Those German figure skaters are such clowns

Check out those Germans.

The Deutsch figure skating pair, Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy, were dressed as sad clowns last night. Here’s the breakdown:

  • Multi-colored, humorously large buttons.
  • Expressive eyebrows painted on.
  • Are those teardrop tattoos? What are the odds that two German murderers are also both figure skaters? The pair ended up in second place for the short program, trailing the Chinese pair by just 0.7, but I think the Germans were sending a message with those teardrops.…DON’T MESS WITH THE GERMAN PAIR. That means you, Chinese pair. And That means you, judges.

      About Me

      When I was fifteen, my baseball coach condemned me to a stands-bound life. "Graham, you're a pretty good fielder," he said. "But unfortunately it's easier to teach kids how to field than it is to show them how to hit." Stung by this unceremonious end to my baseball career, I trained my crosshairs on his breed. Over time, I have come to realize that he isn't unique, American sports are full of coaches just like him....

      Recently, I have written weekly Yankee columns for the Bronx News Network blog, and articles for the Norwood News, a Bronx newspaper, as well as Sumter, SC's newspaper, The Item. I am currently a Master's candidate at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
