    another 17 yr old wins gold.. Chloe Kim of the US wins the snowboard half pipe with a near perfect score on her last run....

    she was already leading the comp and was assured gold.. but still went better on her last run... :cool:

    Certain uncertainty
    It would be a lot easier for them to go down the hill if they avoided those ramps and didn't twirl and flip hardee-har-har

    I am staying up very late, for here and for me, to finish watching the Men’s S Combined. My wife asked “are you alright?” from the bedroom a few minutes ago, so I promised to return to normal until the Men’s Downhill happens Wednesday night.

    I was never much other than a guy who would haphazardly tackle about any hill with my mediocre skis and lack of talent, but watching these guys takes me back to marveling at their skill 50 years ago.

    To me one of the funniest things about this Winter Olympics is they keep talking about how cold it is. Really? It is the Winter Olympics. You could move it to the summer but then the lack of snow and ice would be a problem. I just think it is funny.

    Oh, watching Chloe Kim was great and it was obvious she was better than anyone else competing even to my untrained eyes.

    My favorite events are the Alpine Events.

    I like the alpine skiing stuff. grew up in Colorado; skiing was part of it from an early age.

    that's what I like to watch. These are pretty good skiers. I like to watch. All the rest of it is kinda too fluffy or too boring; YMMV.

    I agree, the sensible solution to getting back down off that doggone hill would be a snow cat with a heater. Sheesh, people never see the whole problem.

    That'd be ski jumping...... they cut it down to one big ramp and a straight downhill run....:D

    now those guys hardly even move a muscle to compete......;)

    Curling. Isn't this basically just horseshoe pitching? Which is fine. I enjoy participating in horseshoe pitching myself, and curling looks like fun too. But...Olympic sport? There must be some historical aspect I'm not aware of.

    For Norway, it's all about the uniforms.

    Diehard that I am, I watched Men’s Downhill, then pairs skating to get to Women’s Super G, and enjoyed every bit of it until my wife remarked that she didn’t like a skater because of her skimpy undergarment. I didn’t even notice it until she pointed it (figuratively) out.

    I may have to cash in my man card.
