Let's see if the elevator shaft is made of cardboard...

Johnny Quinn trifecta in play. Now taking bets on the latest

Drunk Russian punches him 2:1
Gets mauled by stray dogs  4:1
Drinks yellow hotel water 5:1
Empty elevator shaft fall 7:1
Assaulted on tandem toilet 9:1
Olympic village structure collapse 50:1
Olympic orgy injury priceless

If you find yourself next to Johnny Quinn, leave immediately.

I'm going to take a wild guess that this is one of the guys in the middle that just pushes the sled for a few feet at the start and then gets in and goes WHEEEEEEEE

Since this happened in the bathroom, by their own admission the Rutsky's should have video of this right? Maybe they can throw it up on YouTube or Vine so we can watch him bust through the door.

OK, is he a bit of a drama queen or does his publicist tell him to start posting these things? Enjoy your 15 minutes 2 weeks, Johnny.

Russia is a disaster.

I watched Putin's Olympics on the CBC today. I'm shocked things aren't worst actually.  What a festering shiathole

You realize that bathroom door was standard for an interior door, right? Put a hole in a closet door, bedroom door or bathroom door inside the house and you'll see the same. Solid core doors are only used on entry doors and fire doors like the one from the garage into the house proper.

Also, this is a great ongoing adventure, it cracks me up.

My guess is he actually is just getting stuck in small spaces and tweeting about it.

I'd buy that, but his roommates were in the room when he was locked in the bathroom. There's even a vent in the door he could have yelled through, but they thought it was construction noise.

"Help, it's Johnny, I'm stuck in the bathroom!" doesn't sound at all like "Может ли ваш принести мне молоток, пожалуйста?"

I'm not sure what your point it?

About 10yrs ago my uncle got stuck in a bathroom during a family Thanksgiving dinner. Those of us not in attendance got calls so we could listen in on speaker phone as they attempted to rescue him. It. Was. Hilarious!

Feel the rhythm
Feel the rhyme
Get on up,
it's bobsled time!

Yeah, I was just picturing such substandard construction in Sochi that this guy could have punched his way out of an elevator shaft without serious injury.

The article didn't say he made it out of the elevator.

They could still be stranded there....

They're not.  And it's not the first time the team's been stuck in an elevator this season, which is just impressive at this point.  Jazmine Fenlator, Lolo Jones, Aja Evans and a few of the guys got stuck in an elevator in the preseason during training.

Lol, I wouldn't be too surprised. Worst case scenario, they could cut the rope up top and let it just fall to the bottom of the shaft, there's probably a ton of construction debris down there, maybe a big soft piles of insulation...

Not sure where you got that from. According to this, his roommate was not in the room.

The mighty Quinn strikes again.

His event isn't until the end, so he's probably bored and trying to find ways to amuse himself.
 
2014-02-10 06:59:18 PM  
maybe his teammates should be afraid to get in the sled with him
 
2014-02-10 07:00:54 PM  
He's gotta be goofing around.

Though, maybe he's a gifted athlete?

So we've had an elevator that doesn't open when you want it to (Quinn) and an elevator that opens when you don't want it to (the female bobsledder who nearly re-enacted Rosalind Shay's death on "LA Law")

/Still love mentioning that.
//Yes, I submitted that one.

And, stuff like this is why I think that article from the other day that said that we were just being a bunch of privileged snobs for mocking Sochi are bullshiat. If China can pull off a competent Olympics despite being the country where Walmart is selling rat meat as donkey, Russia should be able to do it to. But nope, we just get people stuck in elevators.

Oh YEAH!

Watching the late local news... His roommate/team mate is from around here. And he keeps insisting that things aren't as bad as journalists and twitter make it out to be. I get the feeling that he is full of shiat for one reason or another.

It's that or he's trolling us.
