I think this is the widest doodle ever made. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes that's right, this is the first time the logo 100%.

The link is a search of [Vancouver 2010].
If they would have made the link a search of [Olympic torch], then it might have listed the trend as "Olympic torch" "on fire".

Google could be trying out a new doodle method?
After the wide screens replaced the normal computer screens, maybe Google is making doodles that would not look small in a wide screen display.

But that's just a thought.. :)

Did they remove the luge doodle because of the accident?

Maybe, although the accident occured before the logo was placed?

the following post on twitter made me think that the doodles were moving doodles cuz it made it sound like it was an action shot:

<<<Good decision, Google, on swapping the luge doodle (of a luger sliding off the border, no less) for a snowboarder.>>>

I emailed Google about the Luge logo, here is the statement:

"Our hearts are with the family of Nodar Kumaritashvili in the wake of his tragic accident. By coincidence, today's doodle had been planned to celebrate lugers in this year's Winter Games. Out of respect for the loss of this tremendous athlete, we've now changed to the next installment of Olympics doodles."

It triggers the typical Vancouver 2010 search showing
