Source - A South African judge today lifted several of the strict conditions imposed on Oscar Pistorius as part of his bail last month, allowing the former Olympic hero and current accused murderer to return to his home where he shot and killed his girlfriend, consume alcohol and even leave the country under certain conditions. (Namely, by giving the court at least a week notice and providing a detailed itinerary of his travel plans.) That last one has opened the door for the Paralympic track star known as the Blade Runner to return to competition, something that would no doubt gain just a bit of international media attention, all the more so because his return to the track could include one of his sports’ marquee events
Big day for Oscar. Real big day. Finally gets to booze again. And I’m not even kidding that has gotta be the best part of this agreement for him. Like forget about all that letting me leave the country to compete again and move on with my life bullshit. Can I get a fucking drink please? Can I just kick it and relax for a minute and kinda forget about the whole “I murdered my girlfriend” thing? Because honestly that has been weighing REAL heavy on my mind ever since it happened and I’ve been plastered on every TV station and newspaper in the world. Blade Runner’s basically been posted up at the bar for like 6 weeks trying to wave a 20 spot in some bartender’s face and getting shot down non-stop. Must be infuriating.
What an odd agreement though right? Alright while we await trial you can leave your home, travel to competitions and numb all of your pain with sickening amounts of alcohol. So I guess life ain’t all that bad for Pogo Sticks!
