Your Olympic Babe O’ The Day

Meet Špela Rogelj, a 27-year old ski jumper from Slovenia. Špela started her career at the age of eight – EIGHT! – as her father and brother were both ski jumpers. She speaks Slovenian, German, Czech, and English.

Špela made her debut at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games when ski jumping for women was on the Olympic program for the first time, finishing 26th (22nd at PyeongChang 2018).

In seven World Championships appearances (2009-21), her best finish is 10th in 2015. Won a team silver medal in 2021, after just missing the podium in fourth in 2019.

She is four-time Junior World Championships medalist, winning a full set of medals with the team (2013 gold, 2014 silver, 2012 bronze) and an individual normal hill silver in (2011).

Špela is superstitious, and wears the same socks at every competition.

The Media Still Doesn’t Get It

A leftist hack writing for The New Yorker went to First Lady Melania Trump’s hometown in an effort to find some dirt. She chose… poorly.

Vendela Vida, a writer for The New Yorker, traveled to First Lady Melania Trump’s hometown in Slovenia for some reason, and discovered an extremely juicy piece of news.

Vida makes it to Sevnica, Slovenia, the town in Eastern Europe where the future first lady was born.

The writer peppers her piece with small put-downs of the country, pointing out the fact that some shops were closed and a waitress at a restaurant didn’t know whether a hamburger on the menu was “grass-fed” or not.

Finally, the big reveal — Vida discovers a dessert dish named after Melania Trump on a restaurant menu and asks the waitress if “people here like Melania?” to which she simply replied, “Of course.”

So this assclown travels all the way to Slovenia, insults the country and its people, then is shocked – SHOCKED – to find the locals admire Melania Trump? Money well spent.

Say what you want about President Trump – he speaks plainly and doesn’t always show grace – but Melania Trump has been a rather flawless First Lady thus far, exuding elegance, grace, and class.

Your Olympic Babe O’ The Day

Today’s babe is a little off the beaten path – in this case the path is located in Slovenia. Špela Rogelj is a 23-year old ski jumper, and she possesses the qualities prized by the superficial man.

Špela Rogelj (born 8 November 1994) is a Slovenian ski jumper. Rogelj began her ski jumping career at the age of thirteen, competing in Dobbiaco on 23 January 2008. This took place at Continental Cup level. She later competed in the 2009 Ski Jumping World Championships in Liberec, finishing 30th.

Two years later she finished second in the Junior World Championships in Otepää, beaten only by Coline Mattel. Rogelj has ten top-10 finishes in the women’s Continental Cup, with her best result being fifth in Ljubno on 22 January 2011.

The girl has talent, and it’s not limited to her good looks. There are more photos below the fold…

The Fountain Of Vermouth

Homer Simpson Dancing In BeerWhen most people hear the word “Slovenia,” they immediately think it is either a sexually transmitted disease or the name of Kim Kardashian’s demon spawn.

Slovenia, however, is a country in eastern Europe which lies along the Adriatic Sea. This diesel-choked hellhole would normally not be among someone’s top tourist destination, but that is about to change.

Zalec, a small town in central Slovenia, is famed locally for the hop farms that surround it in what is known as the “valley of green gold.” Soon, however, the town is likely be known for something else: a public beer fountain.

The project, which proponents say will create Europe’s first public beer fountain, gently gurgling local brews rather than water, has no set completion date. Once completed, visitors will pay around $6.75 for 10.5 fl oz, served in a commemorative mug, of one of a variety of locally produced beers.

I wonder if swimming is allowed, and if so, would there be a lifeguard on duty? Our family planned spend our summer vacation in Arizona, but I gotta admit, Slovenia just received a huge bump in the polls.

Slovenia Erects Border Fence

Slovenian Border Fence

Apparently, Slovenia wants to secure their borders from the Middle Eastern migration Islamic invasion, because racism. Or something.

Slovenia began erecting a razor wire fence along parts of its border with Croatia on Wednesday, saying it wanted better control over a tide of migrants flowing through the tiny country en route to other areas of Europe.

Around 180,000 people, many fleeing war in Syria and Afghanistan, have streamed into Slovenia since mid-October after trekking northwards along a Balkan corridor from Greece, most of them bound for Austria and then Germany.

The main point of disagreement in the EU is over mandatory national quotas to share out asylum seeking refugees and migrants among the 28 member states.

So the EU is demanding mandatory quotas for its member countries? I guess since Germany and Sweden have adopted the misery loves company approach/ They have already been conquered, so the more the merrier!

I love the quote, “many fleeing war in Syria and Afghanistan.” If you have seen the photos, most of these poor, fleeing migrants are young males. I guess one man’s migrant is another man’s Soldier of Allah.
