Okay, I pushed it through just because I do things like that.

So, what sports are worth talking about right now? Curling?

That new snowboarding Olympic sport seems pretty cool.  If they let each player use clubs and chains it would be even better.

Snowboard Cross is, indeed, interesting.

And I was shocked at how fun I found curling during the Olympics.

That's about all I have to add.

The curling I watched ruled. It was also obvious they edited out a bunch of stuff because they started a new frame or whatever and suddenly there were a bunch of rocks out there. That ruled, too. Live curling doesn't rule I imagine.

Is snowboard cross the one where the girl did a trick for no real reason and cost herself a gold medal? If so, that's cool too, because snowboarders are baked.

We watched the Canada-NZ game on Sunday, and it seemed like they may have edited that slightly.  They showed all the rocks being thrown (slid?) but it seemed like there was a lot less standing around talking in between.  Maybe they really did talk less because the game was out of hand so early, but it certainly seemed to move right along, like a CFL game, rather than dragging on like baseball.

I hate my life and I want to die.

The US-Switzerland match seemed pretty heavily edited, but I'm no curling expert. The US would own them and then on to a new frame and already there were like three Swiss rocks out there blocking ineptly the coming US ownage. Probably edited for US consumption.

Snowboardcross was fun, curling was fun, watching Bode fail was fun.  Hockey made me wish NHL hockey still existed.

That was funny, and I'm glad she fell.

And Bode SUX!

I didn't say it wasn't his responsibility, but I it's sad when someone does things that appear to be self sabotage.  *shrugs*

Also, the Bucks are going to get rid of Griese in favor of Simms...horrible call imho.

And an even worse quarterback call Breeze is being let go by the Chargers...wtf are they thinking.

Perhaps he looked at the millions he already had and realised there was a choice: a) sign up for more exhausting sports stuff and yet more millions or b) have the butler bring him a big fat spliff.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I know which way I'd go.

I am really getting caught up in the Olympics. I love how the Canadian female hockey team mopped up the floor with the competition. Quite frankly I would pay money to see them go up against our male "all star" hockey team. Here are a bunch of babes kicking butt while their overpaid, super star, cry baby, millionaire counterparts are falling apart. Makes a person wonder!

OK, sports.

Yesterday I took the day off and rode Hollenbeck Canyon. Did about 1400ft. of vertical climbing. The new wheels are extremely pimp, I can feel a significant difference in the way the bike handles. Much tighter, more stable, more responsive.

My riding buddy is pretty hardcore, so again, I really worked. Nothing like 40 minutes of straight climbing, pegged to the limit of my aerobic endurance, trying to keep the pace without going anaerobic and stalling. It demands a lot of mental toughness, because I have to keep a 'line' between/around all sorts of ruts, rocks and bumps, while keeping my weight in just the right place. Lean forward too far, lose traction; lean back too far, pop the front wheel up and lose momentum. If I use less than a fluid, circular stroke on the pedals, the lurch in momentum and weight is enough to blow it. It's definitely an endurance sport, but it has enough technique - especially on San Diego terrain - that it demands agility and balance. I'm a big clumsy lunk, so it's good for me.

The payoff for the punishing climb is the view. Man, some of the vistas I see are gorgeous. There's a lot of back country that goes relatively unvisited by hikers or other riders; the trails we've found often have plenty of ground cover growing across them. It's mostly just a game of connect the dots; you have to have the courage to take on some trails that may have steep climbs that end in dead-ends, but occasionally you get lucky.

I like bikes.

I'm as big a fan of our women's team as anyone, but come on.  That would be a slaughter.  The best female player in the world played in a tier 2 mens league in Europe and was relegated to being a third-line checker.  There is a huge discrepency between men and women, and likely always will be.  And as much as I think the men's team isn't playing well, they're still playing well enough to beat the crap out of inferior teams like Italy and Germany.

Now, the Canadian women versus the Italian men might be a game.

I take the gondolas up when I bike at Mammoth.  Also, we take two cars and shuttle when biking down Noble Canyon, though I have biked up Noble once (...ONCE!).  

I don't buy into the whole "always earn your ride down" bullshit, though I can outclimb the vast majority of amateur mountain bikers.  I mean, yeah, if you can do the climb in less than an hour, don't be super lazy about it, but there are a lot of great downhill runs where doing the uphill first is either ridiculous (took about 2 1/2 hours to climb Noble, all sustained uphill, no flats) or just flat out impossible (getting to the very top of Mammoth without getting off your bike and hiking it up a lot of the way isn't viable, no matter how much willpower and conditoning you have).

I also went biking on Monday, a nice casual ride up at Lake Hodges with two other experienced bikers and two newbs.

Shadarr is right.  There is a huge, huge gap between the men and the women and even the stinky men would dominate the best women to the point where the game would just be ridiculous.  The same goes for most sports.

I was trolling. A bit. I know there are some rides where it's stupid to climb, but if downhill is all that a rider does, I reserve the right for a small bit of snobbery. Some goombahs on those downhill bikes are basically pushing motorcycle frames with no engines, and don't ever climb. I respect a well-rounded rider. I'm also old enough that I see my mortality, and have no desire to do crazy shit anymore.

I climbed the upper part of Noble recently... about 45min of climbing, I think. Some scary-ass parts on that ride... one slip and you could be dead. Not the kind of ride I want to do when tired. I'm a strong climber for someone that needs to lose 30 lbs. Because of my size and upper-body mass, I'll never be competitive against most of the tiny wiry fucks on the trails, but that's OK.
