I can tell from the Twitter blather that Team USA must have won something in hockey that some people are excited about. While I still hate the Olympics I find some of the comic responses to the Olympics and Team USA’s victory hilarious.
better olympic narratives • needs pure gold from medal to save dying spouse • in curling contest for immortal soul • skis are actually feet
Ineffectual attempt to get divorced parents back together • Chasing dream of starring in local furniture store commercial in ten years
better olympic narratives • actually snowboarding to save community center from developers • little white lie on first date has gone too far
better olympic narratives • back half of horse costume took a wrong turn • deep undercover narcotics agent • trying to outski her past
Lost hunter accidentally wins biathlon. • Training for Gymkata II: This Time It’s In Snow?
• country ceased to exist mid-ski jump à la Tom Hanks in The Terminal
Believes winning gold medal will lead to an audience with Zeus
And then @JoshGreenman mocks the hyper-patriotism of the reaction to Team USA’s hockey victory by posting these wonderfully ironic paintings from Etsy
