Muppet Kanye: Olympic Stud of the Day...?

Ok, so technically he is competing in the "Unified Games," not the Olympics. Also he is technically some sort of Muppet-like creature that looks (somewhat) like famous rapper Kanye West, not a real human athlete. But come on! Have you seen that little puppet sprint? So much heart. So much adversity overcome. So much use of the word "champion." Just check out the Jason Lezak-esque victory from behind he pulls off in Kanye’s new music video (below; h/t). If that doesn’t qualify as Olympically studly, I dunno what does. What do you say — ‘Ye or nay?

    Cool Steely Dan sample.

    Great. Now I will be laughing whenever I hear that song on my ipod.

  • Silv

    I nominate Nastia Liukin. Such elegance, talent, and powerful talent all wrapped up in one graceful young lady. She made the U.S. proud last night..

  • KG

    nastia liukin. at first i was rooting for shawn johnson bec she’s just so adorable, but then nastia showed her finesse and grace in the balance beam and floor. when she started tearing up when the announcer said “gold medalist and olympic champion,” i lost it as well.

    The ONLY choice for Olympic Stud of today should be Nastia Liukin. Finally someone other than the Chinese won a gold medal in the gymnastics competition. She deserves to be stud of the day – with an honorable mention to Shawn Johnson, who made it the first ever gold-silver double in gymnastics for the US.

  • Nay

    With all the great performances last night and you want to nominate a muppet. I love the muppets but in no way does one deserve to be stud of the day

  • jcarla

    I don’t think muppet Kayne is the actual OSD. They’re just having fun because of the video.

  • Jackie

    What about whatever gymnast used the theme from ‘Pirates of the Carribean’ as her floor routine song? I heard it when Nastia and Shawn were on the beam I think and I FREAKED out. Gymnastics to Pirates? Brillz.

    I nominate Co-Studs Rebecca Soni and Nastia Liukin. Soni because she upset gold favorite Leisel Jones AND got a world record and Liukin for doing a wonderful job and winning all-around despite the horrible scores given by a biased judging panel. Honorable mentions: Lochte for having the audacity lol of beating favored teammate Peirsol and Johnson for doing a flawless floor routine and getting silver.

  • Em

    Not even NBC’s announcer expected Rebecca Soni to pull off a win in that race, much less grab a new world record. What a great moment!

  • Lauri

    I nominate Ryan Lochte. For years he’s been under Phelps’ shadow and he finally won his first individual gold medal last night. Congrats Ryan!

  • Tate

    Until the IOC strips those Chinese preteen gymnasts of their gols, I’m voting for the muppet.

  • Tate

    Oops, I meant golds. But you all knew that…

  • onethousandpieces

    Well, if the Muppet doesn’t make the cut, you just know what Kanye’s going to say: “HELL NO!”

  • Anne

    And, bonus, Lochte is Hot. Like Phelps, but hot he ain’t.
