Scotty Lago Sent Home From Olympics

0219 scotty lago splash Scotty Lago Sent Home From Olympics
In some serious bullshit, Scotty Lago got bounced from the Olympics today because of this picture that showed up on TMZ this morning. The official word that was just circulated says Lago volunteered to leave and miss the closing ceremonies but word around town is that the IOC wanted to take his medal away and going home was a compromise. Seriously, on the scandal scale, this pic rates like a 2 and to fuck a 22 year old kid over for something as PG as a little medal biting is ridiculous. Rad Collector is in Vancouver right now and can tell you that what’s happening across this whole city all day and night during the games is a lot more obscene than this. It’s a further mistreatment of snowboarding and snowboarding culture that doesn’t want or need to adhere to archaic Olympic jock standards. Snowboarding is supposed to be fun. Read the AP story here.

  1. No fuckin way.

    Ya, it’s a mistreatment of snowboarding and it’s culture alright…not a mistreatment of women or anything. Sorry there are standards of decency of being a high class athlete. It’s just about having fun for you and having no respect for anyone else? Typical snowboarding attitude. That’s why snowboarding has such a bad name cause of the few guys like you that have no class.

    Hey Peter, how about the girl in the photo? she wanted to suck a bronze medal cock. good for her and him.

  4. Deka:

    not surprised at all Olympics are about advertising dollars. fuck it, we’ve been good without Olympics for all these years. Hopefully I’ll bring the hood up in there the we’ll see whats up!

  5. Nailmaven:

    I agree with Peter if this is how snowboarding is represented at the olympics maybe they should remove it from the winter games. Although why should other atheletes pay a price for one idiots behaviour you dont see Shaun White in a bar drunk off his ass acting like a fool with women and further more what the hell is wrong with young girls now a days stickin there heads in a guys crotch that really earns you respect. GET A ROOM! This guy was a poor represenative for the US and he deserved to be sent home hope he dosent join the US Team in Russsia! thats all we need!!

    He just won an olympic medal for christ sake give the kid a break.. Im suprised he didnt do something more outrageous honestly.. dude is insane..

  7. Not sure this can be boiled down the “typical snowboarding attitude” maybe typical drunk 22 yr old who is celebrating the greatest victory of his life by getting hammered and having girls all around him. Too bad that damn paparazzi happened to take a pretty funny/sort of inappropriate picture.

    I can to recall a skier getting kicked off the team in Torino for worse behavior and a 3 medal athlete in Vancouver not getting kicked off the Torino team who admittedly went out and got hammered before his events. At least Scotty waited till after his event to celebrate the Olympic spirit by letting a cute girl bite his medal.
    Go Scotty, Go USA, Go Snowboarders.
