With the Olympics starting once again I realised that, despite my attempts otherwise, I will probably be glued to the TV for the next two weeks watching sports I wouldn’t normally care about for the other 1445 days in every four years. I realise that for the athletes and officials take the Olympic Oath, but what about those that are the real reason the Olympics exist, the spectators (or is the real reason the Olympics exist the sponsors?). For that reason, I have compiled an Olympic Oath for those of us that consider couch riding an official Olympic event.
In the name of all the spectators, I promise I shall watch these Olympic Games into the wee hours of the morning without knowing the rules which govern them but with the assistance of recreational chemicals should I see fit, and in true one eyed fashion, I will yell at my TV when my countryman is apparently done wrong by an official, and revel in the glory and honour of our teams since my fat butt has no chance of ever being part of one.
I would love to try and skate a Red Bull Crashed Ice course, but my skills on ice are lacking
Check out the latest installment in full (1.5hrs) from the 2012 season that took place in St Paul, Minnesota. There are more videos, including highlights, on various Red Bull YouTube accounts from other Crashed Ice seasons and races, just search YouTube. Also check out the Red Bull Crashed Ice website.
I would like to be able to run the contest of the Swedish Women’s Soccer team vs. the Polish Women’s Volleyball team in context (ie. pictures from the pitch/court), but there isn’t a lot around for the Swedes. So here’s a little gallery of a few of the Swedish Women’s Soccer team just for you to enjoy (and by you, I mean Glenn!).
This one is more about much discussion that has been around the traps today after SBS’s Olympic broadcast last night that featured an women’s indoor volleyball game between Poland and China. The point of the discussion….are these the hottest women in the entire Olympic competition this year? So far, they have my vote, but there is a suggestion the Swedish women’s soccer team will give them a run for their money.
Just got back from Detriot Pistons vs. Orlando Magic @ Detroit. This is the second (and probably last) NBA game I will go to. It was one sided from outset, just like the Pistons v Clippers game I went to last year…Detroit killed them in that one too. When basketball is that one-sided, it may as well be golf…Zzzzzzzzzz.
