And Another Thing


Hey, look! It's the Winter Olympics!

Time now for the Blob's first Winter Olympic Report, in which we'll be keeping track of how many Swedes achieve manned flight in the luge, how many Swiss fall down a mountain and how many Norwegians, Russians, Estonians and Canadians wind up in a multi-lingual pig pile in short-track speedskating:

Things are already off to a rough start, it seems. Vancouver has no snow to speak of, to start with. And 30 Olympians have been booted even before the lighting of the torch for testing positive for banned substances.

My reaction to the first: Move the Games to D.C. They've got so much snow you could stage the downhill on the Mall, starting from the top of Abe Lincoln's head.

My reaction to the second: Wonder if anyone in curling got busted. Those broom guys are sooo 'roided up these days.
