And don't tell me about the snowboarding...listen, you Shaun White bandwagoning-good-for-nothing-lovers, name ONE more snowboarder. Just one. From any other country. Male or female. Tell me one trick. Tell me how they are judged. Tell me what the events are. Exactly. Get off the bandwagon. Now.
And lastly, if you insist on religiously watching the Olympics please keep these few thoughts in mind:
Human Skeleton: This event would only be interesting if they randomly grabbed people from the crowd and threw them down the track...because let's be honest - what's the athletic skill involved here? Holding on for dear life? Closing your eyes and not crying out like a little girl? Can you imagine if the announcer was like from the Price is Right, "Come on down Boris! You've been chosen to break the world's record!"
Cross Country Skiing: I would watch this event if the theme of James Bond was always playing, and masked assassins chased after the skiers. Take away either two of these requests and I will not watch this. Okay, if you have a boy on a bike screaming, "I want my two dollars," then yes, I would watch it. (John Cusack movie. Look it up.)
Curling: I would only watch this if each team got sloppy drunk. Can you imagine how excited they would get if they hit the thingy (no research on curling was involved in this post) in the bulls-eye? Or how many falls there would be as they tried to sweep furiously behind? It would be awesome.
Bobsled: I would follow this event if there was a weigh requirement to the participants. 250 pounds and up. It would be fun to hear the commentators say, "Now this will be interesting. The team from China is weighing a total of 1,303 pounds and there is still a concern about the last man even fitting into the sled...let's now go to this human interest story about how Germany trains with a diet of cheese, chocolate and beer."
Stop the scam Putin. Stop it.
