Default Re: Winter Olympics - one guy dead already

i noticed the coverage of the opening ceremonies immediately spent quite a bit of time covering this tragic event.

they didnt pause to state that this new sledding facility is known as the fastest in the world, and also known as the most dangerous.

for a while there, i couldnt tell if they were reporting on the young mans death or promoting the event in days to come.

regardless, i am certain, this years bobsledding will receive the highest ratings ever.

my worse half said she'd bow out of the games after watching that. i told her i would be the first in line saying "its my turn".

despite the crash, that shit looks fun.

i love the luge (although curling is probaly a bit easier and more up my alley).

mad respect to any olympian who is willing to risk their life or to compete while drunk.
