Winter Olympics 2006
Spain wins Olympic gold chase
With the Olympic games of 2006 coming to a close, all that really matters
is who brought home the most gold. And while Germany won the most medals,
and Sweden got most important one due to their “golden generation” in
hockey, the fight only has one clear winner. The country that brings home
the largest amount of gold is Spain, mostly (entirely) due to it's conquistadors,
who have been raiding, looting and generally pillaging all of Turin and
the surrounding neighbourhood for gold the past weeks. While some claim
that this is a terrible travesty of all that the Olympic games stand for,
others argue that nobody cares about the Winter Olympics anyway, and thus
it doesn't matter. The Spanish say the conquistadors are a large part
of their history, and as such should be entirely free to do as they please.
Aside from the entirely unsportsmanlike conduct of pillaging an Olympic
town, and all those steroids used before such a pillage, there's also
the added fear of increased diseases, many fearing that the conquistadors
bring with them diseases such as smallpox, or the black-plague, or that
terrible odour that comes from not having any soap while wearing a rather
heavy piece of armour.
Whatever may happen the next Olympic Games, all that really matters is that Sweden won the gold in hockey, and that's something no thieving Spaniard can take.
