Default Scotty Lago kicked out of Vancouver

Anyone else see this or hear about it?

I know that's how I'd like to celebrate after winning an Olympic medal haha.

Funny how it's the rest of the world always giving Americans crap about how uptight we are over sex. Yet we've gotta ship him out to placate the IOC rumblings.

I guess it only applies if you're not bitter about something.

I saw the pics and they weren't even NSFW. Some chick just kissed his medal near his crotch. Wow, how horrible. At the same time you got Micheal Phelps who drove drunk and is still acting like a douche. Seems like the Olympic committee has it out for Snowboarders and extreme athletes in general.

There's nothing over the top about it. He's a kid who just won a medal and hadn't slept for 36 hours having a bit of fun. It's not like he took her spread-eagle on the bar or anything.

The IOC made their money off the popular sports, why would they need the boarders around now?

I'm not gonna lie, it makes him look like a retard and not just for the stupid grin he has on. It seems disrespectful to the games, hanging your medal around you balls to pretend some asains sucking you off.

Thats real cool, bro! Lets take pictures!

He could thought a little bit about his surrondings and just fucked the broad back at the hotel. Not done this stupid display if front of poeple.

My 2.

So the fact that she was asian is the problem, amirite?

Gwailo at work.

Also Terje :

Terje’s decision to shun the first ever Olympics to feature snowboarding in ‘98 - at a time when he would most likely have swept the gold – sparked a media frenzy around the world, and made people question the entire validity of snowboarding in the Games. He labeled the International Olympic Committee (IOC) ‘ski Nazis’, refused to take part in an event that was run by the ski federation and was hit with criticism by his fellow countrymen for being unpatriotic. So much has been written about his actions that it’s interesting to hear Terje’s own take on that time. “I know a lot of people say that I boycotted the Olympics, but I don't think I did,” he says. “I was pretty quiet about it besides giving a lot of criticism about the IOC and the FIS in big sports mags in the US and Europe. A piece in Sports Illustrated and a Swedish TV show that I did six months before the Olympics said most of what I had on my mind, but I didn’t run around yelling and doing more press on it. That's why I don’t feel like I boycotted them. It was more just not caring and not being a part of it.”


No, I did not speak about commercialisation. I spoke about the fact that a ski federation took over the sport for only money interest and about how the IOC operate. Yes, how weird is it that Danny Kass and Andy Finch – who are not sponsored by Burton - had to wear Burton clothing while competing there. You can’t pack your own bags! I think the Olympics are good for the sport in certain ways, but I could write a book about facts that seem very strange to me.
