Cuban Olympian Banned For Life/ Kicks Referee/ Olympic Jokes

There’s an old saying that one picture is worth a thousand words. So we don’t need to say a lot about this one. Let’s just say that another communist nation managed to grab the headlines in a way that illustrates lack of respect for the rules.  Here’s Cuban Angel Matos reacting to his loss in a match where he stayed down on the mat more than one minute and was disqualified for taking too much injury time.

Apparently he started feeling better after just a little while and could have continued as he demonstrates in this photo.

Maybe he should not have been disqualified in the first place.  He could have protested after the match and taken things to a higher level.  But I don’t think that’s going to work now Angel.

Further details

Here are a few of the funnier comments made by NBC commentators during the Olympics.  Don’t go here if you are offended by somewhat gross  stuff.

Example

2.  Dressage commentator: “This is really a lovely horse and I speak
from personal experience since I once mounted her mother.”
(I heard this one and was very impressed.)

Here are the top nine comments made by NBC sports commentators so far
during the Olympics that they would like to take back:

1.  Weight-lifting commentator: “This is Gregorieva from Bulgaria. I saw
her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing.”
(I’m kinda glad I didn’t hear this one!)

2.  Dressage commentator: “This is really a lovely horse and I speak
from personal experience since I once mounted her mother.”
(I heard this one and was very impressed.)

3.  Paul Hamm, Gymnast: “I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother
and father.”
(I heard this one and thought he should thank his grandparents, too.)

4.  Boxing Analyst: “Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths
in boxing, but none of them really that serious.”

5.  Softball announcer: “If history repeats itself, I should think we
can expect the same thing again.”

6.  Basketball analyst: “He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn’t
like it. In fact you can see it all over their faces.”

7.  At the rowing medal ceremony:  “Ah, isn’t that nice, the wife of the
IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew.”
(I heard this one and was afraid to look at the TV.)

8.  Soccer commentator:  “Julian Dicks is everywhere. It’s like they’ve
got eleven Dicks on the field.”

9.  Tennis commentator: “One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is
that, before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses
them… Oh my God, what have I just said?”
