As for music repopularized by the 2018 Winter Olympics, how about the music of Of A Revolution, also known as O.A.R.? Some of their songs have regained popularity.

Jamaica sent its first bobsled team to the Winter Olympics this year. When the team's coach, Sandra Kiriasis, quit and threatened to take the team's bobsled with her, which brand of beer offered on Twitter to pay for a new sleigh?

Father Time is still undefeated.

Feel free to revisit this post if #12 hoists the Lombardi in 2019. Or 2020.
He threw for 505 yards and three TDs. Father Time may be undefeated, but he didn’t win this battle.

Roger Federer def. Marin Cilic 6-2, 6-7, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 to win the Australian Open. It's his 6th Aussie title (tied for most all-time), and he's the first male to 20 career Grand Slam titles. I remember watching the 2008 Wimbledon final, when Nadal finally got the best of Federer in the twilight. Al...

How did anyone know to go to Gogh?
Vincent Van Gogh was prolific in his correspondence to his brother Theo, and Theo was the type of person who saved every piece of mail that was ever sent to him. The letters are famous enough to have their own Wikipedia article.

I said "O2" for the millenium dome - I saw Monty Python perform there a few years back and I thought that's what it was called. The O2 is the Millennium Dome’s current name; more specifically, the O2 Arena is the sports and entertainment venue that comprises roughly 40% of the dome’s interior. I su...
