Olympics stuff they don’t want you to see…

Blog Guy, Thanks for covering Olympics sports like the Human Slingshot. Are there other sports the mainstream media hide from us?

Sure. There’s a whole dark underbelly of Olympics sports they don’t put on Wheaties boxes. Like Bare-Knuckle Self-Fighting, shown here. You should see how this guy looked after he defeated himself. If he wakes up, he’ll get a gold medal.

I had no idea! I’d love to watch that! What else?

Well, Olympic Dog-Boxing should get more attention, because dogs can beat the best human boxers. This year’s gold went to Chela. She could really give our human team some pointers.

Are you just saying that because Chela is a pointer?

Yeah, maybe. But I haven’t even mentioned the really violent event, Javalin Throwers vs. Synchronized Swimmers…
