Will they never learn? Recently another blogger posted 5 questions about the ongoing 2014 Winter Olympics, and sports in general, for readers to answer. I tried my best to be serious…really I did. I almost had it posted when that little gremlin that sits on my shoulder erased it and posted this instead:
1. Q. Have you watched or do you plan to watch any of the 2014 Olympics?
A. No. And I won’t until they make Synchronized Bobsledding an Olympic sport.
2. Q. What is your favorite winter Olympic event? Would you ever want to be an expert in that sport?
A. Avalanche Avoidance – mixed pairs. I could easily be the expert official that starts the avalanche with my 12 gauge.
3.Q. Have you ever met an Olympic athlete?
Yes. My great-nephew is a track star for Olympic High School in Bremerton, Washington.
4. Q. Do you have a favorite athlete? Name sport.
A. Toss up between Lance Armstrong and Alex Rodriguez. The sport: Individual injecting of performance enhancing drugs – dominant butt cheek only.
5. What is your favorite exercise or sport? Is there a reason why?
A. Making wall shadow puppets. I am the reigning world champion in the category of “professional wall puppeteers.” Here is my winning entry from last year:
What about dog chasing? Funny post from my humorous Cyber pal–the Great and magnifico Al.
It’s a probationary event this year. If people really like it, they’ll include it as an event in 2018. Frankly, I’d rather see it with wolves.
But just imagine the poo those in the rear will have to dodge. Talk about incentive to be the leader of the pack!
You should be a sports commentator. I watched some snow board event, and I don’t think they could update any dictionary fast enough to tell me what the reporters were saying, but they were certainly excited. I turned off the programme before the end so I don’t know who won !
You are right, ducks. They have added so many esoteric sports to the Olympics that old folks like myself have to run to a sports encyclopedia to find out what we’re watching. As for being a commentator, I don’t think you’d want that profession set back that many years.
What in God’s name is that bunny doing????? You perv.
This is the animal equivalent of a HJ. (C’mon, you asked for that one.)
Some say the Olympics is ‘so over.’ You say ‘move over’ and make way for new sports. How about those snow boarders…is that what they’re called? I don’t do sports. Dianne
The addition of “off the wall” events has really diluted the Olympics. I guess it’s a “now generation” event anymore.
Dear little read writing Hood, I like the tagline andother chqnges you have made.
As for this Olympic Post it is Wunderbar! Pure gold if you ask me!
Thanks, Marie. Like I said, I tried to be serious, but how boring would that be?
Thanks for the laugh out loud moment! 🙂 Great answers.
Thanks Jennifer. Just me fulfilling my promise to find the humor in everyday life.
Number 3 is sublime. You should be on the International Olympics Committee. You’d give curling a run for its money.
If I was on the IOC, I assure you I would have Rowan Atkinson appear in every opening ceremony….no matter what country hosts.
Inspired! See – you should be President for Life.
Yes. What a shame we already have one of those.
Avalanche Avoidance sounds like a thriller. Surely it will be added to the games in the near future. I hope you didn’t strain anything doing those amazing shadow puppet tricks. Have you heard Jerry Seinfeld’s Olympic comedy? His favorite is the bobsled, what sled? That’s just Bob…
His version is funnier, that’s why he gets primetime and I’m still writing a blog.
You probably don’t know this but I was an uncredited writer for the Seinfeld Show. I didn’t want all the money and notoriety to affect my simple lifestyle. I’ve managed that pretty well don’t you think?
