the ones for the summer games in china were awesome. these ones suck. atleast i got to see the "poodle" jaomir jagr again (not that thats a bright point).
oh, i voted for "added to the games".
the snowboarders are balls out, and if skiing deserves to be an event, there is absolutely nothing that says they should be excluded. unfortunately i dont think we will ever see skateboarding or surfing in the summer games- which is even more reason to include snowboarders.
just dont drop curling. atleast one of the olympics should include a beer drinking game.
