Testing…testing…woof woof woof. So I’ve been remiss on my woof coverage at the Vancouver Olympics, but here’s one hottie we won’t see: TJ Lanning.

Sadly he got in a terrible crash during training, dislocating his knee and fracturing his neck vertebrae, and was not able to join the U.S. team efforts in Vancouver. He’s the guy in the photo staring a cat down in this gallery of alpine hotties, and also shown here on the right with a fine ‘stache.

And I missed most of Men’s Curling because I don’t have a DVRecorder so I’m sad, but Joe.My.God already mentioned scruffy Canadian curling hotness John Morris who after his victory in Vancouver is now one of Canada’s most sought-after bachelors.

But at least I caught the opening ceremony. Some people thought it was weird but I liked it, especially the whales projected on the floor. k.d. lang was magnetic, but you won’t find her cover of ‘Halelujah’ on the tracks available from the event on iTunes. But the ‘Sounds of Vancouver 2010: Opening Ceremony Commemorative Album‘ does include my favorite track from the ceremony, an ethereal reimagining of Joni Mitchell’s ‘Both Sides Now’ that is currently on heavy rotation on my iPod.

So what are your bets on the closing ceremony performances? I think Celine is a given, but I am hoping for a homage to Vancouver’s sci-fi contribution to the world. Would it be too much to ask if Starbuck showed up in a Viper ship, or the opening performers arrived through a Stargate?

While not exactly ‘woofy’, I thought Germany’s Daniel Wende was a handsome lad, shown here with his skate partner Maylin Hausch:

Scruff favorite Bode Miller apparently has not shaved since arriving in Vancouver, but I wasn’t able to find much close-up photographic proof of this progress.

Darth Jersey pointed out snowboarding’s Seth Wescott who gets the 2010 Gold Medal for Woof from me:

In other beardy news, here’s a link to ‘The Sound and the Furry’ – a gallery of bearded rockers.

From the sitcom “Accidentally on Purpose” which seems to be some kinda
sitcom about hot guys with beards, but I’m not complaining.

Oh, and there is a coyote in Central Park and a dragon in Indonesia.

    Holy fucking shit. Those are the most amazing eyes I’ve ever seen. Maybe I should start watching the boringlympics just for him.
