Does this mean we'll see full contact biathlon this time?  Will Russia challenge Finland for the gold in the team event?

/Finland took gold in the 1940 Winter Games.

I hope the Russian mafia can put better prostitutes on the street than Canada did in Vancouver in 2010.  Seems like Canada only had home grown girls ("Oh, yer gonna blow a big load, eh?  Right in my Tim Horton shooter, eh?") and fresh off the boat Celestials (CAT INTERCOURSE NOISES).  I didn't rubber up for the Canucks, but the Orientals just smelled like Hep C.  I guess that's what happens when you don't have a strong crime family in charge.

Are Eastern European girls typically pretty healthy?  That movie Taken has really turned me off to them.  If she even remotely speaks English, I'll feel like I'm farking a Have You Seen Me? milk carton.  And no way am I standing in line with a bunch of filthy stinking construction workers all to make love to a passed out chick in a bed-sheet-room-fort that a four year old could've constructed.

I'm hopeful that the Russians can get something decent worked out.  That would save the Winter Olympics for a lot of fans of winter sports like me.

Oh, I'm sure it'll be fine, and Sochi will join the list of such esteemed Olympic host cities as Munich and Sarajevo.

Apparently Putin's girlfriend just had another kid.  And strangely, Putin's wife was nowhere to be found for her recent 55th birthday.

People complain about Putin, but you have to keep in mind that Russians need a strong and ruthless leader since you're dealing with a not very trustworthy culture riddled with crime.

OscarTamerz: the country functioned as a "virtual mafia state", referring to the co-dependence of the mob and the state.

So it's like New Jersey but with better odor and more class?

More like Rhode island with better food and more considerate people

Criminal interest in the city, long a favourite weekend destination of the president, Vladimir Putin, has grown exponentially since it won the right to host the Games, according to security sources. A senior Russian official said on Sunday that Russia would spend more than £32.3bn on the Winter Olympics, making it the most expensive in history.

But remember kids, Pootey-Poot had NOTHING to do with it.  No sir, he's for honest dictatorship.
