...randomness surrounding Guided by Voices, Robert Pollard, and other great indie rock bands; a quasi objective look at "my" sporting teams; the random horror film; plus other crap as we see fit...all with a Pittsburgh based feel.

Don't Stop Now Olympics

As I told all my close pals 3 weeks ago, these Olympics are Everything.

A few random things we witnessed and learned over the past few weeks, in no particular:
  • Moguls look painful.
  • MSNBC and CNBC are actual channels I get.
  • If there's an HD variety of MSNBC and CNBC, I don't have it.
  • Chubby guys are most excellent bobsledders.
  • Athletes who compete in Skeleton are slightly more insane than those who compete in Luge.
  • This new sport curling is tremendously tremendous.
  • That blond skier chic on the USA Team is hot.
  • Closing ceremonies: Ogilthorpe f*$ked the last girl on the pinwheel of the lce Stravaganza. It's true. I heard it from a couple guys.
  • Military Patrol = Biathlon.
  • Ice Dancing: would be better if they cut the suits a little higher in the thigh, so you can see more ass.
  • Apolo Ohno seems like a swell dude.
  • Vancouver is a pretty little city.
  • Hockey games and Pierre McGuire can be mutually exclusive.
  • Russian ice dancer dudes, while extremely talented with the twirly whirly move, are sore losers.
  • The "twirly whirly" is an official name of an ice dancing move. Or so I'm told.
  • The Sid haters were left scrambling for new material this morning.
  • Ovechkin is still sitting at the blue line, watching his team get scored on.
  • Ken Hitchcock, in between burgers, was seen hugging Sidney Crosby post Gold-winning goal. You remember Hitchcock. He's the lame turd ex-Flyer coach who started the "Sid Dives" campaign a few years back. He's also jobless right now.
