Now I’ve always been a fan of the Olympics. I think its remarkable what some of these athletes do. However, I’d really like to know who invented some of these events. I mean seriously…
Some of these events truly have me wondering..and honestly Im actually a bit confused.
Ice Skating, Skiing and Speedskating… I deal with. But curling?
Who…. invented….. Curling…. and Why? To me it looks like a big ass hockey puck and a swiffer. I mean.. #cmonson
Now lets talk about Luge. Who said it was okay to fit ur ass on some piece of plastic and just slide… and did I mention that your toes have to be turned IN! Yall know as a dancer , I can’t stand a sickled foot! The only reason I would do the luge is to wear those cute ass American one pieces! I know for a FACT , I’d look stunning in one of them. I would have to add some glitter or sequins or something though.
But, despite all of this madness, the award for the WTF Event goes to the biathlon… HANDS DOWN! Athletes ski for a while and then shoot targets, then ski some more and shoot more targets. Maybe its me, but what the hell is that about! #wheretheydothatat Is the Olympic Committee drunk? They would have to be in order to approve some of these events. Or who’s “doing favors” to get these events recognized? The jig is all the way up. #sideye
What baffles me even more, is the fact that people are dead serious about these sports! People train years for these events!
This is clearly one thing I may never understand, but before I go, I have come to this theory: Most of these events were created out of sheer boredom. There was nothing else to do because it was too damn cold, so hey why not make up some foolishness and call it a sport?.
Maybe we should all be inspired by the events at the Winter Olympics, when life hands you snow and boredom, just figure out something to do with it and maybe one day it’ll get recognized on a worldwide scale.
The Gumbo’s good aint it?
But save room…
