Another Reason to Go for Gold
Yesterday, Deadspin’s Barry Petchesky and I were discussing what the Olympic medals were actually worth. “One of us should write a post about this,” I said. Well, Barry has beaten me to it. Everyone wants to go for gold, and they should—the gold medal is worth 129 times as much as the bronze medal. Of course, as Barry notes: You can’t put a price on history.
