    X Games

    Anyone a fan of the X Games? I love watching every winter. A skier took a hard fall about 10 minutes ago.

    I like the skiing and snowboarding, but the snowmobiling is dumb.

    Overall, I much prefer the Winter Olympics, but you'll have that :)

    The Winter Olympics are legit too. The things these guys do are insane. True athletes.

    Re: X Games

    I actually went to them in person last year, and it was a great time. Everything is set up pretty close so you can see a lot of different things. While the snowmobiling may not be that impressive on TV, it was pretty cool in person. We were halfway up the pipe for the women's superpipe finals, and evidently we were on ESPN a few times.

    Also, it's free, which is awesome. However, because there are a ton of kids (and probably because everyone's walking on ice/snow), no booze allowed. Both of those things surprised me, but it works. We took a bus into Aspen for some drinks in the middle of the day.

    Gretchen Bleiler is amazingly hot also. That is all.

    That's awesome. I didn't know it was free. I'm a fan of Jamie Anderson. Maybe I'll be able to go sometime.

    Re: X Games

    Is it wrong if my favorite event is the disabled ski cross?

    I can't look away, especially the last mega jump. If I had to guess, I'd say they're all about 30% successfully at running the whole course.

    I actually like the mono ski event too. Tonight the soldier who lost his legs overseas got wiped out by another skier early on in the race. He was super mad about it.
