    Maybe somebody understands snowboarding better than I(At least I sure hope so!), but did anybody catch this at the Olympics?
    I did not think she did and must be stupid to believe her story, based on the rest of the views. It did not seem like much of a waggle for someone who knows half-pipe also.

    Cheers,

    I believe that it's time to contact a mod to fix it for you, then. If you really mind enough, that is. However, I haven't been watching the olympics, so I don't know. If she did, it'll probably get caught by someone and I'll see a clip of it online some time. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Another high priced marketing scheme gone wrong. I'm not sad when people with the big money endorsement deals crash. Not to get hurt or anything, but to let someone else win instead. Maybe Visa told her to attempt whatever it was she crashed on because it would make for a more striking ad. Too bad.

    On a somewhat related subject, what does someone do to become a competitive sled rider? Millions of kids ride sleds down hills and I don't understand how a few get selected to go to Olympic training centers and so on.

    What's to understand? It's like skiing, only instead of two boards tide to your feat, you have one. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Seriously, it looked to me like she tried to hot dog and ended up losing the gold. All she had to do was ride to the line and she tried to show off instead. It cost her.

    I saw it. I think it was just one of those moments where "it seemed like a good idea at the time." Not like she did a flip or anything and that's probably a little trick she's done a million times and nailed the landing. But in a race, all you need to do is cross the finish line. I feel bad for her...one instant of poor judgement cost her the gold. But hey, she got the silver and she's beautiful so she'll make lots o' money.

    I like the Flying Tomato...he's a cutie pie. He's so full of grins and seems so genuinely enthusiastic.

    I feel bad for her too PAK. But like one of the announcers said, "she won't be remembered for winning a Silver, but for losing a Gold." That is a big burden for anyone to bear.
