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…

Sisterly Sacrifice: American Athlete Forfeits Olympic Spot For Her Twin

As a twin, news stories about “my kind” always hold a special place in my heart, but this latest one is a real doozy.

This past weekend, Lanny and Tracy Barnes, 31-year-old twin sisters from Colorado who both participated in the 2006 Winter Games, were to compete in their final qualifying races to join this year’s Olympic biathletes, who will head to Sochi, Russia, next month. (And, in case you’re wondering, Olympic biathlon combines cross-country skiing and target shooting.)

Tracy, who’s five minutes older than her sister, competed and earned herself a well-deserved spot on the team. Lanny, on the other hand, fell ill and was unable to compete in three out of the four weekend tryout races, which, consequently, disqualified her.

And here’s where it gets good. When Tracy was officially offered a position on the 2014 USA biathlon team, she declined the spot, knowing that her sister would be pegged for the honor instead. And she was. Keep reading »
