    In the future, I see these events on either artificial surface, or refrigerated (controllable) surfaces.
    I don't particularly like that prediction, but when the Winter Olympics are in Dubai.....
    Yeah, why not. They do it for luge and bob, skating, curling. Ski jump in runs are artificial now (apparently).

    i think it's all boring as hell but the ladies just don't have the lower body strength to do some of the things the men do. although shaun white is about as skinny as you get. i enjoyed bordercross (though not as an olympic sport) and as noted i would enjoy the hell of watching snowboarders negotiate these icy water injected downhill courses.

    Spook, Banked Slalom? Man, I love watching those Baker etc. videos.

    Boardercross is way too MEGA EXTREME.

    Fun listening to the Doc call the USA/CAN women's hockey game.

    Goddammit - the Canucks just scored on a breakaway.

    Those two teams are so far above everyone else it is crazy. And there is no love lost between them that's for sure. I didn't watch the game but I was following the play-by-play on the Sochi website. Sounds like the third period was crazy.

    Holy , I think I would actually pay a reasonable rate to watch that!

    As it is, Sandra Bezic is annoying as shit.
    Scott Hamilton and that other dude who is their 3rd wheel need to tell her STFU and take over.

    I think the real difference is that there are just substantially fewer girls in those sports. Take a look at figure skating where girls clearly participate more than guys and the difference between the sexes is much less. The girls are just a hair behind the guys in what jumps they can do and there are some things the girls are arguably better at due to better flexibility. I think the girls will narrow the gap in halfpipe and slopestyle as the sports mature.

    Woo, Erin Hamlin bringing home 'merica's first ever Olympic medal (a bronze) in luge! The vast metropolis of Remsen, NY must be partying it up right now (likely at a vfw or volunteer fd building)!

    Did anyone else watch it? God damn the Germans are good.

    The shared gold is amazing in its own right. CBC just showed an overlap run of the winning runs that was awesome to watch.

    Sweden is on am entirely different level than the Czechs right now. They're going to be tough to beat

    edit...the Czechs pulled their heads out of their asses and ended up out shooting the Swedes, pretty fun game to watch!
