Am I the only one or do these Olympics seem more like the Yo, Dude, Like, Y'know, Totally, Whatever Games?
Bode Miller flames out. Not once. Not twice. But three times so far.
Two to go. And that snowboard cross babe with a lock on a gold
medal pulls a hotdog with mustard and falls. Il Divo speedskater Shani
Davis refuses to skate in the new team pursuit competition, saving
the INDIVIDUAL events and costing the team a chance for a medal. This
dude is full of 'tude. His
mother is also a piece of work control freak by the way. From what I've
read, she makes Joan Crawford seem like Mary Poppins. As for the Flying
Tomato snowboard guy -- enough said.
Which brings me to Bryant Gumbel's outrageous comment about the quality
of the athletes -- something about the Olympics looking like a GOP
convention. In other words, there are no blacks competing to speak of,
so how good could the athletes be? And to think, just a few years
ago, Jimmy the Greek lost his network job for saying that blacks were
more gifted athletically. Ah the irony.
White people may have a lock on the Winter Olympics for some time to
come. Who else would think that competing outdoors in freezing cold and
snow was a good idea?
