If you are looking to laugh in the Olympics, you had to see this. Make sure to read all the way to the bottom, or you will miss it.
In the Olympic Bronze medal match for taekwondo, Angel Valodia Matos of Cuba, the 2000 Olympic Welterweight Champion, took too much time for an injury time-out and was disqualified from his match.
We are guessing he did not like being disqualified, because his response was to kick the referee in the head. Honestly, he kicked the referee…in the head!!! We figure if he kept going in the match, he may have tried to bite off his opponent’s ear, as in this famous Mike Tyson/Evander Holyfield matchup.
Angel was completely disqualified from the games. Really? Why? Jim Lampley would tell us.
NBC announcer Jim Lampley had us in hysterics. The funniest quote from the Olympics that we can remember!!! Jim said, “Matos was disqualified because… after all, it is the first rule of taekwondo, you cannot kick the referee in the head”.
Get Lampley on “Last Comic Standing”. He had us laughing harder after this comment than we did the entire last two seasons of Last Comic!!
