Russian can' t believe his ears

Russian can' t believe his ears

There are 11 comments on the www.theglobeandmail.com story from Feb 14, 2011, titled Russian can' t believe his ears. In it, www.theglobeandmail.com reports that:

Ivan Skobrev was ready to hear the Russian anthem after winning the men's world all-around speed skating championship Sunday at the Olympic Oval in Calgary, but what he heard instead was something completely foreign.

Music started, then stopped. Then another song played. Skobrev's coach Kosta Poltavets identified them as the Bulgarian and Belarusian anthems.

“Two times, no Russian anthem. I don't know that music,” Skobrev said. “Maybe Canadians don't like Russians. I don't know for what reason. Because we beat them in hockey, maybe that's why.”

To be a sore looser doesn't mean to have a sense of humor, but something contrary.

Hey Owl, the dude with the ISP of Bern, Vermont is not French. He is a russian troll living in the USA . He is just a failed russian junk dealer and rabid anti-American.

That is even better. I just looked at the comic section of my local newspaper. It had a cartoon of Elmer Fudd that I swear looks like Putin. Or Putin looks like Elmer Fudd. Elmer and Putin even act the same. Just put Bugs Bunny as the USA, and watch Putin Fudd try and catch that waskly wabbitt. hahaha.
