[Wednesday Watercooler] Olympics Edition

Standard

Truth  be told, over the last few days I’ve chosen to watch the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show over the Sochi Olympics – but that’s mostly because the Winter games just don’t get me the same way the Summer ones do.  You know: the games in the sand, fun in the sun, half naked sunkissed bodies and basketball; the works! Needless to say, I’m eagerly counting down the days til the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

The Unimpressed Olympian

McKayla Maroney, move over – it looks like the Winter Olympics have met your match, in the form of US figure skater Ashley Wagner.  Over the weekend, she placed forth in a team event and in true internet fashion, the photo has been making its rounds in hilarious fashion.

Dubbin’ It

Thank goodness for video editors and god bless their sense of humor; it seems that the great folks over at Buzzfeed have been splicing and dicing Ice Skating videos with some more…modern…music, and the results are out of this world amazing.  Currently, there are no lyrics allowed in their audio tracks but good news for music aficionados – starting with the 2018 Winter Games in South Korea, lyrical music will be allowed.  So, you’re saying – this might be possible? Yahtzee!

Just Add Cats

I don’t know about you guys, but the only time I’ve actually enjoyed curling as a sport was in the movie ‘Men with Brooms‘ (yes, there was a movie; no, I’m not that embarrassed to admit I saw it).  So, naturally – when I saw this picture of Cat Curling I knew that I’d stumbled across Olympic Gold.

I-Pod’s YOLO Flip wins him the Gold

It seems that the US has finally been usurped when it comes to Snowboarding; Shaun White didn’t have the run he intended on last but the Russian born Swiss Snowboarder  Iouri Podladtchikov, known to friends and family as I-Pod, landed one of the gnarliest tricks I’ve ever seen and is beyond deserving of his gold; much congrats and take a peak at this video from last year to see JUST how insane this flip is!

About missamandapearl

♥ I'm a spunky girl with a big heart and an open mind. I can't ride a bike and dislike capital letters. I'm slightly obsessed with my kitties - Daisy, Stella, Loki and Marley - but I bet if they were yours you would be, too. I laugh all the time - loudly and mostly at myself. my favorite things include, but aren't limited to: fabulous people, my fantastic husband-to-be, traveling, live music, social media, a good read, working out, furry friends, the Golden State Warriors, photography, and sushi. Everyone, including you, looks like an animal - and I won't hesitate to tell you which one. I was born and raised in the 650, spent some of the best years of my life at UCSB as a gaucho and am now a proud angelino; its taken some time, but I effing love└A.
