Brotherhood At the Olympics

Oh, brother.
In the men's luge doubles event at the Winter Olympics last night, the top two finishing teams were two fraternal pairs. Andreas and Wolfgang Linger of Austria won the gold medals in this event last night, and the silver medals went to two Latvian brothers, Juris and Andris Sics. The Linger brothers also won in this same event at Torino in 2006. (Do you have to, do you have to, do you have to let it Linger? :-D)
The luge doubles event requires one rider to lie on top of another. I guess it makes sense that, if you're going to have some guy lie down on your stomach on a little sled going down a hill at 84 miles an hour, it might as well be your brother. :-O :-D
