Olympics!

I've been digging them lately. Speed skating, luge, downhill, boardercross, it's all good.

It was amazing! His upper body looked completely still as his legs and skis bounced around. Very cool to watch.

The 1500m speed skate on Saturday night was unbelieveable. That made me yell HELL YEA when the 2 Koreans wiped out, and USA got silver & bronze!

No no no!!! I am interested to see what big move White has tonight though. I saw he built some top secret half pipe for training in the middle of nowhere, so it better be something good.

Red Bull built it for him so he could practice in private. Has to take a heli to get to it. http://www.shaunwhite.com/projectx/

I completely ignored the last winter olympics, but am digging them this time around. Short track is cool, so is all the snowboard stuff. The moguls guys are intense! I'm also still a sucker for figure skating.

Running into "cute" young girls on the ski hill, and posting pictures of young boys you think are attractive??????? You better hope some of these kids parents aren't googling you before they send their kids on trips with you, you're gonna get arrested again!!

Only watched (well, looked at) the silly Biathlon because it was on at Outback when we went. For every ok sport, there's a boring/useless or silly nonsensical "sport." Curling?

It's going to to be like 58* there today. Doesn't a Winter Olympiad need snow or something?

meh.
