Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, get on up ..... It's Bobsled Time! Coooooooool Runnings! Happy Winter Olympics everyone! We celebrated by watching this epic underdog film from 1993. Based on true events - there was a real Jamaican bobsled team that slid their way to the Calgary Olympics in 1988. Starring John Candy and some no name but incredibly charismatic faux Jamaicans actors, this movie taught us that it's not always about winning and that even if you've never seen snow or ice or even a bobsled before, that shouldn't stop you from achieving your Winter Olympic dreams! We'll chat about all the scary sled events at the Winter Olympics, induct Junior into the Sweetie Club, and try to come to a consensus of why white dudes were running around in the mid 90s with Rastafarian caps with fake dreads!
