I Think I Like Figure Skating Now

The figure skating judging world is tough. Take Russian figure skater Ekaterina Rubleva and her partner, Ivan Shefer, who despite their best efforts were unable to place higher than 12th during the European Championships, even with Rubleva finishing their routine with one of her breasts hanging out.

The judges weren’t impressed, scoring the duo only a 29.04. I wonder why Shefer isn’t so shocked, or interested, in the inadvertent boob showing. I know that if I were ice skating with someone and her boob popped out, I’d probably acknowledge it in some manner. Probably with hooting and maybe a bike horn. But then, that’s me…

After the jump the NSFW version.

That’s A Good Way to Get Better Calls

Marat Safin, while playing in the Hopman Cup tournament in Perth, Australia accidentally drills the net judge with an errant return. Most players would just ignore it and move on, but not Safin, he understands that getting the judges on your side always helps, so he runs up and gives the judge a kiss. I really like how much she enjoys the kiss, clearly Safin’s charms were not lost on the judge.

Unfortunately, one kiss wasn’t enough and Safin lost in the finals of the tournament. Next time I suggest slipping the judge some tongue…

A Post-Inaugural Doppelganger

Ric Flair was one of the most famous, most successful wrestlers of all-time, known for his boa topped costumes, his high flying acrobatic work off the ropes and his signature “WOOOOOOOOOOO.” Finishing his career with 16 title “wins” across multiple wrestling leagues, Flair was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2008. Joe Biden yesterday took the oath of office for the Vice-Presidency, taking a 30+ year career in Washington and subjugating himself for the next 8 years to the office about which John Adam famously said, “My country has in its wisdom contrived for me the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived or his imagination conceived.” Despite their seemingly many differences, the team men share quite the resemblance.

As ever, check out the rest of our awesome doppelgangers HERE, and be sure to exercise your franchise and VOTE in the poll below so that these doppelgangers can join the others.

ESPN Fails

ESPN must be trying really hard to make sure that their Sunday Baseball broadcasts are watched with the sound down next season. Watching the games was hard enough already with just Joe Morgan and Jon Miller, there is only so much inane talk that can be withstood; but ESPN is announcing today that they will be adding a third man into the booth, Steve Phillips.

The same Phillips who was fired as the Mets’ GM, the same Steve Phillips who has broadcast games for about two years on ESPN and is yet to add a cogent point, the same Steve Phillips who adds NOTHING to every baseball segment he’s been a part of since he joined ESPN. Sounds like a good plan to me!

Now, the Sunday games, which are supposed to be the biggest showcase of the game will feature a broadcasting team that will be completely unlistenable, I wonder if the Nielsen’s can register that the sound is down? What ever happened to the removing of Morgan from Sundays? Is there truly no god?
