Every Four Years


Every four years, sportsmen and women gather in some corner of the world to “contribute to building a peaceful and better world by educating youth through sport practiced without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play” (plagiarized or Melania Trumpized from the Olympics organisation).

And every four years, everyone seems to be watching the Olympics, talking about the Olympics or blogging about the Olympics.  Bowing to immense pressure from shareholders, the Lone Grey Squirrel has reluctantly agreed to do an Olympics post to boost flagging blog traffic.

But of course, this squirrel’s nod to the Olympics has a nutty flavour.  Without further ado, here is our tip of the hat to the Olympic sport of gymnastics.

  1. Usually I’m not in sports. But I saw pictures and images from the Fidji rugby winning, and have to admit that I am moved. They cleaned the green with their opponents, God these blokes are great, what a win !

  2. Personally the comedy routines are about on par for me with the actual events, though I am looking forward to seeing Clerissa Shields open a can of whoop ass in women’s boxing.

  3. Evilsquirrel,
    Perhaps there is some way we can ban the career and corrupt politicians from the elections just as Russian athletes were banned from Rio for doping. Maybe we could insist candidates pass a dope test and a lie detector test and maybe even an IQ test?
