American skier Nick Goepper won a silver medal at the PyeongChang Olympics.
But you know how it was reported at the New York Post?
The “Lesser-known” skier.
Nick Goepper wins a silver medal and he doesn’t even warrant his name in the headline. Instead, he’s simply referred to as “the lesser-known American.”
Well, you want to know why he’s lesser-known?
Because apparently Nick Goepper went to the Olympics to compete.
Doesn’t he know that the people who become household names aren’t the ones who went to the Olympics to compete?
Instead, they’re the ones who suck all the oxygen out of the room.
Sure, we’ve all heard of Shani Davis, Lindsey Vonn, Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy.
But not because they are the pinnacle of athletics.
No. We’ve heard of them because they’ve spent their time attacking the White House, Trump and Pence. And, lest we forget, accusing a coin toss of being racist.
This “lesser-known” skier was competing in the same event as Gus Kenworthy.
And how’d it go? Well, Kenworthy came in dead last while this “lesser-known” skier won the silver.
But this brief article in the New York Post (via the AP) is even more ridiculous.
You see, Nick Goepper – this “lesser-known” guy – is mentioned by name only once.
But Gus Kenworthy – who came in dead last – is mentioned four times.
Because Gus Kenworthy turned the Winter Olympics into his soap box. He, like his fellow gay athlete Adam Rippon, wouldn’t shut the hell up about Mike Pence. It’s all they talked about.
From the news reports, I got the impression that Gus Kenworthy’s sport was straight-baiting.
We get it, Gus. You’re here; you’re queer. Now shut the hell up and ski.
Is it any wonder you lost?!
Apparently you were too busy pretending the PyeongChang Olympic Games was a ten-day gay pride festival.
Nick Goepper made the mistake of believing the Olympics were about sportsmanship, competition, and doing your best.
But they aren’t anymore.
Like everything else that gets infested by Leftism, the Olympics have been ruined.
And the media helped ruin them.
As a result, it’s Gus Kenworthy’s world and Nick Goepper is just livin’ in it.
It used to be the reason someone became a star at the Olympic Games is because he or she won. Olympic medalists became the household names.
If the Olympics were still about athletics, Nick Goepper’s name would make it into the headline. He’d be the household name – not the petty, childish loser who came in last.
