Canadian Women’s Hockey Team Reprimanded For Partying And Other Olympic Fun-Crushing

I don’t know when someone decided that athletes were supposed to be virtuous role models, but apparently athletes didn’t get the memo. The International Olympic Committee got pissed off at the Canadian women’s hockey team who won gold medals and promptly cracked open some beers and champagne right on the ice. So they’re chilling on the rink, boozing it up and the Olympic Committee is all, “It is not what we want to see. I don’t think it’s a good promotion of sport values. If they celebrate in the changing room, that’s one thing, but not in public.” And then Canada’s Olympic Committee is all, “In terms of the actual celebration, it’s not exactly something uncommon in Canada.” Because, apparently, Canada wasn’t founded by lame-o narcs. [Newser]

I understand why they crack down on Olympians for illegal activities, but shouldn’t adults who just dedicated their lives to earning Olympic medals be allowed to celebrate? Apparently not, according to these instances of Olympic fun-crushing. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “The Crazies,” “Cop Out,” “A Prophet”

I’m starting to notice that certain types of movies come out at certain times of the year. Family and blockbuster movies all wedge their way into that blissful time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, sappy relationship movies get Valentine’s Day, and all the scary/political/cop/insanity movies come around that depressing end-of-winter-still-no-hope-for-spring time. As if we have nothing better to do than go slowly insane. This week’s releases include “The Crazies,” “Cop Out,” and “A Prophet.” I know “Cop Out” isn’t going to be depressing per se, but every time Kevin Smith directs a movie he didn’t also write, a fairy loses her wings and plummets to her death. And that’s depressing. Keep reading »

5 Claws-Out Athlete Cat Fights

Catfight alert! U.S. skier Julia Mancuso (right) has had it with teammate Lindsey Vonn (left), and is letting the press know all about it. “People are having a hard time reaching their potential because it’s such a struggle for attention,” said Mancuso. “You come to meetings after races and it’s like it’s a bad day if Lindsey didn’t do well.” Her anger might not just be stemming from Vonn’s sometimes distracting photo shoots—Vonn also (maybe) blew Mancuso’s chances of coming in first place in the slalom. When Vonn crashed ahead of Mancuso on the course, officials had to have Mancuso start her run over because of “deteriorating conditions.”

Vonn was not pleased with Mancuso’s words. “It definitely has hurt me that she said some negative things,” Vonn told the Seattle Times. “All I can do is continue to support her like I always have been and hope that she reciprocates that.” [Newser]

I never understood why guys get off on girl fights, but there seems to be a lot of pent-up aggression with female athletes in particular. Check out these exxxtreme clashes, after the jump. Keep reading »

30 Annoying Things Men Assume About Women

I’ll admit it’s hard to complain when a waiter automatically puts the check in front of your date or when “women and children” are evacuated first from a sinking ship. But sometimes it gets really annoying when men assume certain things about women just because we’re women. Sure, these assumptions may apply to some of us, but not the entire gender, across the board. Here are 30 annoying things that men assume about women — they came to mind instantly, because we’re complain-y like that. Keep reading »

A 25-year-old stripper named Stefani Talbott told In Touch this week that she slept with “Lost” star Matthew Fox. “He didn’t tell me to keep it a secret or anything,” she claimed. “He didn’t even use protection. He didn’t seem concerned at all.” Stefani (with an ‘i’) even has a cabbie eye-witness who confirms that the father of two cheated on his wife of 18 years. Could it be true? [NY Daily News]

I don’t get why famous hotties leave their beautiful wives to screw strippers without bagging it up. That said, I totally get why said strippers sell their stories to the tabloids. With that kind of money, they can finally go to med school like they always wanted! Let’s take a look at other famous guys whom strippers claim they got down with.
