Torino: WTF?

Everyone! Everyone! It's the Olympics! What excitement!

Oh, wait, the
Winter Olympics? Never mind, that doesn't sound very exciting. Curling? Ice dancing?? Cross-country skiing while carrying a rifle??? WTF?

I, for one, would be more excited if the feature sports like ice skating featured hot women that were, say, older than 15. I just can't seem to get excited about 15-year olds in skin-tight leotards. That's probably a good thing. At least Michelle Kwan is legal.

Anyway, my favorite sports writer has a good column today about the "mood" of Torino:

Bode Miller, the official American magazine cover subject of the 2006 Winter Games, is not staying in the village because he doesn’t see it as a “healthy living environment.” This is a guy who slid down at a mountain at 80 mph while drunk.

Eventually, Joe does find the mood of Torino:

They haven’t exactly finished all the Olympic projects — like, you know, the subway — but the general feeling seems to be: “Hey, it’s too late to worry about that now. Let’s drink some wine and smoke.” In fact, that’s the mood here — “Let’s Drink Some Wine and Smoke.” There have been worse mottos.

Read what else Joe Posnanski has to say here.


  • Are you seriously complaining about underage femeil ice skaters?

    What about us women? All we have to salivate over are gay-ass motherfuckers in tights, sequins and clown makeup doing pirouettes.

    Well, I don't watch figure skating anyway. Looks painful.

  • And what the fuck does swimmerpie3331 stand for? Sounds like "cowpie" but "swimmerpie" seems even grosser, at least for the other people in the pool.
