Snowboarding is cool. Too bad it requires snow!

Um, no. Not after my recent trip out on the ice, which ended in tragedy.

Oh, lol! I'm not offended! Not at all. Seriously. But I did learn after our recent snow/ice escapade that I'm a warm weather gal. Through & through!

Ughhh. If it isn't on skis, skates or runners it isn't an Olympic sport. And that stuff with the bumps is questionable.

What about curling? I also doubt the K-3 would do well at curling.

OK - that's been around a while, but you can have it. AFAIC hockey isn't an Olympic sport any more either.

Reading that made my knees hurt. These new athletes are something else.
I've been up to 72 on skis. Great times!

If skiing was easy they would call it snowboarding.

All of the winter stuff is alright. I even enjoy watching the snowboarding, although it is not something for me. Skis are way cooler.

Curling is definitely not for Hocir.

You must mean the NHL winter break in Sochi. I'm talking about the Olympics.

Amateurs, honor, competition without politics, not keeping medal counts by country and inventing new 'sports' that your country already dominates like snowboarding (Slope Style?? WTH is that??) and Freestyle Skiing.
