There are some crazy ass sports in the winter Olympics. This weekend, I stared open-mouthed at the tv as guys on skis stopped to shoot a target. What the hell kind of sport is that? I don't care how cute those well-muscled guys look in tights, that's just downright strange.
The cold must lead to boredom. It's the only explanation for some of these strange, wacky sports. Someone sitting around in the Canadian snow, bored to death with hockey ( although I can't imagine that even being possible - hockey's a real sport with a point - get the puck in the net!) and decides that they should get on a really small sled and steer with their heads - thus we have the sport known as skeleton. And it's hard to believe that a fast, dangerous sport played by very fit men in tight clothes could be so boring.
Imagine if you actually had to stand out in the cold and watch these sports while your froze your assets off instead of in your nice warm house with the heat on? At least with curling (another sport!? I don't understand) you can stay inside a rink and drink beer. After awhile you don't really care which side is winning - even if you could figure out the rules.
