Look, we all know it’s coming. That cringe-inducing Nancy Kerrigan & Tonya Harding Olympic special was only a preview of coming attractions.

The Comedy that was the Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding Special

After watching the Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding special on NBC right before the Olympic Closing Ceremonies, there was too much unintentional comedy for me to not go back and screencap the awesomeness with the TV on mute (I’ve had mill fill of figure skating talk for the next four years).

KSK Mock Draft: Ban An Olympic Event

In the giving, inclusive, and healthily competitive spirit of the Olympic Games, we here at Kissing Suzy Kolber have once again faced off in yet another KSK Mock Draft.  It’s no secret that, like, almost half of Olympic events suck.  More often than not, they’re either boring, corrupt, or boringly corrupt.  We took great pleasure in, one by one, picking events to jettison...

1994 brings back memories, like the last Chiefs playoff win

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Ah, yes, 1994. Back then, a gallon of gas cost $1.11. A stamp (remember them?) cost 29 cents. It was the year when figure skater Tonya Harding and her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, became household names for all the wrong reasons before the Winter Olympics, as skater Nancy Kerrigan and her wounded knee knew all too well. It was the year an entire nation, it seemed...
