"Years from now, residents of the Mid-Atlantic will remember 2014 as the year they wore snow boots for a month. Reporter Steve Keeley, of FOX 29 in Philadelphia, will remember it as the year he got plowed.”
Remember: Watch out for snow plows.
Local news reporters are basically professional Japanese game show contestants. So much injury, so little dignity.
The final runs of the two man bobsled competition are happening tonight. The Jamaican bobsled team is back after a 12 year hiatus and they have an awesome theme song (see video)
The song comes courtesy of the Jamaican Tourist Board and is designed to be played in perfect sync with one of their runs down the Sanki sliding track. The music video was just posted on Youtube on Thursday and already has more than 300,000 views. The first bobsled team from Jamaica inspired the 1993 movie, Cool Runnings, and also inspired athletes from other warm weather countries to try winter sports.
After three runs, the Jamaican Bobsled Team is in 29th place out of 30, but it doesn’t much matter. They’re at the Olympics.
There is only one thing that could make me put my rabid, unseemly patriotism on hold during the Olympics. And that thing is the Jamaican bobsled team.
