Withdrawal

I’ve spent the last 24 hours deep in thought. As the Olympics have come to an end, it was time for me to reflect, to ponder the greatness, and get back to ignoring hockey. What have I learned in the last two weeks? Where have I been? What does it all mean? Why don’t I have any booze left? It’s a lot to think about. It’s like houseguests just left. After two weeks of being in my home the Olympics have finally departed. They’ve left me only with soiled Norwegian pants in the hamper and my thoughts of them. Oh, and visions of sugarplums AND giant inflatable beavers. Is there some type of Olympic methadone I can take?

  1. They're not real Olympics!!! Pull yourself together man! (says the Aussie, shaking your shoulders and slapping your face)

  2. Ow! It's not like I have a problem...it's just recreational. I can stop at any time, wait, did I just see an international bowling competition on tv? Gotta go.

  3. If you get hold of that Olympics methadone let me know. Cause right now I'm really jonesing for some curling. I've got all these channels there must be some on somewhere...

  5. If you're Canadian, the Tim Horton's Brier is this weekend in Halifax. TSN should be airing the sweet, sweet, donut-y, tim bit-y, bad coffee infused curling... mmmmmmm *drool*

    Otherwise... I think you're stuck with nhl...

  6. Once Aussies win more gold, I will definitely help you out. But until then, I'll continue to think it's dork Olympics. Having said that, I do think addiction transference is the way forward: The Football (Soccer) World Cup's on the horizon, and I see you've got your bowling to tied you over! Good boy!

  7. I am going to suffer withdrawal from your hilarious Olympics posts! They have been keeping me going through a bunch of bullshit this last couple of weeks.

  9. The only gold Australia is going to see at the soccer world cup is when they pull their ridiculous jerseys over their heads.

    But then that would first require them working as a team and scoring a goal.

  11. Olympic video online, dude. Choose your event, choose your moment, and watch over and over.
    I mean, I support your attempt to get off the stuff. It's just that I have this really great laptop you could use and can point you to all the Costas-free clips. Free.

  12. Free? Yeah sure Naptime, that's just until I'm hooked. Next thing you know we'll be meeting in alleys so I can get my fix...help me Officer McGruff!

  13. Oh and FUCK yes I will complain.

  14. I'm with you. I'm in major withdrawal. Sunday night as I was going to bed, I thought "Man, I've finally got my life back." And then, no sooner had I finished that thought when I realized, "But I'm going to miss those crazy sports. I might actually miss Bob Costas..."

    What the hell is wrong with us?

  15. Does no one really enjoy hockey? How sad. Don't you know that sometimes you can throw an octopus on the ice? That bears repeating: You can throw an OCTOPUS on the ice.

  16. Oh, sure, Dr. No, it's only free until you want the premium events. But, hey, I'll cut you a discount because Harker's already paying for the good stuff.
