Word from the Couch: U-S-A! U-S-A! U.S. sports four medals in The Daily Beast's Couch Potato Olympics, easily nabbing the top spot on our podium. Just like in the real Olympics, where America is jockeying to hold on to the medal lead, America always goes big, or doesn't go at all. From the
Wing Bowl in Philadelphia, to New York City's historic
Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest to countless county fairs across the nation featuring fried everything, gluttony is as American as an entire apple pie, and apparently all that downtime in front of televisions and computers translates into lots of sports viewing, not much sports playing.
