Olympic Fails of the Week

While yesterday I said that I’m boycotting the Sochi Olympics, I believe that pointing out all that is wrong with the Sochi Olympics is in keeping with the spirit of the boycott. I’m not interested in supporting these Olympics or embarrassing the athletes. I’m interested in undermining the Sochi Organizing Committee’s efforts to make Russia look good in the eyes of the world when it should be looked down upon with scorn.

So here are five pictures and tweets of Sochi Olympic fails.

Russian TV replaced the above fail with footage from rehearsal so everything looked well in Russia. The rest of the world saw four rings and a snowflake.

Austrian hockey coach Alpo Suhonen, who once threatened to sue Don Cherry for pointing out he shared his name with a dog food brand, fell while trying to take pictures. Other Austrians couldn't be bothered to help. The spirit of unity.
