Canadian Olympic Committee Suggests Ways to Boost Medal Count

Above: The only gold medals most Canadian athletes are likely to be biting in Athens are the kind made of chocolate.

[Editor's Note: Due to an unfortunate miscommunication with a travel agent, SP's senior Olympic correspondent Jay Brecher was unable to get to Athens, Greece in time for the opening ceremonies. However, he has been able to report firsthand on all of the latest Olympic news coming out of Athens, Georgia, and will continue to do so for the duration of the 28th Olympiad.]

Above: Outtake from Lenny Kravitz's new video, "I Don't Wanna Be A Star"

TORONTO (SP) — On Lenny Kravitz's new CD, Baptism, there is a track called "I Don't Wanna Be A Star". I have not heard this cut, nor do I plan to, but I have read all about it. It seems that Mr. Kravitz has come to the realization that the Rock game isn't all that's it's cracked up to be. What an original thought! But should we really expect anything better from the man who has spent the last decade and a half grave-robbing from the likes of Hendrix and Marley? » more...

Introducing Madonna Teplitsky

Above: Mama Teplitsky was honoured to be included to be included among the pantheon of famous Esthers, until this one came along.

TORONTO (SP) — My mother, whose name is Esther, will never accept or be comfortable with Madonna taking a place in the pantheon of famous Esthers. But then I realized that turnabout is fair play. If Madonna has the gall to proclaim herself Esther, then my mother should and would change her name to Madonna in return. » more...
