Plushenko skates with the crazy

I love me some angry ice skater. So, the Russian male figure skater, Evgeni Plushenko, has embraced the crazy, and awarded himself a PLATINUM medal from the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games. Still smarting from the silver medal he was given after failing to outscore Evan Lysacek in this weekend's skating contest, Plushenko has taken to the Internet, and proclaimed himself above the Games and is displaying a platinum medal on his web site (pictured there, to the left). It reads, "Silver of Salt Lake, Gold of Torino, Platinum of Vancouver." I can't imagine that the International Olympic Committee is going to look too favorably on him for blatantly belittling the skating results, but also for creating his own medal.
