    The US is beginning to seem like the Soviet Block pre-1998 - win by hook or crook.

    I like Winter Olympics better than Summer, since the influence of doping is much less. But having an entire event, Snow Boarding, designed and judged so Sean White can win until his knees need replacing leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth.

    It's so much cleaner to celebrate the wins of the hockey teams and those wonderful Alpine skiers rather than extolling a metal count dependent on secret judging.
    I hate to bring out the facts, but the US has won a whopping number of medals in non-judged events: 8 medals on the slopes in Alpine skiing, 4 medals in regular speed skating, a medal in men's snowboard cross (a race), a medal in women's bobsled, a medal in women's hockey, a medal in men's hockey on the way.... That's 16 medals right there.

    If you lump in the short track speed skating, which really isn't a judged sport either - it's racing, that's another 6 medals.

    Add onto that that the US got its first gold EVER in Nordic Combined this year and that the American Nordic Combined team is leaving with 4 medals in a sport that the US had never medalled in before EVER.....

    I'd say the US is doing fantastic this Olympics.

    "My name is Odd-Bjoern HJELMESET (NOR). I skied the second lap, and i fucked up today. I think i have seen too much porn in the last 14 days. I have the room next to Petter (NORTHUG, NOR) and every day there is noise in there. So i think that is the reason i fucked up. By the way, Tiger Woods is a really good man."

    Honest to god. When i saw that i couldn't believe it was real but it was on the internal Olympic News Service. Un-fucking real! I love it.
    Ah-ha! So that's why the Norwegians lost the relay! I wonder if this tidbit made it's way to the Norwegian papers... Cross-country skiing is to Norway what hockey is to Canada.

    Yeah, I probably posted that in the wrong thread, since it won't be shown on everyone's favorite station, NBC, until tonight. BUT WE DID IT!!!!!!!

He was done with him - both more trouble than they were worth.

    Oh wow. I knew some of it, but not all of it. And I live in Philly. Hated hockey so much I only read the sports page on Lindros when they had shirtless pics of him.

    I was told that the rumors about his sexual orientation started because he was boffing the gf or wife of either another player or a Flyers exec. Fans of his insist the stories were planted because people were hating on him.

    Isn't that great.

    Idiot number one:

    "Oh I just hate that guy..how can we get people to hate his guts?"

    Idiot number two:

    "lets start rumors that he is a fag!-everyone will hate him then."

    Sports have come so far, haven't they? *eyeroll*

    Michael Phelps is a racist douche. He told Scotty Lago that the chick in that "BJ" pic was laineygossip because she treid to get a kiss pic with him earlier in the week. All Asians don't look alike asshole.

    Now everyone thinks lainey is the one who got Lago kicked out of the Olympics.

    Scotty Lago Conspiracy Theory -- Up in Smoke

    Posted Feb 27th 2010 2:15PM by TMZ Staff
    Scotty Lago -- with the help of Michael Phelps -- has hatched a conspiracy theory about those not-really-salacious pics that got Scotty booted from the Olympics ... but it doesn't hold up to us.



    Lago told us that Phelps told a friend of his about the time when an Asian journalist tried to kiss Phelps on the cheek for a photo. That journalist was Lainey Liu, who runs a site called laineygossip.com -- and she wrote about the encounter with Phelps about a week ago and posted the photo above (left).

    Lago's run-in was infamously documented (right) and a quick comparison of the two women shows very little similarity to us -- except of course for ... well, you know.

    Michael Phelps looks like the missing link. He probably really does have webbed feet since he's only one generation up from a toad.

    I wonder if Lainey will comment on this on Monday. I'm sure someone's told her about it if it's on TMZ. I guess this will stop her loins from quivering for him!

    excuse me but can I ask a question.. in the gala did the pairs skaters skate? I didn't see any of them, I might have dozed off. I saw the ice dancers skate, the guys (gold and silver) and one lady and thats all - was that it?
