Bears and Cocks…

Mascots are a common sight at soccer matches. Traditionally, these take the form of cute little children who escort the players onto the pitch to start a match.

Sometimes, as was the case before a game in Russia this weekend, the cute little children are swapped out in favour of a huge fucking bear:

The slave bear , whose name is “Tim” per the BBC, was the guest of honour at Saturday’s third division match between Mashuk-KMV and Angusht.

Now, I agree that a bear’s place should be the freedom in the wild and not “entertaining” dumb humans, but at least he looks healthy and well fed. Regardless, this bizarre spectacle would only make sense in the ferocious land that is Russia.

Now, Tim wasn’t the only animal paraded about on the pitches of Russian soccer last weekend. An angry fan of a second division club decided to register his frustrations with his team’s manager by hurling a live rooster onto the pitch in the middle of a game:

 

Bears and cocks? For being so homophobic, Mother Russia is really gay!!

In short, if this is what a random weekend of lower league soccer in Russia has to offer, I can’t even imagine the chaos awaiting this summer’s World Cup.

Mexican Boxer Destroys American Boxer Wearing Trump Wall Shorts

There’s nothing quite like international sports to play out political turmoil.

Canada vs. Russia or vs.USA Olympic hockey, whenever the Dutch play any of their former African colonies in the World Cup… the list goes on.

Usually, that metaphor hangs silently in the background, but few night ago, it was on full blast, front and centre for all to see.

In the super-featherweight matchup between American “Lightning” Rod Salka and Mexican boxer Francisco Vargas, Salka decided to show up wearing some pretty Trumpian “America 1st” trunks with a brick wall pattern on them. Classic American subtlety.

As you can imagine, pretty much everyone wanted to see his ass handed.

And that’s exactly what happened. So here you go:


Nevertheless, the fight was somewhat competitive, but Francisco wasn’t having that wall… Vargas BATTERED Salka over the next 6 rounds, leaving him bloody and bruised before Salka’s corner threw in the towel between rounds. 

In short, another one of Trump brilliant supporters bit the dust.

Congratulations, Team Canada!

The 2018 Olympic Games are now over.

Canada slid into the third spot for most medal winnings at the 2018 games, but we shattered our own record and took home the most medals EVER for our country.

That’s a major win! 

As we get ready to welcome back our Olympic team of Canadian athletes and champions, I took a look at all the exciting happenings that went down at this year’s Winter Olympic games in Pyeongchang.

Aside from our accomplishments making this our best Olympic year, ever, these are the other note-worthy accomplishments by our Canadian heroes:

  • Eric Radford became the first openly gay athlete in the world to win an Olympic Gold medal.
  • Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue became the most decorated Figure Skating Dance Team in Olympic history.
  • Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris make Olympic history as first-ever Gold medalists in Curling mixed doubles event.
  • Mark McMorris shattered expectations winning Bronze after a staggering list of injuries as a result of crashing into a tree just 11 months before.
  • Meagan Duhamel saves dogs from controversial dog meat industry after winning gold
  • Speedskater Denny Morrison, who nearly died from a motorcycle accident, and suffered a stroke – competed despite expectations he would not make it through.
  • Kelsey Serwa took home a gold medal in snowboarding on her 3rd Olympic venture
  • Mikael Kingsbury wins the gold medal, adding to his list of world records.
  • Kim Boutin, who won 3 medals in her Olympic Debut, named Canada’s flag-bearer for closing ceremonies.
  • Alex Harvery finished 6 seconds short of the podium behind 2 Russians in Cross-country Skiing. This is his athletic retirement.
  • Alex Gough, Sam Edney, Tristan Walker and Justin Snith won the silver medal in Luge.They got their medal, after all the mess regarding Russia. Congrats, boys!

In less than exciting news, Canadian Skiier Dave Duncan, his wife and coach Willy Raine – son of famed Canadian Olympian, Nancy Green-Raine -were all arrested yesterday for stealing a Hummer and driving it while drunk.

They were taken into police custody and released shortly after, and the IOC issued a statement before the 3 made a public apology.

Despite some of the negative and controversial news at the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Games, Canada has much to be proud of.

Congratulations, Team Canada!

The Perfect finale

They came back for the perfect ending.

But in sport as in life, those exits don’t just happen, even to once-in-a-generation talents like theirs, especially in a discipline so vulnerable to the vagaries of judging allegiances.

When Canada’s favourite ice dancers won gold on Tuesday afternoon local time, it was an emotional affair.

This is likely their last Olympics.

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir already had a gold from Vancouver and a silver from Sochi, but came out of retirement in late 2016 for one more shot at an Olympic victory.

On Tuesday, they beat the French team of Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron, who are also their training partners in Montreal. The French skated before the Canadians and scored a world record 123.35 points for a low-key, technically proficient free dance. It gave them a two-dance total of 205.28, another world record.

But the Canadians finished with an extra new world record of 206.07.

Predictably, the Internet was overjoyed

The Olympic gold medals they won are emphatic symbols of their dominance, but more significantly of their relentless pursuit of perfection. Congratulations LEGENDS!

Russia 2018 Welcomes PERU

Nothing, absolute NOTHING unites people like sports do.

Last night Peru won 2-0 over New Zealand, breaking a curse of 35 years (out of the big game) and wining a golden ticket to one of biggest sport events of the planet: the World Cup!

Needles to say, it was an emotional game for Peru and for all South America.

Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile and so on not only broadcast the event, but EVERYONE wore the colours of Peru last night. And that is exactly what makes soccer so amazing, it has the capacity to vanish rivalry and unify nations.

Historically, Peru was at war with Chile and Ecuador, Argentina and Chile hate each other, and also Brazil and Argentina has unresolved issues. Venezuela and Colombia don’t get along, Colombia and Ecuador is just a NO. And Argentine people are the most hated by many due to their superiority complex…

In other words, South America is a big dysfunctional family out of a TELENOVELA where bitches kick and slap left and right. BUT, we all share the same passion for soccer in our blood and that makes us brothers.

Last night South America became one for Peru. It was a historic event.

It took 35 years and 90 minutes to tell the world: We are Peru, and we are back!

Arrivederci Italia, Hallå Sweden!

For the first time since 1958 and only the second time ever, the great comedian of football (soccer,) Italy, is out of the World Cup.

A 0-0 draw with Sweden in the second leg of the European play-off round sealed their fate, after the Azzurri lost 1-0 in the first leg on Friday.

The Italian team is what’s also happening to the Argentine team, rubbish management and players who are long in the tooth.

Argentina qualified by luck that is spelled M.E.S.S.I. plus a rival team that was a joke. Otherwise they would be gone long ago as well.

Anyway, this could be a blessing in disguise for Italy. 

All credit to Sweden who man for man cannot compare with Italy, but they were a team. Which is what you need to play this game.

Pro-ISIS Group Threaten 2018 World Cup

Wafa Media Foundation, a pro-Islamic State (ISIS) group, have released a poster threatening to bring terror to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia that features an image of Barcelona and Argentina star LIONEL MESSI crying blood.

The 2018 World Cup will be played across 11 cities in Russia from June 14 to July 15, when the final will be played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

Now, I guess those terrorist jerks haven’t realised that football (soccer) is the sport king and this is one way to unite the whole world against them.

Also, Russians do not prat around with these people like the West.

Do a Russian down, and you will come second! So, well done bastards.
