USA soccer player Abby Wambach took a shot to the face in their 3-opening win, and she’s got a new souvenir to show for it.
Wambach tweeted out this pic a day after the hit.
Here’s the video of the shot:
If you’ve even followed USA soccer remotely, you know that Wambach is as tough as they come. She even scored a goal after this injury, and you can bet she’ll score some more before these Olympic games are done.
The NFL’s most hyped Christian backup quarterback who can’t throw that good, Tim Tebow, is drawing plenty of attention in offseason workouts with his new team, the New York Jets. Tebow’s new teammates apparently think that Tebow’s wholesome Christian values and his opposition to premarital sex are all a big joke as they openly mocked their virginal backup in front of media members.
They did this by chanting “Lolo” at Tebow. You see, Lolo Jones is a female American Olympian (track & field) who went on HBO to talk about the difficulties of being a virgin. The Olympian then heard about the chant, and said she would be willing to do the nasty with Tebow, but only if he preferred chocolate milk to regular milk. No, seriously. She tweeted: “Ask Tebow if he wants a glass of milk. If he says yes, ask him if he prefers chocolate. if he says no, then no more Tebow date suggestions.”
Saturday will bring the Men’s Snowboard GS competition and a good Winter Olympics betting opportunity. While the Giant Slalom competition isn’t as nearly as high profile as the halfpipe event that Shaun White dominated last week, it does present a good opportunity for Canada to win a gold medal. Unlike the halfpipe competition, which is dominated by American riders the other two snowboarding events–GS and snowboard cross–aren’t. Why this is the case isn’t exactly clear–probably the best explanation is that the many excellent US snowboarders are more interested in the halfpipe and free riding. That’s where all of the money, fame, notoriety, sponsorships, chicks, etc typically can be found in snowboarding. No one makes snowboarding films about slalom events, after all…
WINTER OLYMPICS–MEN’S SNOWBOARD GIANT SLALOM:
I used to love the Winter Olympics but I really haven’t been able to get into the Vancouver games. The one good thing I see so far is that people are starting to take notice of curling, which combines something mildly interesting with the bizarre awesomeness of listening to a Canadian commentator’s rapture describing the strategy and intrigue of a game played primarily with brooms.
Speaking of things I sort of love but don’t really watch, there’s that adorable scamp David Letterman. While Letterman did have the best commercial of the Super Bowl, the last time I thought about him was to wonder if he had made a pass at my former roommate who interned for him when she was a senior in college.
Now worlds collide as I have found video of a recent Late Show Top 10 list devoted to curling. Most of it is shameful curling bashing, but numbers two and three made me laugh. Enjoy:
