Georg Hackl is the Georg Hackl of Luge

Today, Georg Hackle of Germany wrapped up his spectacular Olympic luge career. This was his sixth Olympics, and won medals in five of them. So NBC called him the Babe Ruth of luge. The CBC, however, called him the Gordie Howe of luge. Just goes to show that the United States and Canada really are two different countries...

Do you think he'd be called the Pele of luge in South American coverage?
