OK, since I went snowboarding this weekend, I have to write something about the Winter X Games. Mostly annoying and about as subjective as a Russian figure skating judge, it nonetheless provides some interesting moments.
Like Shaun White almost decapitating himself on the half-pipe. Yikes. His helmet went flying off like a champagne cork (maybe they don't really help) and his head snapped back like Flex driving by a golf course. That is why I don't try double cab, backward McTwists very often. But he still went on to win.... hmmm.
Also a skier and a snowboarder went to the hospital. And I saw a snowmobile flip during a jump and land on top of a guy. He must have been OK, since he finished the race, and qualified for the finals.
Totally different note - Rogerer is one of the most graceful athletes I've ever seen. He makes winning Major Finals look as effortless as as Kicker leaping a bon-fire.
Also, the NFL pro bowl is on and no one cares.
