Here’s an Olympics Games story out of Vancouver that not many people have heard.*
Jurji Fusek and his friend Andre Kempny traveled together to Canada to watch the Olympic games. The fact that Andre was from the Czech Republic and Jurji was Austrian had never been a problem in their ten year friendship, but at the Winter Games all their national pride came bubbling to the surface. No one knows exactly what started their argument, but everyone in the bar agrees that Jurji let out a yell, jumped from his seat and pulled Andre from his own chair.
Jurji shook Andre like a doll. Andre threw a right cross and sent Jurgi sprawling across a table. Jurgi grabbed a shot glass and hurdled it at Andre, who ducked. The glass shattered the mirror behind the bar. The two men were shouting curses in their own native tongues and German as well. Andre grabbed a chair and sung it at Jurgi.
Jurgi grabbed the chair and jerked Andre toward him. Andre took a wild swing and clipped Jurgi upside the head. The two of them fell onto the chair and it splintered beneath them. Jurgi gained his feet first and grabbed Andre, bouncing him off the wall twice before tossing him out the door and into the street.
Silence filled the bar. Every eye in the place was on Yurgi. The bartender was the first to speak. “Some one is going to have to pay for this,” he said, motioning toward the broken furniture and scattered glass.
“But of course,” Jurgi said. He reached into his pocket and pulled out his wallet. “You will take bank draft, yes?”
“No,” the bartender said. “I have proof your credit is no good.”
“What proof?” Jurgi yelled.
The bartender pointed toward the door and answered, “I saw that Czech you just bounced!”
