Olympic Geekiness: Figure Skating Edition

Tuesday night Geek World was watching the Male Figure Skating competition (hey don't judge us man!) and one of the Japanese skaters, Nobunari Oda (2009 Japanese Champion), according to the NBC commentator is "the 17th descendant of Nobunaga Oda... the famous Japanese Warlord, 1534-1582 in the age of the Japanese Civil War... inspiration for the Super Nintendo video game series Nobunaga's Ambition." First off, nice geeksearch NBC, secondly, it's just kinda awesome!
