It's a good night when both Chicago and Boston get spanked by Canadian teams (the Canucks' victory over the Bruins was particularly sweet!)

Are we talking unheard of for most of the world or unheard of for Russia?

ok, so on the whole superbowl thing: i kept hearing that one team was like the ultimate best offensive team and the other was the ultimate best defensive team, but i don't remember which was which - so which one won, the offensive guys or the defensive guys?

Broncos were supposed to have the super offense, they lost 43-8.

And now, it seems, the Russian Government has hacked a gay dating app. The following message appeared on the screens of people using the app:

Quote:
You will be arrested and jailed for gay propaganda in Sochi according to Russian Federal Law #135 Sektion 6

Seattle was the big defensive team and they steam rolled Denver's "super" offense. I have never seen Peyton Manning that rattled. It was pretty much like watching the Harlem Globetrotters play the Washington Generals.

So I caved and I am watching the Olympic opening ceremonies (namely because other people in my house are) and two things stuck out as they marched the flags in:

1) The USA is the home of the 'ugly sweater' and we want to make sure everyone knows it.

2) The camera cut to Putin as the Ukraine delegation came out, he didn't look up.

Everybody was expecting a hefty fine and a suspension at least, but it turns out L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been banned from the NBA for life for being a racist douchenozzle. He'll have to sell his stake in the team and pay $2.5 million dollars, which will be donated to anti-discrimination causes.

A paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that fans watching their team play in the World Cup were three times more likely to have a heart attack when their team played than on other days. Except of course for the English whose hearts and hopes were ripped from their chests long ago.

Viva la furia roja
