Word on the street is, that at some point in history, actually not too long ago, social media didn’t exist. There was no Facebook to give you baby kittens, no Instagram to show you, what everyone and their mom had for dinner, and certainly no Twitter to have an outlet for every useless thought you’re having in mind. We know, that this sounds really awful, and we too have absolutely no idea how people were able to survive through these dark times until the mighty INTERNET AND SMART PHONE GOD came upon us. But what we do know is, that between the massive overload of bullshit, it can sometimes be quite entertaining.
With all eyes on a certain winter sports event over in no man’s land, and us sitting in the office behind our desks, the only coverage being the broadcast of the actual contest (not even that works out good, those live streams came straight out of hell, coordinated by Bud Keene), we’re glad, that we get a tiny insight into the Olympic day-to-day-life. We tried to balance out the tweets, but Sage Kotsenburg and Todd Richards cracked us up since they set foot in Sochi, so we threw in a little bit more spoicy Sage and cheeky Todd thoughts. Alright guys, we’ve been at the office since 6.30 this morning, doing the live blog for you, and we’ve had one or six beers throughout the day, so we’ll leave you with this list now and try to make it through the rest of the day awake and in one piece.
