And the latest -

Short Track

Althought it had nothing to do with Russia, they have decied they will whine on behalf of the Korean and Chinese teams anyways.


Unable to handle that other countries may be better than them, Russia voluntarily pulled out of the event, realizing it was the only way they could preserve any dignity.

Cross Country Skiing

The Russian Federation has decided to file a protest, that doped athletes have every right to compete. "Just because an athlete tests positive for a certaint offense, doesn't mean they are guilty. Since when have athletes been disqualified for doping? This is an outrage - it has never happened in sport before, and only happened now, cause everyone hates Russia", said a respresentitive of the Russian Olympic Committee.

Ice Hockey

In another attempt to preserve their diginity, the Russian hockey team has started whining about bad calls and reffing, before the game has even began. This way, if they lose to the USA tonight - they already have an excuse. As it could't possibly be that the American team might have a shot at beating them legitimately.

Thanks ys - that was a real hoot.

Figure Skating

ISU rejected Russian protest for Women skating competition. The case could not be compared to Pair Skating case because Irina Sloutskaya hasn't actually cried all night after the free program.

General Olympics

Russians, who criticized the Canadian pair in fighting for a fair ruling in figure skating turn out to be hypocrites by doing the same thing when an injustice is done to them. The only difference is, the Canadians handled it with grace.

VSFan1 aka Joshua L.- Very well said. Thanks for that "breaking news" ;)

Its also worth noting, that not only do the Canadians handle it with grace, but them and their compatriots do not find it necesary to insult the Russian skater in the process.

Breaking news....

Everyone Hates Russia

Yes, its been declared true. Even the several billion people in the World who don't know it yet, even the ones who aren't aware of where Russia is - all hate Russia.
It is suspected that all parties will become aware of this at a conference being held just before the closing ceremonies. The IOC felt it would be best to let everyone know before hand so that they could boo the Russian team as loud as possible at the closing ceremonies.
For if they had not known beforehand, spectators and the other teams may have mistakenly treated the Russian team just like everyone else- as they had wrongly been doing the whole Olympics.

For countries that are not broadcasting the closing ceremonies, the IOC will fly airplanes overhead and drop fliers to ensure that all citizens of earth are aware of their new, previously unknown hatred.
