*insert mic in your face*
Actually just overheard by an Olympics reporter to a figure skater... "How disappointed are you that you didn't make the top four?"

"Well let's see you dumb blonde bitch...I've only trained like 3/4 of my freakin' life for this... I get up around 4 a.m. every day. When do you get up again? I spend about eight hours of my day on ice. On ICE. I haven't felt my friggin' toes since sometime around, oh say, 1994. I'm in UTAH. Hello!? My skirt flops up and shows my ass in all its glory on international television, I'm so sick of glitter I could puke, and you don't even wanna know where I lost a sequin last week. Let's see you put on a plastic smile while your body is being tossed in the air at 50 mph, as you do half of your routine with a metal blade in your face. Oh yeah, my partner's breath smells like the inside of his skate -- and I'm getting really damn tired of seeing him in spandex. What were you saying again? Oh right... It's an honor just to be nominated. Or something like that... Where was I? What would Brian Boitano do? Probably take that stick used to whack Kerrigan and shove it up your..."

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Oh yeah, baby! I think Robyn should be the permanent color commentator for the Olympic Games. Can I get a witness?

I really miss splitting cheap bottles of champagne with my girlfriends into the wee hours of the night during the Olympics back in college. It was a free-for-all during figure skating and gymnastics...just ask Todd about the condensed-form reenactments he gets now... ;-)

If there was any T&A on it, don't you think I would have put it up on the web already? Sheesh, I never get credit for anything around here. I *do* think ahead sometimes...

Here in Australia we don't have much snow and we have a grand total of 27 in our team. We've won TWO, yes TWO winter medals, both bronze. Last night after the opening ceremony one of our commentators was saying how great our team was, and that one of our male figure skaters had a really good chance of skating in the finals. That was his goal. So he's gonna make the top what? 40? While we may kick ass in summer in the pool, on the snow and the ice we're pretty crappy LOL! But when you only have snow in a dozen places in the country for about 3 months a year and not much set up for elite athletes, guess you can't expect a great deal. Serves us right for having such a toasty warm country :)

You go, Rob! Geez. It's bad enough you train yo ass for years for the medal... and not make top 4. Shaddup, bitch is right!

now, see, if the world had more empathy like yours, it would be a much better place.
