Some readers told me I should root for Team USA because it’s patriotic to do so and they stand for our country. But, as I’ve noted, they don’t. Many are a bunch of overpaid, spoiled professionals who have no allegiance to America, other than what their phony patriotism can earn them in endorsements or chicks or what have you.
Two examples of Team USA that should not make anyone proud–in fact, they are embarrassments–are Scotty Lago and the USA Women’s Hockey Team. Their behavior reminds me of the USA Hockey Team, back in 1998, when Chris Chelios and Brett Hull smashed furniture and trashed their rooms at the Nagano Winter Olympics. Plus they whined about accommodations because they did not have giant suites and First Class plane tix. Lago and the women hockey players weren’t as bad. But close enough.
Lago, who won a Bronze Medal in the halfpipe snowboarding event, was asked by the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association to leave the Olympic village and go home because of photos like this which he posed for while partying over his third place finish. Disgusting. And he, of course, is wearing his official Team USA T-shirt just for the occasion. That ho posing for the pic needs to fumigate her mouth. And he needs to fumigate that medal. I can see a new endorsement deal in the works . . . for Lysol.
Then there’s the chick (at least they say they’re women, but only their doctor knows for sure) hockey team. No-one wants to watch women play hockey . . . except Janet Napolitano, if ya know what I mean. It’s long, it’s boring, and, well . . . no-one wants to watch women play hockey. Just like no-one wants to watch women play fake pro basketball.
But that’s not what bothers me. What bothers me is the sore loser whine-fest of these women when they lost to Canada, for the second Winter Olympics in a row. Boo-hoo. They lost and bawled on the awards stand like classless two-year-olds whose blankie was just stolen. Embarrassing. Grow up. A buncha crybabies. It’s not like you lost in a sport anyone cared about anyway. Or that anyone was watching.
Memo to the USA Gyno-Hockey Squad: If you’re gonna act like men, act like men.
