Somehow Vladimir Putin Scores Six Goals in an Amateur Hockey Game (21-4 rout)
The Wire ^ | 05/11/14 | Adam Chandler

Posted on 05/12/2014 11:08:29 AM PDT by nhwingut

You'll be shocked to know that Russian President Vladimir Putin led his team to victory in an exhibition hockey game in Sochi last night. Putin scored six goals and five assists in a 21-4 rout.

The match wasn't entirely devoid of the Ukrainian crisis context. Before the game there was a moment of silence for pro-Russian separatists killed the day in the town of Mariupol. But then Putin hit the ice.

The man in that photo is wearing a shirt, how do we know it is actually him?

I’d like to see the Whiner-in-Chief attempt this. With 20 Secret Service folks skating beside and running interference for him, he should do well. That is, if he could stand on skates...

That’s nothing, Kim Jong-Il never skated before and still scored 10 goals in his first hockey game.

Whatever you may think of Putin, or Obama, Putin projects the image of a “Man’s Man”, while Obama projects the imagine of a pansy Metrosexual.

And the whole world notes the difference.
One is respected, the other is laughed at. It isn’t tough to figure out which is which.

On the one hand, there was no danger of him getting seriously checked, and there is every incentive to pass the goal to him when he was in position.

On the other hand, he was willing to show off his skating and stick handling skills in front of thousands of people, which is quite the contrast to Kim Jung Il’s golf outings.

Can you see Obama putting on skates? He'd probably have to have training wheels.

It’s even more than the “man’s man” thing. How can ANYONE respect the leader of ANY country who obviously doesn’t like his country very much? The insanity of electing such a person to the highest office in the land is only now being realized by the vast majority of Americans.

You can't be this gullible.

This would be the equivalent of President Obama playing in an amateur basketball league in Chicago and scoring 100 points.

There’s nothing wrong with Putin trying to create a Legend for himself.Afterall Obama has been doing the same thing for the last six years and failing miserably at it.

Obama and Putin are mirror images of each other.

I do understand, that in North Korean hockey, what awaits you in the penalty box is different than what you see elsewhere.

Did you know that Kim Jung Il invented the Zamboni?

At 61, he’s fit and plays better than men half his age.

Turns out he’s a talented amateur hockey player to score six goals!

Half the goals were short-handed, even while Putin was wearing one of those movement-restricting shirt things!

Vlad has no ups; can’t play basketball. On the other hand, I’ll bet he’s played some hockey in his life and knows his way around the rink, even if he’s not Evegeni Malkin. Unlike 0bama, who probably does not skate well.

I would like to see Putin check 0bama on the boards. 0bama would probably wet himself.

And lets not forget the media narative over Michelle, the perpetually vacationing moose.

How we have been bombarded endlessly about "The lovely First Lady", her "wonderfully toned arms", and "her exquisite sense of style".

As if we were all blind.

He would have gotten more goals obviously, if he had not had to wrestle the Kodiak Bear that was continuously attacking him... He defeated that animal by simply staring it to death, but it was already well into the third period by that point...

and then there was the little matter of fighting off half of Ukraine while on the ice, in the Second period.

Putin does not project being a “man’s man” to me, while he doesn’t appear to a practicing homosexual, NONE of us have EVER seen a man so desperate to appear as “manly”.

In his own way, Putin is every bit as gay as Obama, I could never associate with a guy so unsure of his masculinity as the shirtless one, with all of his costume poses, and super hero antics.

I’ve always thought that Putin has a Napoleon complex. He’s 5’5, wears lifts on his shoes and does everything he can to make himself look taller. Dude’s shorter than Napoleon.
