YAY!! We beat the Chinese in Olympic medals, something we never could do to the USSR. How exciting how thrilling! Course we drove the Soviet Union into a bankruptcy that ultimately toppled it. Now China owns trillions of dollars of our National Debt. How do you say “he who laughs last” in Chinese?
When a nation seizes the fairly earned wages of its citizens in order to pay a misogynist to advertise a bankrupt automobile company, that nation deserves to fail. That’s all I got.
Oh, Lord, the football hype between Chicago and Green Bay is getting just a bit silly. Help!, I am an innocent bystander caught between their crossfires. My college classmate, Fritz Laeser of Edgewater Inn & Cottages wrote last Wednesday: Aaron Rodgers, who art in Lambeau, Hallowed be thine arm. Thy bowl will come, it will [...]
I hope conservatives won’t feel compelled to root for Johnny Weir out of their disdain for animal rights groups. Weir tried his best to offend Republicans, or rather the imaginary boogeyman Republicans. He dressed in high heels and wore feather boas. And just to emphasize how outrageous he is to Republicans he said; “I know [...]
For the next six weeks the skating press and internet fan groups will speak gleefully of the idea that the Russians will be shut out of the medals in figure skating at the Vancouver Olympics. Furthermore these groups will continue to insist that the Russian shut out PROVES that the horrific new judging system works as [...]
BurkeanSon wanted to watch baseball today. So naturally I popped Take Me Out To The Ball Game in the dvd player. He said that wasn’t real baseball. I told him it was a lot more real than today’s steroid ball. Ah when men were men and didn’t need performance enhancing drugs. And could really sing [...]
Mirai Nagasu’s reign as US National Champion ends this Saturday. From the way she skated in the fall no one is expecting her reign to be extended. This is skating, the most unpredictable of sports, so anything can happen, but most likely Mirai will be replaced as National Champion in 6 days. When Rudy Galindo [...]
I got two whole predictions right last year, so I am feeling cocky. It doesn’t matter who wins the men’s event at Nationals, NBC’s coverage will be propping Evan Lysacek and Scott Hamilton will get out the slow motion to prove that Evan should have won. Hamilton makes money off of Lysacek and that is [...]
Megan Mahdi is a 13 year old skater in the Orange County area. She has started a project called Project Joy Skate A Thon, which raises money for abused and neglected children in Orange County. The next skate a thon is on November 11. If you would like more information about the project or how [...]
Ever wonder what it would be like to figure skate while dodging Hezbollah bombs. Well wonder no more and go read about Israel’s ladie’s skating champion, Tamar Katz. http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20081017&content_id=53570&vkey=ice_news She is training in NYC now, I wonder if they ever repaired her rink in Israel.
I won’t be around for a few days because as I am sure you all already know today is the start of the Southwest Pacific Regional Figure Skating Championships. There are a lot of young skaters eagerly awaiting to hear me cheer myself hoarse for them. I feel so sad for these kids. They have [...]
As part of this evening’s Olympic broadcast, NBC recounted the story of the marathon runner in Athens who, with a 90 second lead, was pulled off the course by a whacko who wanted publicity. Clearly shaken, although he lost the gold he managed to finish with the bronze. He also got a special award for [...]
Waaaa HOO!!! USA women go 1 and 2 in the All Around Gymnastics competition. I am so happy for Nastia Liukin and Shawn Johnson, under incredible pressure they went out, kept their focus and were fantastic!! What a great picture http://news.yahoo.com/nphotos/slideshow/photo//080815/ids_photos_sp/r3188309882.jpg/ And shame on President Bush for not going to the gymnastics competition while he was [...]
I have been a gymnastics fan since Olga Korbut way back in 1972. So when I first started watching gymnastics the US team had no chance of getting a medal let alone a gold one. So on a day like this I am especially happy to see that the US lady’s, Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin, finished [...]
John Derbyshire has an interesting article today about the history of Chinese Olympians http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=MTc1OWYzYWU5YjE3NzRkZjdhNTA5M2QyZmU2OGMyYTg= It reminded me of my favorite Chinese Olympians and one of the greatest skating performances in history. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Kql3sf_crA
This was in today’s NY Post: http://www.nypost.com/seven/06292008/gossip/pagesix/icebreaker_117620.htm OKSANA Baiulisn’t shy. The adorable Olympic gold medalist ice skater stripped down to her skivvies at Wednesday’s YRB Magazine “How You Rock It” party.” “She crashed the fashion shoot going on, so YRB let her get in on the action,” our spy reports. “She made sure everyone in [...]
Over at http://www.gaypatriot.net/ they connected to a story of the usual Howard Dean nonsense about Republican bigotry http://badgerherald.com/news/2008/03/26/dean_future_bleak_fo.php They can’t become more diverse,” Dean said. “Who in their right mind, if they were African American or Hispanic or Asian American, if they were gay or lesbian, would join the Republican Party?” His mentioning Asian Americans [...]
