Adam Rippon Takes Tiny Dump On NBC

Olympic skater Adam Rippon can only spin around three times in the air instead of four, so he is of course garbage in the eyes of the 2018 PyeongChange Olympic judges and most of the world. Even though a lack of ariel dexterity kept Rippon out of contention for a men’s singles medal, he struck a chord […] The post Adam Rippon Takes Tiny Dump On NBC appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Olympic skater Adam Rippon can only spin around three times in the air instead of four, so he is of course garbage in the eyes of the 2018 PyeongChange Olympic judges and most of the world. Even though a lack of ariel dexterity kept Rippon out of contention for a men’s singles medal, he struck a chord with audiences over the course of the first week of the Olympic games – enough so to land a correspondence gig with NBC that was supposed to last for the next week, but ended up lasting for four and a half seconds. Rippon accepted the position before realizing that he would have to disassociate from Team U.S.A. and vacate the Olympics HPVillage, which for gay athletes at the Winter Games is like last call at a sex dungeon on Fire Island. He stated to USA Today: I am so flattered that NBC wanted me to work as a correspondent, but if I took this opportunity, I would have to leave the Olympic team and I would have to leave the (Olympic) Village. It’s so important to me, you know, I worked so hard to be on this Olympic team, and my teammates and my friends were there for me during my events, and that meant so much to me, that I really feel like I need to be there for them during their events. People will always criticize whatever network is broadcasting the Olympics, and I really do think that NBC’s inability to gauge which sports we want to be televised (Spoiler: Women getting two feet off the ground on snowboards is not a sport, sorry not sorry) and which to leave to the twelve-people audiences at the PyeongChang games is glaring. In addition to the actual coverage, NBC seems to be scraping the bottom of the barrel with its ragtag team of correspondents. But at least we know that if wall-eyed Shrek monster Mike Tirico can make it on TV, anybody can. Deadline also points to a slew of gaffes made by announcers so far, and basically, nabbing the widely-liked Rippon would have been a win for NBC. By accepting and then quickly dropping this offer, Rippon is telling that world that it’s better to sip hot cocoa and get intercontinental STDs in warming tents than work for NBC. And that’s a message that, as Americans, we can all get behind.   I am flattered that NBC wanted me to work as a correspondent for them here in PyeongChang. Doing this would require me to leave Team USA and move out of the Olympic Village. I don’t want to do that so I had to declined the opportunity. — Adam Rippon (@Adaripp) February 19, 2018 I love being on Team USA and representing our country. My teammates were there for me during my events, and now I NEED to be there for them. I look forward to being with them, and I’m very excited for the rest of the competition. Go Team USA!!! — Adam Rippon (@Adaripp) February 19, 2018 Photo Credit: Getty Images The post Adam Rippon Takes Tiny Dump On NBC appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»

Russia has been barred from the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea in response to the widespread doping among the country's athletes. The International Olympic Committee made the ruling on Tuesday, announcing Russian government officials are forbidden to attend next year's global sporting event. Not only that, its flag will not be displayed during the opening ceremony and its anthem will not be played. Ouch! Related: Olympic Drug Tests Show U.S. Athletes Used Banned Substances White some athletes from Russia can petition for eligibility to compete, they will only be able to do so as individuals. Yes, even if these athletes take home the gold, official record books will show that Russia won ZERO medals. The IOC issued the punishment a year after completing an investigation that exposed a state-sponsored doping program operated by the country. To match the unprecedented use of banned substances, the committee hit Russia with penalties so severe, they were unprecedented in Olympics history. The punishment, which will likely face a legal appeal from Russia's Olympic Committee, is similar to what the World Anti-Doping Agency had lobbied for leading up to the 2016 Summer Games -- which allowed Russia to participate in restricted numbers. Related: Lil Peep's Death Being Investigated By Police The 2018 Winter Games, however, will show no traces of the country. Russian athletes with histories of diligent drug testing can request permission to complete in neutral uniform, but then must be approved by a panel appointed by the IOC. We'll wait to see how Russia responds to this news, as some country officials threatened to boycott in response to such a harsh punishment. OMG, Vlad should totally throw an anti-Olympics! That'll show them. [Image via NBC.].....»»

People Think It’s Okay To Sexualize Olympic Male Athletes’ Bulges

Whatever you do in life please do not think that Alexandra Daddario’s DD rack looked motorboat-able in her Time’s Up finest at the 2018 Golden Globes. That would be seriously messed up and would set us back four-thousand-years.

Whatever you do in life please do not think that Alexandra Daddario’s DD rack looked motorboat-able in her Time’s Up finest at the 2018 Golden Globes. That would be seriously messed up and would set us back four-thousand-years. But while you’re at it, please also make sure to look at the dick bulges of male Olympic athletes in skin-tight outfits! You get a dick bulge and you get a dick bulge and you get a dick bulge. Dick bulges for everyone. Due to the porn-ish looking outfits that the men’s luge competitors sported at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games, as well as the unforgiving camera angles featured in NBC’s coverage of the sport, the Internet erupted over the outlines of penises and balls visible on prime time. In fact a writer for the Lena Dunham of websites, Buzzfeed, even posted the article “11 Men’s Luge Bulges That All Deserve Gold Medals.” The whory single forty-something secretary of websites, Cosmopolitan, declared “These Photos of The Olympic Men’s Luge Competition Are… Spectacular.” So. Hm. I don’t necessarily believe in reverse sexism because I think if a man can’t take it then he has a vagina anyway, but the irony of zooming in on men’s baby batter basters without their explicit consent at a time when looking at a woman’s name badge means you want to stab her in the ovaries with a serrated blade is not lost on me. I think the outfits look ridiculous and that watching men’s luge with your kids will save you from having to explain the birds and the bees, but I can’t help but wonder what the reaction would be if someone wrote up “11 Women’s Speed Skating Camel Toes That All Deserve Gold Medals.” I’d venture to find out with my own article but I’m pretty sure I’d get murdered by about ten-thousand people at once. Right after they finished exploding all over their screens to these bulges. Life’s confusing.     Me yesterday: “Wait so like what is ‘luge’ anyway?” Me today, sobbing: “Luge is probably the most important thing in my life after water and air.” pic.twitter.com/jSFohvTNno — Tim Federle (@TimFederle) February 10, 2018 Photo Credit: Getty Images   The post People Think It’s Okay To Sexualize Olympic Male Athletes’ Bulges appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»

Gambling and Some Interesting Celebrity Breaks

Gambling is something which is considered a luxury sport. It is a pastime and an occasion for many people to network and grow. Many people have had great fortune through gambling and have become celebrities from rags. However, there have been many other stories which have made rags out of celebrities, too. It’s interesting to know how addicted our role models could be to gamble that they end up earning for gambling, sacrifice, family/relationships for gambling and what-not. So, let’s not waste time and talk about some interesting celebrity stories, which you might not have known. 1. Tiger Woods Well who does not like Tiger Woods and when did Tiger need introductions anyway? But the habit of gambling by Tiger might be unexplored. As per our sources, Tiger was introduced to gambling by Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley. Gambling became an addiction soon when he started hanging out with Michael and Charles a little too much. It is rumored that Tiger has a whopping $1 million limit in most reputable casinos in Vegas. Well, now you know where Tiger’s whopping brand endorsements and high golf contract prices are ending up. Also, Tiger does not believe in playing for smaller amounts and usually takes part in high stakes games of at least $25,000. Tiger highly appreciated his kind of table set up in casinos. The Mansion at MGM Grand Las Vegas is his favorite gambling destination. He has always loved a table for himself that was surrounded by party girls. Gambling and tables surrounded by party girls were one of the prime reasons that cost Tiger a divorce from his wife. Considering the expense of divorce which cost about $750 million and a relationship, gambling was a costly choice made by the famous golfer. 2. Michael Phelps Michael Phelps is one of the greatest swimmers the world has ever known. He is a famous Olympian who has won 28 Olympic medals for his country and has brought so much glory to his country and himself. This is the highest number of Olympic medals any individual has won, which is what has brought the swimmer a peaceful retirement life in his early thirties. He is retired now and is just 32 years of age but has achieved remarkable heights which certainly will define him for a lifetime. But, one lesser known fact or habit of Michael was gambling. He had a habit of not accepting defeat and a ‘try until you win’ attitude, which earned him a lot of success at Olympics. However, this isn’t the case with gambling. If you lose, you continue to lose heavily, and it is all about luck and fortune as the results are not directly proportional to the attempts or efforts. It took loads of time for Michael to understand this and sources say that he was into gambling so much that it sometimes happened for eight straight hours. This problem persisted with Michael during 2012. He was also caught for drinking and driving near a casino in Maryland, where he was probably stressed after a straight eight hours of continuous gambling. His life had become very stressed as he wasn’t used to losing and was desperate to win no matter what it had cost. This kept pushing him to despair. Somehow with the help of his friends and close ones, he came out of the gambling habit and now is leaving a peaceful and comfortable life. 3. Tobey Maguire Tobey the on-screen Spider-Man is as cool and smart in the real life as he is in his movies. He took some tips from a poker player Daniel Negreanu and turned out to make a fortune of $10 million. As per his close friends, tips from Daniel who is a professional poker player helped him make over $10 million. He also participated in a World Series of Poker tournament, which was the time when he encountered Daniel who probably changed his fortune. But, Tobey’s gambling habits got him to a legal hurdle. He, with some of the other influential celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck, were found to be participating in underground poker games, which are considered illegal due to the unaccounted money at stake. In the year, 2011 Tobey faced a lawsuit for organizing an illegal ring of underground poker. He didn’t take a financial loss due to gambling but a lawsuit against the Spider-Man certainly harmed his popularity. But, compared to other celebrities on the list, Tobey certainly gained a lot more than he lost due to gambling! 4. Allen Iverson Allen Iverson is a very famous professional basketball champion. The basketball player has retired now but played 14 seasons in NBA tournaments. Gambling had brought him loads of trouble for which Allen who was nicknamed as ‘The Answer’ had no answers. His case was probably the reverse of Tobey. Allen managed to lose over $200 million through gambling. Yes, you read it right — $200 million — only through gambling. This famous basketball player had received several heights in his career and received contracts of a lifetime from Reebok. However, due to gambling, he had lost a great deal of his money and was in severe debt and literally had to beg his teammates to pay off such a debt. Also, during the end of his career, he lost the lifetime contract from Reebok as his gambling debts and other negative news reports started surfacing. Allen’s wife filed for divorce and a statement by Allen read that he does not even have money to buy a cheeseburger and hence, he cannot afford any alimony. Casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit had banned Allen due to his inability to pay off his debts. This is a true story of a hero to zero only because of gambling! 5. Ben Affleck We had Ben Affleck’s name popping up with Spider-Man Tobey. The ‘Batman’ actor who will be seen in more ‘Justice League’ movies has had his share of gambling issues. His gambling venture... Gambling is something which is considered a luxury sport. It is a pastime and an occasion for many people to network and grow.

Casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit had banned Allen due to his inability to pay off his debts. This is a true story of a hero to zero only because of gambling! 5. Ben Affleck We had Ben Affleck’s name popping up with Spider-Man Tobey. The ‘Batman’ actor who will be seen in more ‘Justice League’ movies has had his share of gambling issues. His gambling venture wasn’t so beneficial as the super hit 2013 movie ‘Runner, Runner’ and is rumored to have been to a rehab center to come outside or quit the habit of gambling. His interest towards gambling is natural as he won the CA State Poker Championship in 2004. He is also fond of the game blackjack. We are not sure of the financials, but Ben was exposed to quite some mental pressure due to gambling. 6. Ray Romano Ray is an actor, stand-up comedian, and is known for the popular TV show, ‘Everybody Loves Raymond.’ He has also received an Emmy award for his role in the hit TV show. He has given his voice for Manny in the ‘Ice Age’ movies. The 60-year-old actor was one of the first actors who began receiving huge paychecks for TV shows. In 2009, he went on to produce a show called ‘Men of a Certain Age.’ The show had a character named ‘Joe’ who was a gambling addict and he tried his best to stay away from it as much as possible. It was a surprise to note that the character of Joe was based on Ray himself, which was something the actor later admitted. Ray still participates in several poker events, but he now knows about his limited skill sets and hopefully is only doing so for fun or as a leisure activity. He isn’t going to casinos now and prefers online poker and similar gambling in smaller amounts. As revealed in the TV series based on Ray himself, he used to seek help from different people anonymously when the gambling debt took over his financial peace. 7. Joe Francis Joe Francis the ever so controversial film producer named for many controversies and publicities. The businessman had been accused by several actresses for casting couch and inappropriate behavior. He is best known for the ‘Girls Gone Wild’ series. Wynn Hotels and others have filed a legal suit against him for unpaid gambling debts. Allegedly or surprisingly, the debt of over $2 million Wynn was given a discount of about 30 percent. 8. John McCain John is a sort of political celebrity in the United States as a senior senator in the state of Arizona. At over 80 years of age, John was a Republican candidate in the 2008 elections against Barack Obama. However, from sources and close friends, it was learned that John had at a time in his life been very addicted to gambling. A stretch of eight hours of gambling and ten hours of poker all are in shame where John had stretched for over 14-16 hours on the table. The extent to which he was attached to gambling was worrying and it certainly affected his choices during his senior senator regime. 9. Charlie Sheen Charlie Sheen has given us many entrepreneurs or trading goals by his role in the very famous movie ‘Wall Street.’ With a bucket of hit films and tremendous fan following, Charlie is one of the most controversial actors that the industry has ever known. He has recently surfaced for non-payment of taxes. He owes over $5 million in taxes which is a huge problem, especially for such a celebrity. He is also known for various other controversies that include drugs, alcohol, women, etc. Now coming to his gambling updates, he is known to be a huge gambling addict as revealed by his former spouse during his divorce case. Charlie was in contact with a bookie even while transporting his wife to the hospital while she was pregnant before the birth of his daughter. Clearly, gambling had gained the highest priority in his life over the welcoming of his own daughter and this certainly weakened his personal family ties. Also, the report exposed that Charlie in his peak lost over $200,000 every week — all thanks to gambling. This surfaced in 2006 and about eight years later, Charlie told his fans and the media that he has overcome gambling and doesn’t do it anymore. But controversies still follow him with tax evasion and non-payment and we hope he loses all of his bad habits soon. 10. Charles Barkley Another basketball player who has lost huge in gambling is Charles Barkley. After retirement, Charlies is working as an analyst in the NBA tournament. The 55-year-old also had been struggling due to gambling. Charles confessed to having lost about $30 million because of his gambling addiction. He also took counseling and then a break for two years from gambling but is a very difficult addiction, he is back to gambling now. Now he admits to gambling in casinos but in a much more controlled, monitored, and restricted manner. You never know, you might have new news story surfacing about a new gambling debt from Charles, as gambling is a galloping enterprise and you are always playing with trouble. Let’s Learn from Celebrities and Let’s Go Gambling Big celebrities have been in huge gambling troubles and it is certainly worthy to learn from their experiences and be as distant as possible from gambling activities. We have seen many stories and there are very few people who have made a fortune from gambling. Most importantly, we must make sure it never becomes a habit and addiction. Addiction to any activity can be very harmful and these celebrities have already experienced these issues. If people at such heights are not spared by a gambling addiction, it is very difficult for us to remain sheltered. So, to end the celebrity gambling league, gambling occasionally isn’t bad, but making it a source of income, or a habit or addiction should be avoided. [Photo Credit: Pixabay].....»»

Figure Skater Ashley Wagner is "Furious" With Judges After Losing Out on 2018 Winter Olympics Team Placement

Ashley Wagner is sharing her heated reaction after finding out that she didn’t make the U.S. Olympic figure-skating team this year. The 26-year-old Olympic bronze medalist was given disappointingly low scores from judges at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Friday (January 5).

The 26-year-old Olympic bronze medalist was given disappointingly low scores from judges at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Friday (January 5). Ashley finished in fourth place and revealed to The Salt Lake Tribune that she was “absolutely furious.” “For me to put out two programs that I did at this competition as solid as I skated and to get those scores, I am furious, and I think deservedly so,” she shared. “I honestly think that at the end of the day, this is how I feel, and I feel like I need to stick up for myself, and I think that I delivered when I really needed to. I think all these girls delivered when they needed to, but I want to be on that Olympic team and I’m really mad that I’m in this position again.” Ashley finished in fourth in the U.S. Championships in 2014 as well and was given the chance to represent the country at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, but today it was announced that Ashley will serve as Team USA’s first alternate. The 2018 Winter Olympics, starting on February 8, would have marked Ashley‘s third Olympic experience (she was also a first alternate at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver). Bradie Tennell, Karen Chen and Mirai Nagasu will be competing for the United States in Pyeongchang next month. As an athlete, I'm allowed to be mad. As a senior competitor with over 10 years of experience, I'm allowed to question things. At the end of the day, I laid out my best and I'm going home proud! Congrats to the lovely ladies of the team, you've got me in your cheering squad now! — Ashley Wagner (@AshWagner2010) January 6, 2018.....»»

Russia Banned From 2018 Winter Olympics - Find Out What Happened

Russian teams have been banned from the 2018 Winter Olympics, set to kick off in South Korea in February.

This is due to an alleged state-backed doping scandal, which dates back to the 2014 Sochi Games. “This was an unprecedented attack on the integrity of the Olympic Games and sport. The IOC EB, after following due process, has issued proportional sanctions for this systemic manipulation while protecting the clean athletes. This should draw a line under this damaging episode and serve as a catalyst for a more effective anti-doping system led by WADA,” Thomas Bach, the head of the International Olympic Committee, said during a press conference. “As an athlete myself, I feel very sorry for all the clean athletes from all NOCs who are suffering from this manipulation. Working with the IOC Athletes’ Commission, we will now look for opportunities to make up for the moments they have missed on the finish line or on the podium.” Athletes from Russia who do compete will have to do so in neutral uniforms, and will be subject to strict anti-doping scrutiny. They will compete under “Olympic Athlete from Russia (OAR)” Reports suggest that Russia had their athletes Sochi urine samples tampered with by intelligence agents, who would swap them out via a hole in the wall of a lab......»»

Olympic Gold Medalist Jordyn Wieber Bravely Comes Forward For The First Time To Detail Larry Nassar Abuse

The fourth day of sentencing for Larry Nassar has begun. Olympic gold medalist Jordyn Wieber is now the fourth member of the "Fierce Five" to accuse the USA Gymnastics team doctor of molestation and sexual assault.

Olympic gold medalist Jordyn Wieber is now the fourth member of the "Fierce Five" to accuse the USA Gymnastics team doctor of molestation and sexual assault. While teammate Aly Raisman supported her from the courtroom, the 22-year-old athlete revealed for the first time that she is also a survivor of the disgraced doctor's abuse. Related: Larry Nassar Begs Judge To Stop Victim Impact Stories The decorated gymnast, who says the abuse began when she was 14, shared during her victim impact statement in front of the judge: "I thought that training for the Olympics would be hardest thing I would ever have to do. But the hardest thing I've ever had to do is process that I am a victim of Larry Nassar." She added: "My teammates and I were subjected to his medical care every month at the national team training center in Texas. He was allowed to treat us alone in hotels without any supervision.Nobody was protecting us, nobody was even concerned if we were being sexually abused. The lack of accountability from USAG, USOC and Michigan State [makes us] confused and disappointed." Wieber not only blasted the serial pedophile, but she also accused USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee of allowing this monster access to young girls. She said: "Larry Nassar is accountable. USA Gymnastics is accountable. The U.S. Olympic Committee is accountable. (USA Gymnastics') lack of accountability has caused me and many other girls to remain shameful, confused and disappointed. My teammates and friends have been through enough and now it's time for change. The current and future gymnasts do not deserve to live in anxiety, fear and being unprotected like I was."

There are now 122 total women willing to speak. You can continue to watch the proceeding live HERE. Our hearts are with the sister survivors and their families. [Image via NBC.].....»»
