Senator Carl Lewis?

April 11, 2011

Carl Lewis

CARL LEWIS

Former Olympic great Carl Lewis officially started his political career Monday. Lewis announced his candidacy for the New Jersey state Senate. Lewis tied an all-time record with nine Olympic medals. He was undoubtedly one of the greatest track and field athletes in history.

Despite his Olympic success, Lewis never caught on with the public. He was goose egged in endorsements, many believe because of rumors of his homosexuality. Lewis was also tied to performance enhancing drugs though he never tested positive during the Olympics. Personal scandal? Being called “arrogant” and egotistical? Unliked by the mass public? Sounds like perfect political material.

Iran threatens Olympic boycott over secret Zionist logo

February 28, 2011

Iran is threatening to boycott the 2012 Olympics in London, because…wait for it…they claim the logo for the games is “racist.” The head of the Iranian Olympic Committee not only says the London Olympic logo is racist, but also secretly spells out the word “Zion.”

The IRNA head urged other Muslim nations to boycott the 2012 Olympics as well. Previously, the logo had only been called “a national embarrassment” and its designers had been accused of “drinking on the job.”

Now the logo is apparently part of an international Zionist conspiracy.

D’OH! CANADA: PRIME MINISTER WITH HIS BEER BOOTY

President Barack Obama has paid off a bet with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The pair had wagered a case of beer on the outcome of the Olympic gold medal hockey game between the U.S. and Canada. The Canadian prime minister received an extra case of Yuengling (in addition to the agreed upon Molson) following Canada’s victory.

OH, CANADA!

Thank you, Sid The Kid! Despite almost blowing the game by giving up a last-second goal in regulation, Canada closed the 2010 Winter Olympics by winning the gold medal in hockey. Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby put in the game winning goal in overtime to give Canada a 3-2 victory over Team USA.

The game-winning goal followed a miracle score by Zach Parise of Team USA. Parise, who plays for the NHL’s New Jersey Devils, scored with just 24 seconds left to send the game into overtime by beating Canadian goalie Roberto Luongo. Luongo, who plays for the Olympic hometown Vancouver Canucks, ended up being the game winning goalie anyway with Crosby’s score.

Wow, talk about a double standard! The latest manufactured media story is the fake outrage being directed at the Canadian women’s hockey team.

At least one of the Canadian players drinking after the game was underaged. Newsapers throughout Canada and the world have expressed outrage.

JOHNNY WEIR FORCED TO RESPOND TO RUMORS THAT HE’S A WOMAN OR EVEN *GASP!* HETEROSEXUAL

JOHNNY WEIR

A pair of idiot Canadian announcers from Quebec are in trouble after making homophobic comments against flamboyant American figure skater Jonny Weir. The announcers said he was a “poor example” for other skaters and even suggested he be forced to undergo gender identity testing.

In response, Weir felt compelled to hold a press conference to state that he IS a man.

Weir did make some rather open ended comments that might be interpreted to mean he’s slept with women (below video.) This follows an ESPN.com article that flat out states Weir may be STRAIGHT heterosexual.

HOCKEY FANS: STFU ABOUT OLYMPIC TV COVERAGE

February 23, 2010

Here are two BRUTAL stories if you’re a hockey fan. First, the tv ratings are out for Sunday’s epic USA/Canada hockey game. It’s not pretty for those of you who were screaming that the game should have been shown on NBC. The game actually drew barely HALF as many viewers as the ESPN telecast of the Pro Bowl three weeks ago. That’s right. An exhibition football game drew twice as many viewers as the biggest hockey game in 30 years.

Also, there is a report that the NHL may be leaving the Atlanta market in favor of returning to Winnipeg. Successful sports don’t abandon the U.S./Atlanta market in favor of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
