GIF: Russian president Vladimir Putin struggles to put on his helmet
Russian president Vladimir Putin plays a lot of hockey but he still doesn't quite have the 'putting on your helmet' part down pat.
Hockey is a pretty big deal in Russia. The people love it, they have a proud history with the game going back through the years of the Soviet Union. That's why there is going to be a lot of pressure on the Russian team to win gold in Sochi next month.
Perhaps no fan is bigger than President Vladimir Putin, who not only loves to watch hockey but has also been known to play from time to time.
That's all a fancy way of saying that he should know how to put on a hockey helmet. Heck, even somebody who has never played hockey before in your life you should know how to properly put on a helmet.
Apparently this is vexing to Putin.
Now I don't know a lick of Russian but it's pretty evident that when he realized what the problem was, Putin cursed himself. See, even presidents of massive countries with weapons of mass destruction at his disposal are like you and I. Or not.
And for the record, I wouldn't want to be the camera operator who filmed this. I hear Siberia is not very nice this time of year.
