That is just wrong. These are not two athletes from the country of Krispy and Kreme. You're looking at Matt Lauer and Al Roker from NBC's Today Show. Don't know which country the uniforms are from but I'm going to guess Fairyland. They're trying the two man luge. The idea of a two man luge confuses me. If any sport in the Olympics is Brokeback, it's this one. Forget men's figure skating and Johnny Weir in a swan outfit.
But two men on one luge. One man is on bottom. One man is on top. Right on top of the jewels. You get the picture.
We would think the heavier person would be on the bottom of the luge. Who wants the big guy crushing the small guy? So did Matt and Al. However the heavier person is on top. When they realized that, Al just laughed so hard while Matt looked like he was staring down the barrel of a gun aimed by Dick Cheney.
The sight of Al Roker putting his lean, yet still large, body on top of Matt Lauer is just wrong. Luckily the Winter Olympics are only once every four years.
