I'm having a hard time reading this.. Perhaps NBC can do a human interest story about this instead...

How do they get that much awesome on two skis?

If you don't know who she is... spend 10 minutes on youtube. IMHO, it's quite worth the time. Been a fan for years.

Pub bore
This year's competition features world-renowned concert violinist Vanessa Mae, East Timor's first Winter Olympian, Yohan Goutt, and 55-year-old German prince Hubertus von Hohenlohe,  who will represent Mexico, the country of his birth, wearing a race suit inspired by Mexican folk music.

Wait ... there's an olympic sport called "Pub Bore?" I'm pretty sure I can medal in that.

When were the tryouts?

I hate when you are so broke you need two jobs.

Okay, so Prince Hubertus Hohenlohe is one of those crazy guy types, who's been the oddball skier at several Winter Olympics, beginning in 1984 at Sarajevo. He's a German prince, a Mexican citizen (by virtue of being born there) and lives in Lichtenstein after growing up in Spain and Austria.

He also looks almost exactly like Douglas Reynholm, which makes him my new favorite Olympian:

Tits are for babies.  She's perfect.

C'mon, that's kind of cool... I like her work. It's a bit gimmicky, but she's good at it.
2014-02-07 01:05:33 PM  
Maybe subby could have linked to the story about her rather than some BBC winter olympics landing page.

She's a talented violinist but her music kinda bores me. Give me Emilie Autumn any day.
