Re: Olympic Thread

Ummm.....MC, I guess I’m sorry I infringed on the intent of your Olympics thread by discussing something relevant to the Olympics.  That last post of yours is so full of twisted shit I’m just going to send rainbow unicorns and love your way!  Happy happy, joy joy!  Here, take a cookie.....

White crushed that last run.  He is amazing.  I'm wanting to see that XC video. Find it, Camp!


As for the tangent this thread has taken, perhaps, if White had just handled the initial question better, like, "I have no comment about that, it was handled legally between the parties' lawyers", he would be in a better position now.  Personally, I don't have any issue with him "not using the moment" etc.  He's a snowboarder.  Just because one doesn't espouse a particular cause doesn't make them an asshole, in my book.  Some people are more motivated by causes than others.  If he doesn't want to step up, and be held accountable to be that old fashioned, Wheaties box "American Olympic Hero", so be it.  IMHO, it doesn't make him a bad person.

Yes gorgo is on. He's the complete package as his work has social relevance too.

Shooting guns makes XC skiing way more fing interesting

Short track relay blew my mind.  That was some cool ass TV
