Russia's Olympic hockey coach wants you to eat him alive

Martin Rose

Things are going great for Russia. Just super great.

The Russian men's hockey team was eliminated in the quarterfinals on Wednesday and will not be receiving a shiny medal. (Not even a dull one.) How are things going, Russian coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov?

Q: What future, if any, do you see for your own work and for your coaching staff? Because, you know, your predecessor was eaten alive after the Olympics-

A: Well then, eat me alive right now-

Q: No, I mean-

A: Eat me, and I won't be here anymore.

Q: But we have the world championship coming up!

A: Well then, there will be a different coach because I won't exist any more, since you will have eaten me.

Seems fine.
