Got up this morning to watch 2man live.

I thought we had the trickery sleds after Bodine got involved. We got smoked

Both sleds mid 20s . only top 20 get to make final run. Maybe women or 4 man will be better.

I'd like to do a skeleton run. Have to be a rush. Brain first right on the ice.

BTW. They looked to still be steering with ropes. Is that what you saw on your ride?

You can take a short class and do the skeleton at lake placid . We had to go down with a guy in front steering and brake man in the back . I don't remember how they steered it.

I got hooked on watching the Bobsled in the 88 Olympics as a kid. A few years ago I went up to Whistler BC to the Olympic Park Sliding Center. They had experience deals you could do for all the sliding sports. We did a few hour seminar and then got a trip down the course in a 4 man sled with a professional driver. One of the instructors was wearing an old MX kidney belt and turned out to be the Canadian that coached the Jamaicans in 88 (The character John Candy played in Cool Runnings).

It was really cool to do, the only bummer was we just got one trip down the mountain and I could have went over and over all day long.

Hillbilly...I can't ever seem to get ahold of you....I'm looking for Cagiva parts!

The last time Americans won an Olympic medal in 2 man bobsled was 1952. A silver.
