Former North Idaho College stalwart Tugce Canitez’s bid for an Olympic medal has come to a halt. Turkey, Canitez’s homeland, was edged by Russia in a taut 66-63 decision in the women’s basketball quarterfinals on Tuesday night, ending the Turks’ first-ever appearance in the sport. The first-round elimination came after an impressive pool play showing which saw Turkey go 4-1 with wins against Angola, Czech Republic, China and Croatia. The USA handled Turkey 89-58. Canitez, 21, was the youngest player on the roster and was the 12th-youngest in the 12-team tournament. She saw action in all six contests, averaging 7.4 minutes, 1.3 points and 1.8 rebounds an outing/Ryan Collingwood, VarsityCDA. More here.

Does anyone really enjoy Secret Santa? Is mistletoe just an excuse to grope the unsuspecting?
Here’s some Christmas traditions some could do without:
Secret Santa: Here’s the way Secret Santa should work: everyone in the office brings a $20, puts it in a hat, the hat gets shuffled up, and everyone takes out a $20. And then you say “Hey, $20! I can really use that! Thanks, Secret Santa!” and you go back to online shopping at your desk.
Leaving Anything Other than Cookies for Santa: Okay, you can get away with a carrot for the reindeer, but beyond that? Things are out of hand. The elves want midget porn, Ms. Claus wants some Midol, Frosty the Snowman’s looking for something from one of the local dispensaries to fill that corncob pipe. Everyone’s got their hands out nowadays.
(Though I totally disagree with the one about no stockings for your pets. Like Santa would forget Milo!)
