Huge style points for that move. As he was going up I kept waiting for a spin or method, then he hit the apex and kept the grab, my brain caught up and I thought to myself "F#$% he's landing that monster fakie!"
Women's Slalom starts at 5:15 tonight. Looking forward to Shiffrin's runs.
The Olympics are great. But if you don't DVR them, your head will explode. They fill them with so much BS and commercials, it's off the chart. And Mike Tirico is a jackass. Got dumped from ESPN for being too touchy feely with the ladies, and now he's the prime time guy on NBC? WTF?
@Jojo What's wrong with Luge? Takes some serious guts. Did you see the crash by the USA women's Luger? She walked away. But it was scary to watch.
YES, it would be so hard to watch without DVR, so much stuff i don’t care about besides the commercials. And then it gets confusing about the repeats. I just LOVE the halfpipe! All the snowboarding is fun. And i love the ski jumps too!
This is going to make me sound really bad but i only watch the luge by fast forwarding and I’m only looking to see if there is a crash but i haven’t seen the womens’ luge yet i need to catch up on my DVR. I am amazed people are willing to do such a thing. But at least something is at risk, unlike curling, which i don’t get at all. Where’s the athleticism and dare?
This cartoon was in my newspaper yesterday. Cracked me up. Pretty much what i did all day yesterday watching. Today i did get out for a run and had stuff to do so i just started watching before i have to go bowling! (Our league starts today.) HEY, how come bowling isn’t in the Olympics? If curling is allowed, so should bowling.
I really think the current political climate might explain why I'm watching the Olympics again. It feels really, really good to take pride in my country, and the show of global goodwill is refreshing amid constant news of nuclear proliferation and international cyber crime.
