I’m just checking in for a second time, only to realize two big things: slopestyle is now the official “it” sport, no thanks to the Americans who took over the contest. Go Team USA!!
Also, it’s kind of a sad day for Russia, as the big champion Yegevny Pleschenko was forced to pull out due to a debilitating back injury. It’s sad for him, to have come so far, then lose your career to a bad back. Hopefully, the rest of the team will pick up the slack.
And Shaun White didn’t capture the gold, which is sad. History is proving elusive, defying any and all attempts by our team to catch it. We can’t give up just yet.
Meanwhile, I’m banking on the women to pull something off in the ski jump. I don’t know who’s going to win, but I hope it’s someone from Team USA.
Let’s go, Team USA!!!
