To recap your Olympic "triumph", finishing fourth in Olympic hockey isn't that bad. You played with heart and put your stake in the ground. You are going to be back, hungrier than ever, in 2014.
Not knowing much about hockey, I can tell you I enjoyed your style on the ice more than Finland. I also like the fact you checked out the Budding Ventriloquist Winter Olympic Coverage (TM), something the Fins decided just wasn't all that important to them.
In fact, I feel so snubbed, I'm telling my favorite Fin joke just to poke them:
Question: Two Fins are talking. How can you tell which one is the extrovert and which one is the introvert?(Sorry, my Slovakian friends. Didn't mean to cut in on your blogtime with a rant about the Fins. But I'm sure you agree they deserve it.)
Answer: The extrovert is the one looking at the other guy's shoes.
Okay, Okay. I hear you. Stop the phone calls. Save your stamps, hold the hate mail. The logo for the Ventriloquist in Space Program (VISP) that was on yesterday's post needs some work. And I'm working on it.
I will tell you, there's a market for astronaut and ventriloquist clip art. There's a surprisingly huge absence of it right now. I know that will change once VISP is successful, but right now it's all scratch work.
Pioneering isn't all tea, crumpets, and grand pianos, ya know.
