    Love the Winter Olympics. I really enjoyed watching the half pipe snowboarding the last two days. I wish I could have seen the snowboarder cross and other downhill events. I'm not a big ice skating watcher, but it's been good too.

      I enjoyed watching both men and womens' snowboarding!

      Shaun White wins US its 100th Winter Olympics gold with epic halfpipe performance


      By Nicole Darrah | Fox News

      Snowboarding legend Shaun White made Olympic history Wednesday when he won the U.S. its 100th gold medal in the history of the Winter Games.

      Chloe Kim dominates in snowboard halfpipe to win Olympic gold


      https://www.nbcolympics.com/news/chl...-olympic-debut

      The expectations placed upon Chloe Kim could not have been any higher entering the PyeongChang Olympics. But the 17-year-old delivered on the biggest stage, earning her first Olympic gold medal in women's snowboard halfpipe on Tuesday morning in South Korea.
      Kim set the bar extremely high on her first run, landing a backside air, frontside 1080, cab 720, frontside 900, McTwist and frontside inverted 720.
      That run scored her a 93.75 and gave her a huge lead over the rest of the field.

            I'm glad I caught Shaun White's performance, total epic win. I love watching masters of their craft at work.
            My friend John Morris won gold at mixed doubles curling yesterday. Not as cool IMO as a real olympic sport () but happy nonetheless, as I work with the dude.

                  Kim Jong Un Look-Alike Gets Booted From Olympics, Says Face Is ‘Too Political’

                  A dead ringer for North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un caused mischief during a historic ice hockey game at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, on Wednesday.

                  As the unified Korean women’s team took to the ice for its game against Japan, a man who identified himself only as Howard walked in front of the North Korean cheer squad and waved at the crowd.

                    They probably just saved him from being assassinated by someone or something.

                          I'm expecting a new delivery of salty British paper articles anyday now
                          Also, short track and speed skating are technically two different disciplines. You really had me looking for British speed skaters after the first couple of salty whatsapp messages, lol. Maybe that ought to be made clearer in the naming of the events.
