It’s no wonder the Cuban men’s field hockey team was smoked 13-0 by Trinidad and Tobago during the current Pan Am Games in Toronto Canada. Half of them didn’t show up for the match as they all defected to the United States. They weren’t the only Cubans to defect during the event either, as four rowers also defected earlier on in the week. Sources stated that eight members of the 16-man field hockey team fled the country while one of the members said just seven of them took off.
With half of the team going AWOL, Cuba managed to field just eight players for the game against Trinidad. This means they played three men short for the contest as a team is made up of 11 players along with five more on the substitute’s bench. All eight players had to play the entire game, but at least they showed up for the fans instead of mailing the game in and losing it by default.
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…
