How will the Sochi Olympic Medals look?

One of Oscar the Grouch's favorite things to say is "Scram!" Have you ever heard someone use this word in real life or seen it used in written correspondence, online or otherwise?
Eys because it's my favorite word.

much-criticized spirals I really like, though I'm aware of their imperfections:
's arabesque spiral
Emily Hughes' arabesque into Biellmann spiral
Slutskaya's multidirectional spiral
Kim's change-edge-into-catchfoot spiral

Some people complain about the very slightly bent knee, as in the Olympic LP). It doesn't bother me, but it's come up in the Trash Can and (IIRC) an especially vehement, now vanished YouTube comment deploring her "crooked spiral" and "horrible cheated flutz" (fair enough on the second count).
Lipinski, I suppose, despite the back pumping and "jackhammer" takeoffs on the flip and "lutz".
