Desus And Mero Keep It Real About What They Think These Winter Olympic Sports Should Actually Be Called

With a total of 15 sports in the Winter Olympics this year, it can become quite difficult to keep track of which sport is which, especially if you’re not a Winter Olympics expert. However, TV hosts Desus and Mero discovered a way of making these sports easier to remember.

Recently on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Desus and Mero went through a list of nine different Winter Olympic Sports and gave each one a new title. Here’s what this comedic duo came up with:

They renamed Cross-Country Skiing to:

Their face expressions really show you how they feel about this sport.

The sport Curling became:

But shouldn’t every Winter Olympic sport be renamed this way?

As for the Luge, Desus and Mero went with the new name of:

Nothing more, nothing less. Just two friends who are *really* comfortable with each other.

Bobsledding was renamed as:

If you’ve never seen the movie, then you might not understand the meaning behind this name.

Instead of calling this Snowboarding, they decided to go with:

So if you’re an athlete ballin’ on a budget, this is the perfect Winter Olympic sport for you.

Since they weren’t impressed with the sport Nordic Combined, they decided to rename it as:

Seriously. Who has ever heard of Nordic Combined outside of the Winter Olympics.

They decided to give Ski Jumping the new name of:

“Nooooope” is the exact response I would give if someone asked me if I wanted to go Ski Jumping.

And as for the ninth and final sport, they decided to change the name of Ice Hockey to…
