Last night on TV was….the Olympics. And that was pretty much it.
And the Gold Medal for Shoulder Pads in the Rink goes to….
The Olympics were such a bore last night. I spent more time post-whoring than watching TV. Everyone who was ice dancing had to skate the tango to the same music for their compulsory scores. I had a really hard time watching the skeleton runs. Too much like the luge & flashbacks of that tragic crash make it just too hard to watch with any real excitement.
One good thing… there’s lots of gossip flying around. Of course Johnny Weir started things off with his flamboyant comments about bad judges & his right to wear fur. He announced yesterday that the world games would most likely be his last skating competition. He is looking to the future & wants to be a designer. Wow, isn’t that a shocker. Maybe we’ll see him on “Project Runway”! wouldn’t that be awesome.
Bronze medal snowboarder Scotty Lago went home early. It seems that TMZ got ahold of some photos of a young girl kneeling below Scotty’s waist to kiss his medal & another of him sticking it -the medal- in her mouth, all while wearing his Team USA gear. Very inappropriate for an American athlete. He high tailed it out of Canada before anyone got pics of him using that medal for a butt plug.
Canada’s biggest hockey darlings, twins Henrick & Daniel Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks hockey team have turned on their fans. The twins are playing on Sweden’s hockey team, their native country. They were born in that country & moved to Vancouver when they were teens, making hockey their profession & eventually the two signed identical contracts with the Canucks in 2006. A five-year contract for $30.5 million! But for now, to Canadians, they are just bums in yellow & blue!
Helmets are big this season, with lots of artwork on them. There has been lots of talk about US hockey goalie, Ryan Miller’s pumped up “Uncle Sam” sporting tattoos & huge muscles. It also has a huge array of red & blue stars, the Olympic rings & the phrase “Don’t Tread on Me”. He was asked to remove “Miller Time” from the helmet. It violated Olympic rule #51, of no advertising, propaganda or demonstrations. Miller explained that it honored a cousin who succumbed to cancer last year, not the beer company. Goalie Jonathan Quick was also asked to remove “Support Our Troops” from his helmet as well. Both taped over them. I personally love skeleton runner Jeff Pain’s helmet. The Canadian decided to honor his country’s mascot, the beaver, by emblazing him on his helmet with these huge front teeth coming straight at you! He got the idea when he saw an American helmet with an eagle head with it’s beak right up front.
