Canada irate over USA winning the Ice Dance competition.

by Jon Henseler

Whaaaaaaa the Americans are cutting side deals! Whaaaaaa they paid judges! Whaaaaaa we got screwed! Yeah no duh bro. Of course we bought the gold medal. Last time I checked the Olympics were big kid sports. And if Ted Dibiase taught us anything it's that victory in big kid sports belongs to the highest bidder. Grow up and put on your big boy pants.

Now as we went over in the TJ Oshie blog, I really couldn't care less about any winter Olympic sport outside of hockey. But I think my sneaky favorite part of the Sochi games is butthurt Canadians and Europeans crying about how America is cheating. Like this dude did an almost NINE MINUTE rant on ice dancing. Ice dancing! And I have to admit, I love his passion. I'm not sure I've cared about anything as much as he cares about ice dancing. And he sort of won me over with the Godfather 2 reference. By the end of this thing I was pretty pissed off about how corrupt ice dancing has apparently been since the late 1970's. But this video more than anything properly highlights the difference between America and the rest of the world when it comes to the Olympics. Like yeah, we watch and want to win the total medal count, but we don't get thisinvested in international competition. This guy is trying to become the Woodward and Bernstein of ice dancing meanwhile 97% of the United States didn't even know ice dancing was a sport let alone that we 'stole' a gold medal. Like take a Xanax or something and chill out Sid. We're talking about ice dancing. Ice dancing.

PS: How about Russia losing to Finland this morning! I've gotta be honest I was sort of rooting for a rematch between USA and Russia in the gold medal game. Ah well I suppose. And you know those Russian players and discount triple checking their plane before they get on. Wouldn't put it past Putin to put the Costanza Plan in action.
