If You're A Winter Olympian, Bring Your Own Pillow To Sochi

If You're A Winter Olympian, Bring Your Own Pillow To Sochi
By PJ Browne

You've heard the number before about the amount that has been spent on the Winter Olympics in Sochi ($51 billion) but amongst other things it seems that spend does not get you a sufficient quantity of pillows.

ATTENTION, DEAR COLLEAGUES!

Due to an extreme shortage of pillows for athletes who unexpectedly arrived to Olympic Village in the mountains, there will be a transfer of pillows from all apartments to the storehouse on 2 February 2014. Please be understanding. We have to help the athletes out of this bind.

The opening ceremony isn't until Friday and this is already a fascinating Winter Olympics.
