The 15 Most Terrifying Faces Of The Sochi Olympics

Olympic Figure Skater

The Sochi Olympics have been slightly anti-climatic compared to the surrounding controversies: slain puppies, cameras in bathrooms, next level Tinder hookups, still  there is one aspect we can’t get enough of. It’s those terrifyingly weird faces. Any activity that exerts that much energy is going to require a lot of funny faces mid twirl, jump or splash. The Winter Olympics are supposed to be elegant, graceful and poised yet even the best Olympians can’t resist making scrunchy, disgusted and frightful faces during the competition. To be honest, it’s their greatest feat aside from precise athleticism. Check out all 15 photos on College Candy…

Everyone Is Mad At NBC For Making Olympic Medalist Bode Miller Cry

Everyone Is Mad At NBC For Making Olympic Medalist Bode Miller Cry
Bode Breaks Down

Yesterday was a big day for Alpine skier Bode Miller — he won the bronze medal in the Super-G competition at the Sochi Olympics, giving him six career Olympic medals, more than any other skier. It was also a bittersweet moment, as Bode’s brother Chelone “Chilly” Miller, who died last year from an apparent seizure, was on his mind. Interviewed post-race by NBC, Miller broke down in tears after the reporter, Christin Cooper, repeatedly asked him questions about Chilly, prompting many on Twitter to call out Cooper and NBC for being “insensitive.” Keep reading »

Swoon: US Olympic Skier Gus Kenworthy Is Rescuing Stray Dogs In Sochi

Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new favorite Olympic athlete: Gus Kenworthy. Not only is the 22-year-old skier super talented on the slopes (and in possession of a pair of adorable pink cheeks that I kind of want to pinch — does that make me old?), he’s also a lifelong animal lover who has been using his downtime in Sochi to rescue stray puppies. Total dreamboat status, right? Kenworthy lost his beloved dog Mack just last year, so when a friend in Sochi texted him about a litter of strays living underneath a media tent, Kenworthy rushed over to see how he could help. After locating the puppies and tweeting some seriously cute photos, Kenworthy set to work figuring out how to bring the homeless pups back to the states with him. Keep reading »

Watch Olympic Figure Skater Jason Brown Fart His Way To A Bronze Medal

Olympic Flatulence
Watch Olympic Figure Skater Jason Brown Fart His Way To A Bronze Medal
Let It Out, Jason!

It’s hard to boycott the Olympics when the flatulence coverage is so riveting. Figure skater Jason Brown helped the United States win a bronze medal in Sochi, so you know what amazing feats he can accomplish with his body. But you might not have known what he can do with his butt. The geniuses over at Ghost + Cow films did us the favor of dubbing farts over Jason Brown’s performance — as well as some other athletes competing in in the 2014 Winter Olympics. Such nonsense, yet so undeniably excellent. It’s right up there with the Evgeni Plushenko/Ginuwine mashup. [College Humor]

An Inner Monologue While Watching The Olympics At A Sports Bar And Eating Parmesan Garlic Fries

An Inner Monologue While Watching The Olympics At A Sports Bar

I feel that the Olympics are best viewed while eating greasy foods and questioning the life choices that kept you from being an Olympian, which is why I’m now at a sports bar eating parmesan garlic fries. I rarely go to sports bars or eat fries in my normal life, but this is a special occasion. It’s my duty to my country. I wonder how these fries would taste dipped in mayonnaise. Oh my God. So good. I can’t believe I used to judge the mayo fry kids in elementary school. Those kids knew what was up.

Yay! Commercials are finally over and we’re back to the games. Ooh it’s the bumpy skiing race! I know it has a different, more official-sounding name, but I don’t even really want to know it. “Bumpy skiiing race” sums it up so nicely. Keep reading »

If Russian Figure Skater Evgeni Plushenko Did A Routine To Ginuwine’s “Pony”

If Russian Figure Skater Evgeni Plushenko Did A Routine To Ginuwine's "Pony"
Ride It, My Pony!

…it might look something like this. Plushenko is favored to win the individual men’s gold medal at the Sochi Olympics, but I’m pretty sure he could up his chances even more by just skating to “Pony” live. Ride it, my pony! [YouTube]

Watch Olympic Ice Dancing Duo Meryl Davis & Charlie White Skate To Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love”

Watch Olympic Ice Dancing Duo Meryl Davis & Charlie White Skate To Beyonce's "Drunk In Love"
This Is The Best!

I didn’t think it was possible for me to love Beyonce and Jay Z’s collab “Drunk In Love” any more than I already do, but then I saw U.S. Olympic ice-dancing duo Meryl Davis and Charlie White skate to it (by which I mean, the music was synced and dubbed over their routine) and, well, my love increased tenfold. Is it that Beyonce makes ice dancing better or that ice dancing makes Beyonce better? Hard to say. Regardless, this routine is ***flawless.

Female Olympian’s ‘Wardrobe Malfunction’ Proves We’re All Still A Bunch of Prudes

female-olympian-malfuction

Russian speedskater Olga Graf earned herself a bronze medal in Sunday’s women’s 3000 meter race, and then celebrated with what’s being heralded as a massive “wardrobe malfunction.”In what turned out to be the least revealing flashing of all time, Graf unzipped her suit after winning, and flashed a bit of chest. At this point, I can’t even remember what she won or who she is because all I can think about is the possibility of seeing a bare chested woman. Read more on The Gloss…
