Where’s Whoopsie #9: O-lame-pics

Why were David Gleirscher, Chris Mazdzer, and Johannes Ludwig sad at the Olympics?

…They knew that even with all their medals, after two weeks they’d be back to being just a regular bunch of lugers like the rest of us!*

Enjoy some red, white and blue in honor of the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics, everyone.

*This post intends no disrespect to the sport of luge, or to those who participate in it. The ADHD daredevil in me loves the idea of barreling down a frozen water slide at 80mph. I have tried to convince my Partner that we should encourage our hypothetical children to participate in the sport someday. We live where it’s cold for the first time in many years. He was less than enthralled by the idea of them crashing at 80mph.

  1. Watching the snowboarding had me thinking the opposite – my future children will be nowhere near these sports, LOL. It’s funny because I wasn’t surprised that there’s hardly any African participants (tropical weather aside – most of us consider these kind of things unnecessary danger to put yourself in) but this year marks the first time certain African countries have ever participated which is very cool.

  2. I just saw your hypothetical kids training in your backyard on a custom luge course that also functions as a Rube Goldberg machine, (because brilliance is passed on from the mother, Iknowyouknow.) Cool! (pronounced with two syllables) 💜
