Happy Singles Awareness Day, y'all.
Tho I rarely ever disagree with the lad, this time I actually gotta give a shout out and paraphrase Pat Stack. Y'know dude, you are absolutely correct, the Hellympics do suck without Jaime Salé.
Only other 2 Winter Ga(y)mes observations do I have to make at this point:
a) Ted Ligety on a slalom run is pure bottled sex.
b) Dick Button is a tool. And not a useful one, either. More like that annoying, worthless rounded-out 5/16" box-end roaming round the bottom of the tray that you're too cheap/lame/stupid to pitch... despite that both yer bicycles AND cars take metrics. Fercrissakes, dude just STFU.

First one made me laugh. Only along the Front Range would one find healthy litter lying in a vacant lot, as opposed to busted 40s. Looks like hippies are just as bad about finding the bin as the gangbangers are.
I have a theory why Denver's music scene AND the urban art scene both suck: it's cos the weather's just too damned nice here. Seriously, everyone here is just too busy playing outside to be snarky and miserable, hence no one develops that pent-up, wrist-slitting level of black despair that months on end of utterly wretched weather will provide. Therefore the true edge for creativity, lacks. This goes a long way towards explaining why Manchester, U.K. has consistently produced a high level of musical talent for nigh on 40 years.
Here's a small taste of the lame-arse tags that pass for urban blight around these parts.
I call this the 'eh, hell with it man, it's too pretty outside to be all pissed off, let's go snowboard or something...' school of design:
Bedtime for Bonzo,
