    This men's half pipe competition is off the hook.

    It just ain’t right what they do, it does not seem possible for a human being to do such things. I bet the genius who came up with this stuff has some serious dain bramage.

    It is entertaining as hell, but something I would never even contemplate attempting.

    That was some show! Very entertaining. It's like a mix of diving, trampolining, gymnastics and oh yeah, snowboarding!

    I got home from a Board of Directors meeting just about the time that one half-pipe snow boarder clipped the edge and crashed. The response time from the emergency personnel was impressive. In almost seconds, they had a backboard and some sort of evacuation sled there.

    Our boy from Oregon just missed the podium. Still, 4th in the Olympics is impressive!

    The US curling team needs to start doping.

    I will never understand why a curler would think doping would in anyway help?

    And on an Olympic note, planning on being in Park City Utah this friday. They have Olympic park there and offer runs down the bobsled track, would be cool as hell but can't convince myself its worth $175.

    One of the few venues not to turn into a complete shithole following the Olympics.
