SGALGG: Winter Olympics Edition

I can’t believe they’re over. All those amazing athletes, all that human drama, all that spectacular triumph – heck, even a little heartbreak. But now, now all we have the memories of super hot sports stars at the top of their physical form, hugging each other like grabby high school students. What? You have your memories and I have mine. So, in honor of the Vancouver Winter Olympics, one last look back in wonder. A Straight Gals* Acting Like Gay Gals to remember. (*Note: I cannot vouch for all these ladies straightness. And when I say all, mostly I mean you, hockey gals. Beer in cans and big old cigars? Just saying.)

Kaillie Humphries & Heather Moyse, Canada, Bobsled, GoldI think the big, brawny gals of bobsled are all kinds of sexy. There, I said it.

Shelly-Ann Brown & Helen Upperton, Canada, Bobsled, SilverSee, told ya.

Anette Norberg & Eva Lund, Sweden, Curling, GoldSame goes for curling. But mostly I think that’s just because the women keep screaming HAAAARD at each other.

Cheryl Bernard, Canada, Curling, SilverSee, told ya.

Bingyu Wang & Yin Liu, China, Curling, BronzeAll the kissing helps, too.

Stephanie Beckert & Anna Friesinger-Postma, Germany, Speedskating Team Pursuit, GoldWhat the Winter Olympics lack in tank tops, they make up for in clingy body suits.

Lee Sang-Hwa, South Korea & Wang Beixing, China, Speedskating, Gold & SilverSee, told ya.

Tatjana Huefner & Natalie Geisenberger, Germany, Luge, Gold & BronzeLuge is fucking crazy. Ditto for skeleton.

Claudia Nystad & Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle, Germany, Cross Country, SilverIs cross country the speed walking of the Winter Games? Just putting it out there.

Tania Vicent & teammates, Canada, Short Track, SilverCuddle huddle!

Marie Dorin & teammate, France, Biathlon, BronzeI don’t know who is hugging Marie*, but if I were her I’d be doing it, too. She’s adorable, and she can shoot things well. (*Apparently it’s Sylvie Becaert. Lucky gal.)

Ireen Wust & teammate girlfriend, Netherlands, Speedskating, GoldShe’s actually a GGALGG. So, you know, niiiice.

Team Canada, Hockey, GoldO, Canada. You are so adorably gay Canadian. Don’t ever change. Though, seriously, after these last 16 days I think I’m a little bit in love with Canada. Thanks, neighbors. Awesome Winter Games, eh?

Seriously, I think almost everyone on the women's hockey team is gay...

Also, I was an athlete in college, and there was not NEARLY that much kissing and hugging, and I played field hockey, for chistssake! I think it must be the Olympic spirit or something...

On behalf of Canada (not that I'm authorized).... We love you too! And, we're totallly gay! Especially, the ladies of the hockey team. Amen.

Kirsten said...

Love it so hard! And we love you and hereby make you an Honorary Canadian!

The girl with Ireen Wust is her girlfriend, not just a teammate. Her girlfriend Sanne is also a speedskater though.
And the Dutchies love Canada too!

I think the teammate hugging is Sylvie Becaert.
There is also another photo of them in wich Becaert kisses Dorin's cheek after the relay. The photo is #29 at this link:

sorry the first sentence of my comment above should have been

I think the teammate hugging Marie Dorin is Sylvie Becaert.

Any thoughts on Dana Delany on Desperate Housewives? She has really represented a lot of steamy tension for girl and girl on girl action. China Beach, Exit to Eden, L Word (how hot was she with Jennifer Beals) and now on primetime.

Ah, yes. Olympics are over... 2012 can come, and I don't mean you, apocalypse, but London! Yeah for us Europeans.

I loved to watch the diversity and emotions of the competitions and participants. So much hard work and luck for one of those special moments in their lives.

Some of the pictures do scream gaaaay, indeed. :)

Check out Lindsey Vonn and Maria Riesch, only the helmet keeps them apart:

Kidding, they (still) are best friends, according to interviews.

During the closing ceremonies the Canadian broadcast cut to Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse in the audience where Kaillie was leaning her head on Heather's shoulder, and Heather leaned her head on Kaillie's head. They looked like the cutest couple ever!! And during the procession, they were walking together linking their arms(I'm not 100% sure on this one, it was a pretty quick cut). Plus, they're both on the national rugby team, that has to count for something!

oh, and here's another Anette Norberg and Eva Lund kiss. And I think they really get into this one. :P

You're not snarking about cross country skiing and speed walking, are you? Because both of those sports are fucking HARD. You know how fast those people walk? Faster than I can run. And cross country skiing is the most aerobically taxing sport out there. More than swimming; more than cycling; more than running.

And with that out of the way, I say a heartfelt thank you to Ms. Snarker for sharing all the SGALGG love!

Ali said...

pretty sure Kaillie Humphries & Heather Moyse are not just ALGG. They were super cuddly, all the time. Also: not brawny at all when you see them in person.

Ali said...

... not that there's anything wrong with brawniness, she added awkwardly.

LizW said...

Hockey Canada officially apologized for the party the Canadian gals had after their gold medal win, whereas I saw absolutely nothing wrong with it! They deserved to have a little fun after all the hard work they put in. Made for lots of ALGG photo ops too!!
