Couldn't find a suitable thread so mods plse re-allocate if you see fit.

Private Eye used to have a little section called ' Colemanballs' after the late David Coleman.

Classic on BBC News today from the aptly named Andy Swiss

'Britain has not traditionally been a winter sports nation....'

Say what ?

Henry Lunn, who encouraged the building of the funicular and almost singlehandedly created the winter sports industry in Mürren, and his son Arnold, who wrote the rules for downhill skiing, staged the first slalom in 1922 and the first world championships in 1931 (both held in Mürren), and in 1936 persuaded the Olympics to accept downhill skiing in the face of vigorous opposition from the Scandinavians, who favoured cross-country skiing and ski-jumping.

"Without the British we would still be a Alpine farming village," says Anna-Marie Goetschi, who is organising the celebrations. It will be an Anglo-Swiss event. Bernard Lunn, grandson of Arnold and son of Peter Lunn, who captained the British Olympic team at the 1936 Winter Olympics, will be there, suitably dressed in Edwardian gear.

Is that the bint who's horrified to find out that she actually has to go back to do her day job due to funding cuts?

watch the fireworks and the curling can be quite exiting although I shan't be pushing to watch it, otherwise unless we've got a world class jumping plasterer I can't say I'm bothered.

is anyone runnning a pool on how many russian builders get suicided? they haven't even got enough pillows for one each.

Ooooh apparently TATU are perfoming - allways wondered what happened to them - must be getting on a bit. I wonder if the singing grandmas will be on.

Adrian Chiles just claimed the Germans had turned up in Russia in their worst outfits ever

Was he including Stalingrad in that?

oh dear.... how long's the cattle truck train trip from Sochi to those Siberian gulags again? The artistic creator of the Olympic symbol will be waving goodbye to his family for a wee while.... If the lace doily thing on the right hand side was green he could at least claim it was a sinister plot by by that nasty BRITISH Petroleum lot again....

I've no idea why the organisers drafted in 30,000 police and interior ministry troops for this shindig. 3 squadron loads of Olga and her ilk would have sorted security for less than a couple of hundred roubles....
