And while I’m on the subject of the Winter Olympics. Duffster reported before the Games began (in his post Olympic village root-fest about to get underway) that 100,000 free condoms ad been distributed to the 7,000 athletes in anticipation of the shagging frenzy usual on such occasions. At an average of 14 condoms apiece, some may have thought this would cover the requirements adequately enough, but apparently not.
Swedish Biathlete Sven Diggler was the first to require a top up
Supplies appear to have run dangerously low. Low enough that, on the last Wednesday of the Games, the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research leapt into action and trucked an extra 25,000 free condoms off to the Olympic Village. CANFAR’s Executive Director, Kerry Whiteside, explained…
When we heard about the condom shortage in Vancouver, we felt it important to respond immediately
Good work Kerry. Although it does rather raise a question.
Are all Winter Olympians so skint they can’t afford to buy their own?

It has been a disappointing couple of weeks for those Tiger Woods fans who have emotionally overinvested in Tiger’s public persona/personality/ability/gigantic god-like aura/add your own phrase here. But this piece in today’s Wall Street Journal takes the cake! It is nothing short of Continue reading

So, the First Church of Tiger Woods been disbanded and the sole pastor will be letting the web domain TigerWoodsisGod.com lapse. Telling us why, Pastor John Ziegler writes that:
The events of the past few days have revealed Tiger to be a serial adulterer, a blatant liar, and a selfish coward. While I am sure I will Continue reading

So she is a he… but at the same time, he is a she.
To the glee of the world sports media, the results of tests on World Athletic Championship 800m winner, Caster Semenya, have discovered she “has internal testes” rather than ovaries.
