Stuck between the motion and the act

Your omniscient author in absentia:
OK, After two full days of work-related training (and we ain't talking about the "Spring" variety), I am the Hollow Man, headpiece filled with straw, shape without form, shade without color... well, you get the idea.

So no strip today.

But I would like to leave you with this prickly pear to go around:

I think you can tell a lot about a person by which side of this fence they fall on: Julia Mancuso or Lindsey Vonn?

Your thoughts?



Night in the hay with Vonn, marriage to Mancuso. Or, if you're Tiger, the other way around.

Talk about Caught between the Scylla and Charybdis...

I'm going with the Canadian women's hockey coach.

Good eats.

I'm going Vonn. It might be the blonde factor.

But to be honest, Kim Yu-Na is my true Olympic love. That could also be due to the fact that all of my ex-girlfriends and my current girlfriend happen to be Korean by some odd coincidence.

Mancuso seems a bit on the bitchy side to me. And after seeing Vonn's SI spread, the decision seems pretty easy.

But given that both of them are young enough to be my, er, niece, I might have to go Cheryl Bernard, the Canadian Curling Team's skip.

Oh man- Mancuso all the way. I've got a thing for brunettes. Plus I think it's odd that when they interview Vonn at the end of the run, she has makeup on. Who competes with mascara & lipstick on (besides A-Rod)?

When I was a kid I had dreams of being an Olympic downhiller. Franz Klammer won what would have (should have) been my gold, with greatest downhill I've ever seen. Lindsey Vonn's was a close second, so I have to go with her - never plays it safe, wins or crashes.

Allison Baver FTW.

What Rob in CT said.

Beauty, eh?

A strange game.

The only winning move is not to play.

How about a nice ménage à trois?

Mancuso is only 25? Must have been a hard 25 years.

I think this dispute is best settled the old-fashioned way: in a kiddie pool full of pudding.

PH - I'll offer up such a settlement to Ms. Mancuso this Sunday at Northstar in Tahoe. I think my wife will be on board w/ it. Perhaps a menage a four if Vonn makes it back to Tahoe in time.

Conception, Desire, Spasm, Whimper, Bang, Ends, Vonn, Mancuso...whew!...precisely what work are you training for, HB?

What a total nontroversy.

"If they celebrate in the changing room, that's one thing," [IOC douchebag] said, "but not in public."

Celebrating in the changing room? When do tickets go on sale?

I choose the Russian women's curling team.


That Vonn chick is a MAJOR drama queen! I'll have to go with the brunette. Hard to believe opening day is less than 2-months away.

I'm gonna need to go with Vonn. Not only do I think she is prettier, but she cries after WINNING a medal after not being able to practice for two weeks, out of a release of tension. Mancuso cries after not having a good run and ending up in 17th place. Not good form to cry when you lose.

So...it appears to me the Ladies of Soxaholix (Natalie, NolaSox) haven't posted at all today. I think we're not being fair to the other gender here.

Ladies, please feel free to choose which of us you think Vonn and/or Mancuso would sleep with. Thanks.

Team USA is crushing the Finns.

Okey-dockey, time for this boy to get a haircut. Im thinking about a Dorothy Hamill in honor of the winter games.

Anyway, have a great weekend all. Hopefully we'll have something fun to yak about on Monday.

stop calling me Dorothy, Bob


Interesting that Dorothy's link has Mancuso @ #3 and Vonn #7

me? I'm not sure about the whole tiara thing

I'll chime in! Lindsey Vonn all the way. Sure she's wearing makeup, has great teeth, and maybe Mancuso is jealous. She can SKI! Goes all out and sometimes crashes. Both Vonn and Mancuso are great athletes, but Vonn is really special. I would not kick her out of bed (heh heh, fellas!) - but none of us has any hope of a prayer with either one.

I was actually thinking on a different level than which one you'd prefer to bone, but, such is the interwebs.

Since this is all about "boning" regardless of hb's ideas otherwise (did you really think this would pan out like a beatles vs. rolling stones argument?)... i'm pretty sure that Vonn would fall out of bed and break an ankle that she would cry about in interviews for years to come. This girl is going with Mancuso and her tiara.

Fucking Canada, and their fucking hockey teams, their horrible shit beer, their sorry excuse for bacon, aweful maple syrup, and their wimpy ass falling leaf emblem. There, I feel better now.
