I must break you.

I'm sorry.

But every time I hear the Russian national anthem during the winter Olympics medal ceremonies, all I can think about is Rocky 4.

Does anyone else remember this scene? When Rocky goes to Russia to kick Ivan Drago's blond technologically-driven ass? 'Member? Come on!

Oh - and 'member how Drago's press guy was one of the Malachi brothers from Happy Days? Come on! 'Member the Malachi Crunch that messed up Pinky Tuscadero's head in the demolition derby?

Oh forget it.

Freakin' Russian ice skaters.

...oh oh oh, and the crowd who hates Rocky learns to love him as he takes a huge ass-whippin', but comes back to win anyway(cuz he trained in the snow and all, lifting carts, running from Russian agents up the mountain side) and Rocky says, "If I can change, and you can change...then everybody can change..." and the camera freezes on him with the flag as the credits start to roll...

Why didn't he get an academy award? WHY?!

DO I???? That's the one where Apollo got pummeled to death before my very eyes. I'm STILL traumatized by that movie. Damn that Dolph Lundgren!!!

Ya gotta love Rocky! If only the winter olympics could be like that and the Americans prevail over the Ruskies.

And c'mon... I mean, the darn Russians won before they even stepped on the ice.

If you're not one of the "favorites to win" then you just don't stand a chance no matter how good you are. Dammit, I need a good kiss and cry!

Brandon - I, too, was upset when Rocky 4 wasn't nominated for an Oscar. What the hell are people thinking?

Nicole - Unfortunately, Apollo's mouth wrote a check that his ass couldn't cash.

Todd - Well said! This "favorite to win" crap is a bunch of hooey. Unless it's an American, then I'm OK with it. Ha!

Brett - Dear God! Someone who remembers the Malachi brothers! Oh - remember how Count Malachi would get mad when the Fonz would call him by his real name Myron? Tee hee hee hee!

I remember!
'Member the Malachi Crunch that messed up Pinky Tuscadero's head in the demolition derby?'

I remember all that! That was an awesome episode. She was such a bad bitch with her skin tight pants and boobies hanging out and smacking on gum.

Anonymous deana said... reminds me of the same thing. In fact watching them the other night I thought "Hell, I don't need to go to the gym. Stallone did all that training in a barn! I should get out and run in the snow." Didn't happen, but I had Rocky IV on the brain too.

Congrats on site of the day!

That is classic! I think the Russian skaters have sold their souls to the devil or something. They are so technically on, but there's no passion, no emotion in what they do. Creepy.

Apparently they know how to party though. Maybe they're a little human.

Yes, the tension and the drama as Pinky climbed out on the hood of her car to see if she could fix it. Now the Malachis zero in! Now Pinky realizes she has used maybe one brain cell in thinking up this idea! Now she goes sailing off the hood of the car as the wicked Malachis "crunch" it! Now she is taken away in an ambulance after sustaining what might be serious injuries following her fall from the towering hood of that car! Oh, the humanity, the humanity! Well, it seemed that way when I was 10 and I watched this episode, anyway.

verify word: kzjqz (Which I think is one of those Russian skaters, isn't it?)
