Winter Olympics


I'm not a big fan, but have to say I have just watched the mens half-pipe, which for all of us completely out of it bods, is hurling yourself off what looks like the top of a ski jump on a snowboard, then whirling up and down a half snow tunnel doing unbelievable gymnastics in mid air. I do try to relax and enjoy, but my heart is in my mouth half the time. But the commentary is hysterical, apart from being a different language (not foreign, but definitely youth) some of the quips really make you smile: he really gave us the ambassadors favourite chocolate there, another was, really putting sprinkles on his cereal. Its another world isn't it!!:heh hee: The final is tomorrow if anyone is brave enough to watch :eeek:

I need to catch up with Iplayer as so busy as OH, daughter and grandson are in Canada skiing and I have ours and daughters dog (a wild spaniel) and with my knee my two get a short walk up the road but the spaniel pulls and I cant do it. My son used to snowboard but dislocated his shoulder once too often and needed an operation and its once only. He won the British universities snowboarding twice in its early days. OH used to board when the snow was very deep but since the advent of modern skis deep snow is no problem just great fun.

Don't find the half-pipe snowboarding interesting, but love the X cross :eeek:
