The Awesomest Olympic Games Quote ever!

Via Deadspin, Norwegian cross-country skier Odd-Bjørn Hjelmeset (c'mon "Odd-Bjorn"?) explains why he was not up to snuff and his team only got the silver medal:

My name is Odd-Bjørn Hjelmeset. I skied the second lap and I fucked up today. I think I have seen too much porn in the last 14 days. I have the room next to Petter Northug and every day there is noise in there. So I think that is the reason I fucked up. By the way, Tiger Woods is a really good man.

Petter Northug, now I'm like 1/4 norwegian and I'm from Minnesota, so I have an intrinsic knowledge of the language as long as you don't expect me to read, spell, or speak it.

And I can tell you, Olympians should not room next to Peter North. And as the whole quote makes self-evident, keep the snow below your skis, not below your nostrils.
