Plushenko Tangos His Way to European Gold

Jan 28, 2012 Full story: en.rian.ru 44

Evgeny Plushenko tangoed his way to European championships gold on Saturday, emphatically announcing his return to the international scene with a near perfect free skate that left the competition trailing in his masterful wake.

The 29-year-old Russian suppressed the pain of a knee and back injury to execute a glorious succession of jumps and spins that began with a textbook quadruple toe loop, earning first place from compatriot Artur Gachinsky in second and Florent Amodio of France in third.

kubko,
then my question is :
why do you watch handball, since no kissing or hugging goes on ?
Russians are into some Plushonka & Polaks are into hand ballers ?
Admittedly, there was some kissing among Serbian players going on there, the southern way - it's not what I look forward to in games of course though, sorry bácsi. It was an entertaining game, although the refs were close to ruining it with some shite calls in favour of the hosts. The Russians have a special player in handball as Pluszczenko is in figure skating (although the two sports are not comparable)- Konstantin Igropulo is a heck of a player.

kubko,

recently, I have read you kiss just about anybody in the streets of Polakia.
Any truth to it ?
Even your pal Ape from NJ attested to it.

If Plushko danced his way to gold, then why Smelly can not tango his way to the nearest cemetery ?
Wouldn´t this world be better off without this dog ?
