This Is What I’m On About

I’ve been boycotting the Beijing Olympics because, well, the whole thing’s a giant sham meant to legitimize a horrendous, totalitarian regime. Seems like ESPN’s Rick Reilly agrees with me. I’d offer a blockquote from the story, except it’s one giant image, so let this pullquote from the beginning suffice, then head over and read the whole thing:

She Probably Should Have Played Some More SSX

I know that when I’m playing SSX, I have to be certain to land my tricks before hitting the ground, otherwise I’ll fall. Apparently American Olympian Lindsey Jacobellis didn’t get the memo:

Coasting to what should have been an easy victory, the American grabbed her board on the way to the finish line. It caused her to fall and while she scrambled to her feet, Switzerland’s Tanja Frieden sped past and became the first champion in the strange and wild sport of Olympic women’s snowboardcross Friday.

Whoops.
