Just a quick note to let everyone know that NBC will be airing Snowboard X tonight. It’s the first time it’s been featured at the Olympics, and if you haven’t seen it before, you’re in for a treat.
I was surprised at all the comments I heard from friends and co-workers who watched the half-pipe for the first time. Heck! Even my mom watched and commented on it. Shaun White took home the Gold for the US of course, but Snowboard X is a completely different animal. Basically, the sport pits four boarders against one another in a race down the mountain. Often there is some pushing and shoving going on, and the event can be quite heated and frantic. It’s amazingly fun to watch.
In the interest of remaining spoiler free, I won’t mention who wins. Just sit back, enjoy the show, and take it all in. It should make for fun television.
