    I have gone off a few prepared jumps, for skiers, years ago. The best I have managed is a 360 helicopter - no flips for me. I stick to the flat blues and blacks and avoid the moguls at this point. I am just not in good enough shape anymore.
    Eh, I wasn't a big trickster either. Something about having that blazing red patrol jacket on makes one want to be just a tad more conservative so as not to embarrass oneself. LOL One of the better spills I took was in the terrain park, with the jacket on, right under one of the main lifts. I got shouts of scores from the lift folks, and bonus points for busting my ass in a ski patrol jacket. I rode out of the park with my head hung in shame. Would have been a great jump... if I'd landed on my board instead of my head. ROFL

    And I HATE moguls. The only time I went down moguls was to open/close a slope or drag someone off of it. Try going down a black diamond mogul hill on snowboard, and pulling a sled behind you with a 250 lb person in it. Fun, fun. LOL

    Not sure where you live, but we have like 400 channels to choose from...not counting the porn channels. So...like...change...the...channel maybe?

    I saw that you like hockey and not figure skating...but my guess is they put the figure skating on because you are not their majority viewing audience. They are pretty smart when it comes to that whole marketing thing...

    I am so tired of this cold dark winter that I can't bring myself to watch. I'm usually a total Olympics freak. I just want to see people swimming in the hot sun.

    Brutal! LOL!

    That would be tricky. That could easily be me - 240 lbs - and I would probably injure myself on a black diamond mogul run too!

    I used to love moguls. Double black-diamonds for me!! Of all the resorts I have been too (Mt Snow, Killington, Snowshoe, Snowmass/Aspen, Steamboat, Breckenridge, Vail, Chamonie, Courmayeur, Innsbruck, St Moritz, Zermatt, Cortina d'Ampezzo and now Parc City) the absolute best for hardcore skiing was A-Basin. 75% black diamond/double black-diamond. My legs were killing me at the end of that trip!

    The best all around resort was Cortina d'Ampezzo!!

    They have covered hockey every single freaking day! Didn't you see last Sunday's match, mens' USA vs. Canada? We kicked their butts! We were supposed to lose. Women lost gold to the Canadians last night, bummer.

    Honestly, check your listings, because is has been on daily.

    EDIT: The semi finals in mens' hockey is up next. We might get a rematch with Canada.

    Your poll assumes someone has watched the Olympics at all.

    I haven't.

    Unless BU is playing I will watch any Olympic event. Certain events may not have my full attention, but I will at least have them on in the background to listen to.

    Yeah, I missed that mens' USA vs Canada game as I was travelling long distance. I caught the end of the Women's match. Too bad.

    I travelled again today so I missed both games. Did Canada win?

    Yeah they did 3-2, but they were winning 3-0 I believe going into the 3rd period.
