Olympic Stud of the Day: Alexandre Bilodeau
Day 3’s Olympic Stud: Canadian Alexandre Bilodeau, who won the first gold on home soil (excuse me home SNOW) in the Men’s Moguls. The 22-year-old from Quebec is “an inspiration to an entire nation, especially his brother,” who was born with cerebral palsy and is an excellent cheerleader. Bilodeau, who is also skilled at making out with his girlfriend on-camera (yes!), did a back double full and stuck it clean! It was so great seeing the Canadian crowd completely flip out. (Watch.)
Honorable mentions: Johnny Spillane, the first American to medal in the Nordic Combined, Patrick Deneen and his pink goggles, the women’s U.S. hockey team for beating China 12-1, and Joe Biden for watching women’s hockey. Obviously I’m missing people (I just got home and have not had a chance to watch the pairs figure skating), so nominate your own Stud of the Day in the comments!
Deserves a mention: All the skiing uniforms totally look like jammies, but the U.S. men seemed especially ready for bedtime during the moguls. I feel like some of them should be clutching teddy bears for good luck and/or moral support. (Dramatization below.)
