For the duration… I am an Olympics junkie and especially the winter Olympics.
Both of these were taken while watching the snowboard time trials. I don’t see how those kids stay on their feet. It really gets hairy when they start racing in the heats after the time trials. There will be 4 racers on the course at a time and it’s kinda like a cross between snowboarding and freestyle wrestling. There are bumps and falls and ducking under and jumping over downed boarders and the jumps and whoever is standing at the end of the run, the top two I think, will advance to the next race. I enjoy these even more than the tricks and jumps of the half-pipe because of the skill needed to navigate the downhill drops and avoid the other boarders and outthink all the others to the gold.
So while I probably won’t be posting much for a bit… you’ll know where I am. Watching every event I can on the winter sports…
Except for this evening. I’m going to Norman to watch the OU Women’s basketball team play top ranked Connecticut women. The ticket was one of my birthday presents and the weather is cooperating but after the game I will be watching the re-runs of whatever I missed while at the game.
