Trick Shot Wednesday: That'll Do, Russia

RAWR - Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

TSW returns from the frigid Siberian climate of Sochi to, well, the frigid Siberian climate of South Bend.

Okay, right off the bat, I feel that I should apologize to our Russian friends for the good-natured session of target practice that we did last week. As much as we may have ridiculed their luxurious accommodations or taunted their hockey team [Ed. note: Larz, SO HELP ME, if you breathe or type a SINGLE word about Olympic hockey...], they probably gave it their best shot. I mean, it's no small feat to host a 17-day event that brings the world together to engage in reasonable, nation-uniting endeavors such as flying headfirst at 90 mph down an icy track on a miniature sled with your chin inches from the ice curling.

And of course, I would be remiss if I did not applaud the gold medals that the American couple from U of M won in figure skating; I can only assume that they found their inspiration when the J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Head Figure-Skating Football Coach Brady Hoke burst into their dressing room and bellowed, "They may take our all-time record in football, but they'll never take OUR ICE DANCING!!!!"

THE WINNERS

Best photoshop: clearwall doing a little multilingual mind-reading.

Best caption: occtipus tweaking Mr. Putin about his bumbling cartoon counterpart.

This week: Mike Brey and assistant coach Rod Balanis are really, really excited about beating Clemson. How do you think they are expressing their joy in this picture, dear readers? Is it an interpretive dance, an elaborate sideline handshake, or what? Comment and vote so we can all find out! You know, together!
