Rootin’ Putin

Welcome to new hockey training facility. In Siberia: With Russian President Vladimir Putin watching from the stands, Russia’s men’s hockey team was eliminated from Olympic medal contention.

Russia lost, 3-1, to Finland, despite a last-ditch effort by Putin who dashed from the stands in the final minutes, tossed aside the Russian goalie, ripped off his shirt and deflected pucks with his bare torso.

Found something they’re good at: Cossacks, authorized by Russian police, attacked members of the punk group Pussy Riot as it tried to perform in Sochi during the Olympics.

Putin, still shirtless from his hockey heroics, presented gold medals to the Cossacks for Slopestyle Dissent Suppression and the 500-meter Horsewhip.
