Wake N’ Blog: In Russia, Asses Parachute On You! (Or Something)

Wake N’ Blog is the Sportress of Blogitude’s morning link dump. If you hadn’t noticed, yours truly has been on vacation since last Thursday. Oh, you had not noticed. Huh. Anyhoo, glad to be back, folks. It may take me a bit to get back into the swing of things. But do not fret, before you know it, I’ll be back operating at full speed and be bringing you the same half-assed, sub-par sports bloggery you have grown accustomed to. Send tips, links and welcome back messages to

• Not to be a downer regarding the newsworthiness of the story, but who hasn’t been summering at a posh resort in Russia when a screaming donkey comes fluttering down to the beach? No one?

No-one had the brains to call police. The donkey landed in an atrocious manner: it was dragged several metres along the water, after which the animal was pulled out half-alive onto the shore.” Heeeee-hawwww!!! [Yahoo!/AFP]
