. Are all posts voicing concern over how the 2002 Winter games are run doomed to the same fate?
