Aiming for the RSP trifecta, Brian Boitano, recently out, is going to Sochi. Given the abuses of the Putin regime, we have to ask:

♫ What would Brian Boitano do
If he were there right then? ♪
♬ He'd sharpen himself a stake or two! ♪
That's what Brian Boitano'd do! ♪

♬ When Brian Boitano burned Vlad Putin
In the Year Two Thousand Ten ♪
♫ He drove off the evil vampire Lord ♪
And saved us all again! ♪

♫ What would Brian Boitano do
If he fought Count Putin now? ♪
♬ He'd deploy his right Cross for you! ♪
That's what Brian Boitano'd do! ♪

♬ When Brian Boitano went to Sochi
In the blood-rimmed days ahead ♪
♫ He rode a Rainbow Zamboni blessed by God ♪
And crushed the Leech-Horde dead! ♪

♬ As Brian Boitano slays undead
On the rinks of sacred ice ♪
♫ He'll use his magical fire breath ♪
And holy steam will scald them twice! ♪

♫ What would Brian Boitano do
When he slayed old Vlad, and how? ♪
♬ He'd sharpen himself a stake or two! ♪
♬ Aim for the heart and drive it through! ♬♪
♬ Cut off the head and burn it, too! ♪
'Cuz that's what Brian Boitano'd Dooooooooooooo! ♪

I'm sort of surprised Putin is letting him enter the country, since embarrassing his regime is the very purpose of the visit. It's bad enough from Putin's perspective that the President is staying away.

Other people are getting into difficulties as a result of this Olympics. Pro hockey, for example, has a serious problem. the National Hockey League has to take two weeks off at a vital point in the season so their players can compete in Sochi. In the past this was accepted as the exposure helped grow the game. But the time difference this year is such that only the most dedicated North American fans will be watching the games live. The NHL gains little if anything from the exercise -- and risks injury to many of their very best players for no gain to their clubs.

Meanwhile, the regime is so paranoid about their image that they are reportedly hunting down and killing every stray dog in Sochi and its environs to prevent one from showing up at any of the events.

Oh, Putin's got all sorts of egg over his face, due to his Potemkin village of an Olympic village is completely not ready for 'prime time', with even basic things like bathrooms in hotels not up to snuff.

Quote:
Amid continued debate over whether or not Sochi is prepared to host the 2014 Olympics (here are 15 alarming signs that Russia might not be ready) reporters from around the world are starting to check into local hotels — to their apparent grief. Some journalists arriving in Sochi are describing appalling conditions in the housing there, where only six of nine media hotels are ready for guests. Hotels are still under construction. Water, if it’s running, isn’t drinkable. One German photographer told the AP over the weekend that his hotel still had stray dogs and construction workers wandering in and out of rooms.

Oh, this is going to be funny.

They chose Sochi over Salzburg?? And we're to believe that there WASN'T any graft going on with the Olympic Committee?
