What We’re Buzzing About This Week

February 6, 2014

Boots in Snow

It’s been a full week,and people across America are buzzing about the turn of events.

First up,the newly crowned winner of this season’s Biggest Loser dropped 155 pounds in just 14 weeks, triggering an outcry that she may have gone too far. At 5′ 4″, Rachel Frederickson weighs 105 pounds, just shy of a healthy BMI. While most professionals consider 1 to 2 pounds per week healthy and sustainable weight loss, Frederickson shed 1.5 pounds per day! Did she go too far?

Discussing the weather has moved from banal small talk to a hot topic. We have been bombarded by snow, extremely low temperatures and tornadoes, with no sign of it letting up. Is Mother Nature mad at us, or is all the buzz about global climate change really not just a political issue? Discuss.

Facebook is celebrating it’s 10th birthday by offering it’s loyal followers a personalized memory video. The cheesy retrospective, set to muzak, is based on your photos, most liked posts and profile pictures generated during your time on the social network.  It could move you to tears, make you cringe and at the very least lead you to re-evaluate what you share with the world.

Sports journalists are arriving in Sochi, Russia, in anticipation of the upcoming Olympics. What they are finding is accommodations that are well below sub-standard. Broken toilets, group toilets, and brown water are among the highlights of the hotel rooms they are staying in. One reporter found a large insect preserved for eternity in the packet of honey he opened at breakfast. Between the squalor and the terror threats, this is going to be an interesting Olympics. Let the games begin!

New York Fashion Week gets underway today, so again,  let the games begin!

The “Oops” Olympics: Going for the Gold

August 1, 2012

The Olympics are well underway, transfixing people around the world. While nothing of that scale can go off without a hitch, there have been some major gaffes this year.

Did anyone notice a strange woman in street clothes marching with the Indian team? Apparently the Olympic officials didn’t, until she was spotted in the midst of the group clad in jeans and a red hoodie, as they all marched in their bright yellow garb.

Security also proved to be a challenge, when the privately contracted firm hired to handle this, acknowledged that they could not provide the amount of guards they originally committed to. Thousands of military personnel, some just back from Afghanistan were recruited to fill the gaps.

When the women’s soccer competition kicked off, the South Korean flag was proudly displayed on the jumbo screen. Too bad the team was representing North Korea, who they are currently at war with.

Police accidentally misplaced the keys to Wembley Stadium, forcing them to have to change all of the locks at the football arena, after a team from Scotland Yard failed to find them.

While the list goes on, from televising rows of empty seats to misstating athlete’s countries of origin, none of these are quite as bad as some of the gaffes made by our very own Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney and his team.

Today, while in Warsaw, Poland, Mr. Romney was questioned by the press about some of his travel faux pas. His press secretary promptly lashed out saying,” Kiss my ass, this is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect.”

While the English are enjoying a little self deprecating humor and laughing at their mistakes, the Republicans will just do what they always do: blame it on the black guy that lives in the big, white house.

Yeah, I went there..”oops”!
