How I know is that Belle is watching pairs skating and critiquing at full volume.
There is no mute button on the remote for this.
Actually, I'm kinda jazzed. I like watching the Winter Olympics quite a bit.
The dancey skatey stuff not so much.
I can relate to most of the rest of it.
I can ski...you there in the back stop snickering.
I took a full day class on snowboarding and after being felled like a tree for 8 hours, I have a real appreciation of how difficult a sport it is.*
I even like watching curling. I know, don't say it. But, it has a lot of similarities and strategy to playing darts, cricket in particular. Not that I could hit the double bull after five beers with a heavy emeffing curling stone, but there are similarities there I can relate to.
* I skateboarded as a kid. I surfed as a teenager - 7'-3" custom Jacobsen surf board purchased at "Jesus is Lord" surf shop in Surfside, TX from the proprietor "Bingo". Topside prepped with "Sex Wax".
In retrospect, the name was a misnomer. The traction and grab was excellent. I'm not sure that would be a positive thing while....uhm..I'll just leave it at that.
Where was I? Oh yes. Being at my favorite ski resort, Telluride, I traded in the board for a pair of skis at the end of the day. I was spending several $K on the trip and I'd had enough of feeling like I'd been hung by my ankles like a meat pinata.
