Default 2018 Winter Olympics

Good luck to everyone out there. I realize that there are some who don't get into the games as much as others. But to the enthusiasts, may your country do well, but now as well as U.S.A. . No seriously, may everyone do well and stay injury free.


P.S., I've always wanted to be a luge or skeleton rider. Also, I've always thought I'd be a great driver for either the 5 or 2 man bob sled team. But alas, I've never received a call form the US Olympic Committee. Probably because I've never ridden a bobsled.

The 1956 Winter Olympics were held in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy. While skiing there I took a ride on the bobsled. You get a driver and a brakeman in a 4-man sled. They give you a very good push at the top. We had a good clean run and our time was in world class standings. They only run it at night and only the corners are lit. Talk about pulling G's in the turns, wow!
