    Fucking evil Russians. first the dogs now this!

    The man responsible for operating the Olympic Rings during last night’s Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies in Russia was found dead today. According to local reports the body of T. Borris Avdeyev was found his hotel room early this morning with multiple stab wounds.
    Avdeyev was a technical specialist responsible for the Olympic Ring spectacle, which embarrassingly malfunctioned last night. Five animatronic snowflakes were supposed to transform into Olympic Rings. The first four functioned properly but the fifth snowflake failed to change shape.


    Although his body was badly mangled and the wounds were consistent with a struggle, so far officials say they don't suspect foul play.


    “Sure there were stab wounds and bruises all over the body,†admits the lead investigator on the case, “But who knows what caused them. Maybe he tripped and fell on a set of knives. Right now we’re ruling this an accidental death.
    “It’s terrible when accidents like this happen. But then again, maybe Mr. Avdeyev should have thought twice before he screwed up the Olympics. Accidents tend to happen to people who betray Russia.â€
    Despite the government’s story, fellow hotel guests reported hearing a struggle in Avdeyev’s room around 3am local time.
    “There was a very loud noise last night,†Canadian bobsled member Guy Lafleur, who was staying two hotel rooms down, “I called the front desk but the phone didn't work so I went to the room where the sound was coming from and saw three big men leave the room.

    Russian TV covers up Opening Ceremony malfunction seen around the world

    [​IMG]

    Viewers of Russia’s official Olympic broadcaster, Rossiya 1, didn’t see the major Olympic ring mishap at Friday’s Opening Ceremony. While the rest of the world was watching a snowflake fail to transform into a fifth Olympic ring, Rossiya cut away to a close-up of dancers, then faded into rehearsal footage that showed the rings joining seamlessly.

    :lol:

    Bobsled member Guy Lafleur won 5 Stanley Cups with the Canadiens. Glad to see he's so versatile!

    I knew it was a fake because they're just going to off him by poisoning him with radioactive isotopes.

    This case is open and shut.

    This guy Artie'd himself.

    He was just better at it than his namesake.

    This.

    And for the record? Barcelona's torch-lighting was the most fan-fucking-tastic thing I've ever seen during an opening ceremony. Dude lit the olympic torch using a bow and flaming arrow. :yes:
