Okay intelligent readers try and explain this one

Why are they saying the Olympics are in Torino when the actual name of the city they are in is called Turin?

Look at the link here. Its listed as the Torino games but the bid city is listed as Turin. Is the area around the city where the games are bing held called Torino? I don't know.

Never mind I found out myself from this. Looks like NBC is going against the grain and using the Italian pronunciation of the city name.

Okay get back to your life now. Someone is reading this and thinking "Stupid American thinking the world revolves around them." Well it does.
