Capture the gold medal... in Hoth

Star Wars fan Shane Igoe has decided he's got the perfect place for the 2014 winter games: Hoth. Yeah, the Hoth that was featured in "The Empire Strikes Back." Never mind the fact that it doesn't really exist, it's chilly climate and hilly landscape make not only the ideal location for a rebel hideout but also, according to Igoe, the perfect spot for the winter games. Igoe has launched a website where you can sign an online petition to get the games hosted on Hoth, design an athlete, try to avoid a George Lucas lawsuit and some other nifty stuff.

That's cute. But seeing as at least some of the shots were shot in a snowy parking lot, I don't know how good Hoth can really do at hosting some winter games. :P

Hoth will be good. It'll make an interesting Skeleton, or Cross Country Skiing. Will the Skiers have to cut something open and crawl inside to keep warm? We'll find out soon enough
