'If you donít think what I do is not hard, youíre a damn idiot'
Daily Mail ^ | Feb 15, 2014 | Daily Mail reporter

US figure-skating champion Jeremy Abbott lashed out at his critics in a foul-mouthed rant after his and teammate Jason Brown's spectacular slump at the Sochi Olympics.

Olympic champion Evan Lysacek did not defend his title and Abbott and pony-tailed teen Brown failed to sparkle in the Iceberg Skating Palace, to leave the United States off the men's podium for the first time since the 1998 Nagano Games.

What if you think what he does isn’t a sport?

linear algebra is hard, but nobody is awarding olympic medals for it.

Saw the headline and thought it was a vanity from one of our resident economic experts.

It is hard and requires many hours of training and hard work.

But, so what?

Is there money in it? Does it result in commercial endorsements and a long-term cashflow stream?

No.

It is adults with more muscles, longer limbs and more stamina pretending they are children.

Jeremy, cry me a river.
Do what soldiers do, then get back to me.

If you think what he does is hard, then you’re an idiot? If he says so.

At least linear algebra makes sense and has real world value.

Put on a uniform and join a combat patrol in Afghanistan.

Until then - STFU and realize how easy/good you have it.

Joe Biden has served this country for over 40 years so when he says he's not uninterested in seeking the presidency, it shouldn't be a no-brainer to refuse to disbelieve him.

Biden won't just not undermine the economy. He would oppose all efforts to negate unemployment. He's on the record against not blocking anti-progressive legislation that doesn't not destabilize working families.

"I'm Joe Biden and I don't not fully and especially not partially endorse this message, you have no compelling reason not to vote for the opposite of me."

Yes poor grammar but he works hard to create beauty. Nothing wrong with that. It’s more fun to watch than curling or IMHO speed skating.

NBC has made a complete hash of these Olympics.

Between the “Russia is a totalitarian State!” and “Putin is a SCROUNDREL!” rhetoric, they created a bunch of sports “celebrities” out of thin air, that they have pimped endlessly for over a month, to gin interest in watching.

Now they seem shocked that these athlete “Celebs” aren’t delivering the goods.

I’m a rightwing producer in Hollywood who everyday, deals with faggots, Dumocraps and liberals. I have to discipline myself NOT to strangle and tell them to F*** off. Never said Jeremy yours was hard but if mine is “easy” then quit acting like a drama queen in your sissy sport, mkay?
