Olympic thoughts

July 30, 2012
  • Japanese gymnast Kohei Uchimura (three-time world champ) has some really hairy armpits:

Or maybe it’s just that his hair is so dark.

  • These are the 30th Summer Olympics, so naturally NBC lists their coverage as “XXX Summer Olympics.”

I can’t be the only one who finds that amusing. Did nobody think maybe to skip the Roman numerals this one time?

Oh, those wacky Dutch. Betcha this turns out to be some kind of marketing scheme.

  • Those of you who didn’t look up to watch “Queen Elizabeth” skydiving for fear of looking up her dress…you needn’t have worried:

God save the queen. And get her a razor for her five o’clock shadow.

The stuntperson who was featured during that showstopping moment in Friday night’s Opening Ceremony when Queen Elizabeth jumped out of a helicopter with James Bond was a better actor than you ever knew. A closer look reveals it was a man dressed as the queen and pulling the cord on the parachute.

  • And, finally, the Olympic Picture of the Day:

That’s Matiss Burgis, from Latvia, who does not appear to be keeping his eye on the ball.
