The XXIII Winter Olympics: Day 9

Hooray Beer! Just as we have a Tongan competing in Cross Country (he didn’t finish last, he finished third from last which means there are at least 2 skiers from traditional Winter Olympic countries that are worse than he is) we have, periodically, sightings of the Jamaican Bobsled Team. This year’s edition is 2 Women, …

The XXIII Winter Olympics: Day 8

Ok, so I’m kind of cranky because I spent all day hassling my ISP (yeah, day two of that) because my Modem/Wireless Router suddenly lost all my networking information like its name and all the passwords and it’s kind of a big deal since I have about 10 or 15 devices that log in at …

The XXIII Winter Olympics: Day 7

The Bachelor Winter Games Anthem Ok, that is exactly as bad as Coleman Bentley of Golf Digest says it is (The only thing worse than The Bachelor Winter Games’ anthem is…nothing, nothing is worse).

The XXIII Winter Olympics: Day 5

The XXIII Winter Olympics: Day 4

The XXIII Winter Olympics: Day 3

Ok, I decided to skip a day in the numbering because the upcoming events looks a day forward to tomorrow. Becca and Matt Hamilton were drawing dead today. Last night’s loss to China didn’t quite make a trip to the semi-finals impossible, but the first victory by anyone else today sure did. As I write …

The XXIII Winter Olympics: Opening Ceremony

So you want to see it from the beginning? Too bad, Mixed Doubles Curling (what a great sport!) has been going on for 2 days now and Team USA (the highly likeable and very talented Brother/Sister Pair of Becca and Matt Hamilton) are already behind 1 – 3 in the Round Robin having crushed the …

A Junkyard Cesspool Games Update

Ratings suck and while it could be the venue (and probably is to a certain extent, Rio is a paradigm of the corruption of the International Olympic Committee) it’s more probable that it’s the terrible and unwatchable coverage being offered by NBC. NBC knows who to blame for poor Olympics ratings — millennials and their …

#TEAMUSA

The Olympics start in Rio on Friday, but we aren’t supposed to tell you that on this web site or on Twitter of Facebook. We aren’t suppose to congratulate the athletes either. Why, you ask is that? Well, according to International Olympic Committee and the US Olympic Committee it’s to protect the athletes and prevent …
