We turn the blog over to our pinch hitter Mason Baveux for his, um, unique take, on the Olympics in Sochi. Mason?
Thanks for bloggery Davey as you know I watch er close enough for four people, let alone just meself.
The Openin Ceremonials were what I’d expect from a country what was Commie for so long. It looks like they sold off the producin rights to the drug-addled dope heads what did the French Winter Olys in 1992 in Albertville. There was dancers flyin all over the place while they shot pictures down on the arena floor and then reenacted the Battle of Kursk with flyin rigs and no tanks. Plus they left out the bit about Stalin killin about a third of the population when he woke up from a four-day vodka toot. Not all of us are as forgetful as that, doncha know. Citius, Altius, What the Fookius?
As for Sochi, there were enough stories about rooms without doors, or taps that dispensed hot and cold sewage that I don’t need to bring that back up. Oh and the shots of the main drag in Sochi havin friggin palm trees for chrissakes. Jesus Mary and Gord, do those dough-heads at the IOC not check an atlas before they give up the rights? It seems they got snow alright, if you consider ground up ice that’s sloppier than the ex-wife’s twat to be real snow-snow. Crap lads, hold the Winter Olys somewheres they have Winter. Should maybe write that down as Rule #1.
I was all wound up to report on the Snowstyle Skiing what it is a new Oly sport, when I come down with a case of of the flu what caused me to be on my arse for near close a week. They fed me full of over the counter cold medicine that when mixed up with the rum I was takin for medicinal purposes caused a couple of issues. I think Canada won some Gold Medals there, but all I could see was some girls and a couple of guys fallin down a hill arse over teakettle on skis, what then get a score. Seems you get the high score if you don’t actually die. I think I missed some in there from the medicine, so’s it not the whole story.
I want to take a moment here and talk about the Gay Right thing what was all in the papers before the Sochi Games. It’s like CCM or Bauer for skates. Some like the Taks, other like the Bauers. I’m a CCM guy, so don’t be wavin your Bauer’s at me. And don’t come round with some raggedly ass Nike skates. There just wrong and then there’s Wrong with a capital letter. I’m from the old school of what you do in private is up to you. If you like this or that equipment, that’s your choice and as long as you’re not offerin something I don’t want and are willin to accept a polite “Eff Off” then I got no issue.
When the Russian government and Vladimir Putin gets up on the back legs about the gays not bein gayish in Sochi, then maybe they should look at some of the sports, like two-man luge, ice dancin or Bobsleddin then think for another eleven seconds afore openin your borscht hole. Don’t be a bad host or a bad guest, but if your host is offerin you a roasted goat ballsack covered in chocolate sprinkles, you can just say no, politely and wait for the Chex Party Mix to come by again. A good guest don’t do nothin to offend and the host don’t offer somethin that’s goin to make people angry. A bit of give and take, is all I’m sayin.
Fancy Skatin: Patty Chan did a fine job today, nailin a Silver in the Fancy Skatin and that Japanese 19 year old kid is goin to be a killer come 2018 wherever the hell they’re hostin next. I was confused, or mebbe I didn’t hear right, but one of the Oly commentators said Patrick Chan had a chink in his armour. I didn’t near but laugh my rum across the room in a spit take that Sid Caesar woul’d laughed at and now he’s dead, don’t you know.
Girl’s Ski Jumpin: Holy Fook me! I’m for it.
Cross-Country: Mother of Pearl those folks are fit. I’d like to see them change up the biathalon though. Two loops, one clockwise, one counter, but they meet in the middle where the gun range is. No targets, except your competitors across the way. I think that’d change it up a bit and harken back to the early days of WWII when Finland took on the Russkies and damn near beat their asses.
Tag Team Luge: This’ere a new one, but I think they missed the boat. They should start side by side and be allowed to duke it out on the way down. Sort of like the bike pursuit in the Summer Olys. One chasin, and one runnin away from the other, but we’d have to say no to the spikes in the gloves.
Canada’s gettin’er done over there. And I’s back to the Benlyn with the Codeine and the Captain Morgan chaser. Later.
