Al Trautwig is a dumb ass with his off the mark comparisons of x-country to other sports...Waiting for him to compare it to curling...Big Al just said getting dropped out of the lead pack is like being a crumb and getting flicked off a finger...

The fun's not over yet. The Paralympics are next and tonight at 10.30pm on PBS is a show called Ice Warriors--USA Sled Hockey. It's well worth catching if TV is your thing.

Here's a short look at what it takes:



The USA team is heading to Sochi on the 28th to defend their gold performance from 2010.

RJ, you can't fault NBC for its embracing of hiring the handicapped, can you?

That 50K was an awesome thing to watch. I was in a bar at the ABQ airport
so I was happy! Phuck those guys are fast! But Sundby was punked at the
finish! I know, home crowd and all, but....

Norway did seem to get their XC act together for the last half and all hats
are off to Marit! (wouldn't want to meet her in a dark alley)

YIKES! Now thems I'd like to meet in a dark alley!

So, Marlow, what was the story with Northug? Was he sick, injured, or did
the Russkies do a Yuri Geller on him? And has his mum officially disowned
him? Man, she was HARSH!

Northug had a virus when preparing for OL and lost 150 hours of training. That's possibly the main reason. He's also a bit unfocused - possibly lost to poker playing...
