Sunday Services

Since the family and I will be traveling north today to see the New Jersey Devils play the Buffalo Sabres, I figured today’s services can revolve around a gorgeous hockey defender: Nina Pirogova.

Nina Borisovna Pirogova (January 26, 1999) is a Russian ice hockey player for Tornado Moscow Region and the Russian national team. She participated at the 2015 and 2016 IIHF Women’s World Championships.

Not only is Nina crazy stupid hot, but she also shares a birthday with The Great One: Wayne Gretzky.

There are more photos below the fold…

In Soviet Russia, Ship Sinks You!

Forget Russian collusion; the big story these days is Russian collision.

A floating dock sank early morning in Murmansk, dropping a crane on the deck of the Admiral Kuznetsov carrier, the United Shipbuilding Corporation said.

The corporation’s chief, Alexei Rakhmanov, said the 70-ton crane left a hole of 215 square feet, but added that it didn’t damage any of the ship’s vital systems. Rakhmanov said it may have been caused by a sharp power surge that led to pumps’ failure.

Rakhmanov acknowledged, however, that the loss of the huge, 80,000-ton dock would disrupt the planned modernization of other Russian navy ships. The dock is the only structure of that capacity that Russia has, and it wasn’t immediately clear whether it could be lifted.

Here’s a novel idea; instead of paying billions for a floating dock, why not try building one near, let’s say, land? The country’s been around for 1,200 years and it’s just as backwards now as it was in 862 A.D.

Trump Pulls Out Of U.S.-Russia Nuke Treaty

President Trump is planning to withdraw from a U.S.-Russia missile treaty, after claiming Russia has continually violated the pact.

President Donald Trump said Saturday he would pull out of a Cold-War era treaty with Russia that limited the number of missiles in each country. Trump said Moscow had violated the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty and he would halt the agreement.

“We’re going to terminate the agreement and we’re going to pull out,” Trump said when leaving a rally in Nevada Saturday afternoon. He said the U.S. would pull out “and then we are going to develop the weapons” unless Russia and China agree to a new deal, though China isn’t currently a party of the agreement.

“Russia has violated the agreement. They have been violating it for many years,” the president said. “And we’re not going to let them violate a nuclear agreement and go out and do weapons and we’re not allowed to.”

Wow, it’s almost like President Trump believes the axiom “Peace through strength.” What an odd position for a man who obviously holds allegiance to Vladimir Putin.

“I Must Break You.”

Well, I’m back from vacation, and I can assure you my trip was much better than this one.

A giant Russian man – we’ll call him Gort – took out more than a half-dozen men inside a nightclub – with his fists – after a drunken man bumped into him on the dance floor.

The fight begins when two large men bump into each other on a crowded dance floor. One immediately punches the other, who pushed him away. A flurry of blows later and the first victim is out cold.

A smaller man is then struck, falling over and lying still in the center of the dance floor. One of the victims appeared to have been trying to stay out of the melee when he was brutally laid out.

As the crowd backs away the attacker carries on, knocking out a third man who falls next to the first. A man in a white shirt tries to calm him down but is punched and forced onto a sofa.

The brute then turns on a fifth man, who is trying to get him off the man on the couch. A sixth man tries to intervene, punching the attacker, before he is then himself struck and forced down onto a second sofa.

A seventh and final man tries to intervene, and is also knocked unconscious in a single blow – falling across the legs of those already out cold.

Jesus Gort, Brick Top said “Go down in the seventh,” not “Take down seven!” You absolutely positively need to see the video at the link. Trust me, it’s awe-inspiring. Although I laughed so hard I actually felt like a bad person afterward.

Hey wait a minute, I’m fairly sure I witnessed this exact same scene in John Wick, but the body count was not nearly as high.

In Soviet Russia, Brush Cleans You!

A Russian man met his end after slipping in his bathroom and being impaled by a toilet brush. The Ty-D-Bol Man has been held for questioning.

A Russian man was killed after slipping in his bathroom and getting the handle of a toilet brush wedged in his skull through his eye socket.

The 60-year-old was taken to a hospital near the Russian capital Moscow with the blood-soaked brush still jammed in his head.

Surgeons had to ‘open the man’s skull’ in an attempt to remove the handle which was embedded in his head through his right eye. But his condition deteriorated and he died days later.

Yikes. In a few months we’ll find out the man was a vocal critic of Vladimir Putin, and insulted him days before the “accident.”

In Soviet Russia, Team Cheers You!

Meet Natalya Nemchinova. Natalya is just your normal, everyday crazy stupid hot soccer fan, who just happens to have an interesting professional career.

Photos of Natalya Nemchinova were beamed around the world after she was spotted sporting a skimpy white ‘Russia’ top inside Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium for the opening game.

The local beauty rapidly received widespread acclaim for her looks, but eagle-eyes fans soon tracked down her true identity. Online detectives quickly discovered she was an adult film actress – after zooming in on her Fan ID ahead of the Egypt match on Tuesday night.

They then discovered she has appeared in X-rated movies under such aliases as Natali Nemtchinova, Natalia Andreeva, Delilah G, Danica, Amanda, and Annabell.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that. The World Cup is usually a hotbed of hot bods, and Natalya is no exception. That said, this is the most bizarre World Cup in my lifetime. Perennial powerhouses like Argentina, Germany, and Colombia look awful, while teams like Croatia – CROATIA! – look unbeatable.

In Soviet Russia, Tank Drives You

A liquor store in Northern Russia welcomed a new customer this week after he drove an armored personnel carrier through the front window.

A man rammed an armored personnel carrier into a shop window before climbing through the rubble to steal a bottle of wine in a town in northern Russia on Wednesday morning.

The man had swiped the vehicle from a privately-run motorsport training ground nearby, driven it through a forest and into Apatity, a small town just south of the Arctic circle.

Struggling to turn around in a narrow street, the man, whom witnesses described as being drunk, proceeded to slam the tank into the window of the “Family” convenience store.

A liquor store in Russia? What are the odds? I do, however, appreciate the fact this Bolshevik plowed an APC into a store to steal one bottle of wine. It must have been something top-shelf, like Thunderbird.

Speaking Of Russia

An American strike fighter destroyed a T-72 main battle tank Saturday. The tank was being operated by pro-Syrian forces, and was firing on U.S. special operations personnel.

A US jet operating in Syria destroyed a Russian-made T-72 battle tank near Al Tabiyeh, Syria, Saturday.

The US has been training, equipping, and backing the SDF rebels in Syria’s civil war for years as Russia has provided similar assistance to forces loyal to the Syrian government in close proximity.

Fox News’ Lucas Tomlinson first reported the news of the tank’s destruction and said three crew members were killed, though their identities and affiliations were unclear. Tomlinson said the tank was destroyed after “pro-regime forces” fired on US special operations troops near the location where 500 pro-government forces attacked a headquarters used by SDF and US troops last week.

This… will get messy. Between destroying a Russian tank and Syria shooting down an Israeli fighter, the Syrian conflict just got much more complicated.
