HA HA HA HA

Then you can only talk in your wolverine/batman voice and it has to be about inane things. "I want hot chocolate." "The chili makes me fart."

Stuff that makes Mom's slowly pull their children away from you.


Or "Look kid, you and I are going to be best friends."

I grew up with more of a John Wayne role model.

That has to be one of the least likely sentences ever constructed in the English language.

This would be effective too: http://randommization.com/2011/03/19/du ... -forehead/

Dude doesn't really look like a skier though.

I'd have to the meow game, all the time, if I had a head like that.

Oh CHRIST, how did I let this slip? I could have used this today multiple times. "Going alone on the chair, meow?" "Mind if I tag along, meow?" "Hey buddy, I'm gonna join you on this one, meow."

Yeah man I got my quadrennial snowboarding viewing session in the other night and I was glad I did! Clutch is exactly what that was. I wonder how the boarder is doing who crashed out. The Japanese rider who put up a score to one-up Shaun White late in the game was fun to watch also. And Scotty James too. I don't think I could name another half pipe rider. Besides Chloe Kim.

If you have ever seen a full scale superpipe or been in one, they are extremely intimidating (from my view). Those guys flying 17 feet off the lip repeatedly is insane. I'm glad we get to see it. Mad skills.

Shifting Olympic gears: The DH course is a bit of a yawner but a good one for Mikaela Shiffrin to giver a go. I think LV will take it based on the beef power the course requires for winning. Most of the mens downhillers looked like they train their beer gut to excess, but that's probably not literally true. I wanted to tele the course but that would be a death wish for me.

Where in the heck are all the ski fans? The mens dh is the marquee Olympic event and I think we had more ski fans at the kids Alpine regionals Monday in Michigan.
Call it Nordic Freeride

They were probably at women figure skating. Where else can you get to see a double flying camel toe :D ?
