Circle of Jerks: Jer on Dunn

We gather prior to the climax of the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Three Olmypic-level bloggers reach out to each other.

We used to do this thing where the three writers on this site would ask each other questions. We haven't done it in a while, so what better way to give the appearance of fresh content on Battle of California than to bring back a tired gimmick?

Only this time, it's Olympic themed.

I got stuck asking Dunn questions again, and it was hard to time the 27 minutes of any given day that Dunn is both awake and sober, but eventually I figured it out. And here we go...

Assuming you're rooting for the US Olympic team, you're forced to select one Anaheim player (regardless of nationality) to represent America. Who do you pick, why, and where does he fall in the current Team USA lineup?

Teemu Selanne is basically an American at this point. He's also the only guy on the Ducks I tolerate because he's old and handsome. He's a likable enough guy to have me look past the fact he enjoys playing for Anaheim, and likability is something Team USA really lacks. He can replace Cam Fowler, even though he is a defenseman, because he won't be playing anyways.

The league continues to use future NHL Olympic participation as a bargaining chip against the Players' Association. What are your thoughts on the debate, and what do you see happening at the next Winter Olympics?

The first chance the owners get, they will be stopping the NHL break for the Olympics. Because $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. I like seeing the NHLers go over, though I wouldn't be devastated if they stopped playing. I'd be more annoyed at the owners for winning another battle just so they get richer. If the Olympics have hockey featuring only college players and other non-pros I'd actually be okay with though, since it would be cool to see up and coming young players. Maybe the American team wouldn't even be full of assholes for a change. Or at least assholes we really know of yet.

Aside from the hockey, are you going to watch any of this bullshit?

I've been watching it live for a while. I haven't slept in five days and have been taking these great pills to stay awake, but I can tell you everything you want to know about cross-country skiing. Oh god, I have a problem. Er, well, another one.

Let's not get him help just yet, folks, let's see where this goes.
