The Night We Taught the Russians Manners
Well up until this morning I was hoping for a somewhat closer game, because I've always liked the way the Russians play.
But then I read this story.
We all know Canada has problems with the future lines drawn on Arctic maps and we all know Canada lives in the shadow of its larger neighbour to the south. The abject cruelty shown by Canadian soldiers in international conflicts is scantily referred to, as indeed is the utter incapacity of this county to host a major international event, due to its inferiority complex, born of a trauma being the skinny and weakling bro to a beefy United States and a colonial outpost to the United Kingdom, whose Queen smiles happily from Canadian postage stamps.
"Maybe it is this which makes the Canadians so...retentive, or cowardly."
And I changed my mind. Because nobody should write when they're that drunk. Or be that rude.
Especially if you come from a fascist, homophobic, backward country like Russia.
So now when I read this ...
Everybody who knows anything about Olympic skating, Winter Olympic sports and international politics will infer from the pitiful and dangerous conditions provided by the Canadian authorities, which already caused one death, that Vancouver is mutton dressed as lamb. Take off the outer veneer and the stench is horrific.
It is a surprise that any Russian athlete would wish to remain in that sort of environment for a second longer.
I say OK no problem. You can send your hockey team home now.
And take this bad loser with you.
Because he REALLY stinks.
Oh yeah.... and one more thing eh?
I LOVE the smell of mutton in the morning
And more vodka please...
P.S. I hate it when I see people waving those signs "Hockey is OUR game." Because do the English, who invented soccer, do that when they play the Brazilians? And yahoos give me a headache whether they're Russians or Canadians.
But I have to admit that when we skate, check, pass, and score like we can. And we tell the goons to stay home. We do play it better than ANYONE...
