The Olympics


Recommended Posts

OH. MY. GOD. Snap! Did anybody see the post 1500m press conference?! That was very very weird.

 

Shani Davis just confronted Hedrick for not congratulating him after the 1000m win despite (acc. to Davis) Davis shaking Hedrick's hand and hugging him after his win in the 5000m.

 

Then Hedrick spent 30 seconds drinking from his water glass. Stood up! at one point. Holy crap!! Then sputtered something about attending the Opening Ceremonies and team spirit and Davis not consulting with him, as team captain, about not participating in the team pursuit. CATFIGHT!!

Bode and Jacobellis have been very hard to root for, with their nonchalance and devil may care attitudes.

Much as the NYTimes said on their op-ed page late last week, Jacobellis's flaw was deigning to have a little fun. We are talking about games after all.

Ah, you've ignored one of the definitions of game: "a physical or mental competition conducted according to rules with the participants in direct opposition to each other." Actually, come to think of it, it sounds like what I do for a living.

What does the Olympic Committee/organization do with all the money it gets from the games? I mean how much does it cost to keep the eternal flame going?

Just think...if they were to liposuction all those steroid muscles away (in itself a costly surgery), then they could use that as fuel for the torches.

 

Or maybe do halfsies on the permanent flame on JFK's tomb, or something.

 

A bake sale might work.

 

Are they stricken for funds now, because of Joey Cheek's incredibly generous gesture in giving away his money to The Less Fortunate?

Edit: how about that US Men's hockey team, huh?

pathetic. the larger ice surface showcased their lack of skill.

Check out Mike Modano's excuse:

 

...he took aim at the people who put the disappointing squad together.

 

"You'd think USA Hockey would be a well-oiled machine, but it's not," he said. "Basically we were on our own for hotels, tickets, flights, stuff like that.

 

"Normally we wouldn't have to worry about stuff like that."

 

The only team they beat was Kazakhstan. Misery must love company, though, since Canada got bounced too. :unsure:
