Sports Illustrated has an awesome cover this week, celebrating Generation Y:

Sports Illustrated - Heavy Medal

This picture seems to capture the spirit I was trying to describe perfectly.
I used to think including "X sports" in the Olympics was a mistake, like, they aren't real sports, you know?  But I've changed my mind, I now think including them was the best thing that could have happened.  I look forward to seeing "X sports" included in the Summer Olympics as well (e.g. freestyle bicycling, and roller blading).
Hannah Teter, Seth Wescott, Shaun White, Danny Kass, Gretchen Bleiler, Lindsey Jacobellis. 
They rock :)
