Pavers at the Winter Olympics?

Has anyone noticed the newly installed pavers at the Winter Olympics this year?

I was wondering if Paver Pete installed them, being he has installed pavers in like 37 countries and 52 states.

I was watching a report on Sochi the other day an they were talking about the poor craftsmanship on all the work. They showed a paver install that had horrible cuts and just really bad overall. I will looks for pics of it.

Dude, Didn't you hear?

Not only did Paver Pete install ALL of the pavers in Sochi by himself, but the Olympic Committee was so impressed with his artisan and craftsmanship that they declared paver laying a new Summer Olympics event right on the spot!!!!

Paver Pete is going to bring home the gold in 2016!!!! He is re-doing all of the Favelas in Allegro!!!!!!

Rio says "Obrigado" Paver Pete!!!!!!!!!!

Come on people...

Let's show a little respect for the man who "invented" laying pavers...

All of those cobblestone streets that you see in Europe and in the North East U.S.....

They are FAKE!!!!!!
