SportsIrish Rowers Give an Interview, Win the Whole Dang Olympics
They may have won silver in rowing, but they get gold in being hilarious interview subjects.
Paul and Gary O’Donovan are a pair of Irish brothers and Olympic rowers who did their nation proud by bringing home the silver medal. So they did what any Olympic heroes would do, they gave an interview to a television network back home. But unlike most Olympic interviews, this one had no clichés about the triumph of the spirit or how they owe it all to God. No, this interview was all about peeing, pizza, and how no matter how fake the background behind them looked, it was totally real.
I'm a fan of any athletes who seem to be in on the joke of how ridiculous Olympic coverage can be, so as far as I'm concerned they should all take a page out of the O'Donovans' handbook. Tell us about how much you had to drink so you could pee for your doping test. Tell us about what you've been eating. Tell us how you got to put on your "podium pants" and how you "saw the mother and the father." I'll take this to shouting out sponsors any day of the week.
