    Performers Frantically Trying To Incorporate Spewing Sewage Pipe Into Rio Opening Ceremony
    [​IMG]

    RIO DE JANEIRO—Looking around at one another with a mix of dismay and confusion while continuing their choreography, performers at Maracanã Stadium frantically attempted to incorporate a ruptured, spewing sewage pipe into the Rio Olympics opening ceremony Friday. “We knew billions of people around the world were watching, so once we saw that pipe burst, we just started making up a routine around it,” said 24-year-old Maria Santos, one of dozens of samba dancers who sashayed around the pipe and performed sultry hip movements while their elaborate feathered costumes were drenched in a torrent of human excrement. “It wasn’t easy, especially pretending like some of the dancers vomiting was part of the show. But once we all got our kicks in sync to the beat of the pipe spurting a mix of urine and shit, everything came together pretty well.” At press time, Games organizers were trying to continue smiling and clapping as they watched a sinkhole open up inside the stadium and swallow the Olympic cauldron whole.

    That story is hilarious. Team USA has a cruise ship to hang out on- yet they decided to go to a place that anyone in Rio knows is a brothel, thorn hunny around for a few rounds before leaving. Yeeaaaaah, that's what happened. I find it funnier that it was as De- players.

    Gonna miss those slightly terrible, yet effective lobs Dell throws. This Aussie tell I'd really good. Maybe goof enough to medal.

    Also funny that 4 of theit 5 starters have NBA rings. Pretty sure that's more than the US Olympic starters (depending on who starts).

    Bad move by the Cavs to let him walk.. We didn't do shit in the offseason, so.. there was really no point to it.

    I still say we could have crowdfunded the luxury tax bill.

    Anyone know where you can find box scores for these games?

    Delly is looking like prime Steve Nash with defense in the fourth quarter today.
