    yeah, watched the snowboarding a bit. Red kicked ass, shaun still has it, hoping to catch the finals for him tonight. casually had some skating on in the bg while doing some work.... speed and figure- doesn't really interest me too much but good stuff happening i guess.

    i find it quite odd that the guys are getting SO much higher air on the pipe. Like, the girls were gettign 5m and the guys were almost 9 a few hits. why? it's not really 'msucle' to get air.... it's just speed

    testosterone, and lack of fear?
    I saw that little girl that banged out gold. Most of the girls were slipping off some speed before they dove into the pipe.
    That 17 year old girl gave absolutely zero fucks and scrubbed no speed. Just bombed straight into it, and the air she got from the speed was a visible difference.
    Assume more mass plus same hill = more velocity for a bigger guy? plus no speed scrubbing

    maybe. chole kim didn't impress me either honestly. im' suprised it was a gold run.

    like, if she did that in the guys comp, she would have scored like a 45

    I didn't watch any of the guys runs, so after your post I had to go check them out.

    SPOT ON B.

    For comparison.

    I've caught it a few times. Watched Men's halfpipe semis, then sought out White's Gold Medal run after everyone said how insane it was. They were right. Holy hell. He went pro at like 7, so its somewhat to be expected.

    So men's curling was on tv lastnight.
    I've discovered there is a direct correlation between my interest in watching curling, and the amount of hot women involved in said curling.
    So it goes.

    I think curling is a drinking game that somehow made the Olympics. That being said, I'm interested in playing.

    Not sure this guy's time is accurate, but worth a laugh

    Favourite Olympic moment so far: Canadian curler Rachel Homan's husband double-fisting his third and fourth beers while watching his wife compete against Japan. It's 9am in Korea. Not all heroes wear capes. #PyeongChang2018[​IMG]
