I-Pod is awesome, White certainly went bigger and harder than everyone else like he knew he'd have to, at least he gave us a show I don't think any of us can imagine that kind of pressure.

Not to repeat myself too much, but he left a bad taste in my mouth 4 years ago when he cheered over a teammate falling, ensuring him a gold medal.

I was still going for him today, though, cause....USA! USA! USA!

Oh come on, I'm sure he would have congratulated him if he had won, but these are individual contests, what do you expect? He sees I-Pod as a rival that pushes him further and further and yet he was very gracious with him just now.

Let's hope our women's halfpipe team has a better result.

It's the same thing I said the other day. It's an individual contest, representing the country as a whole, so I can see the debate on either side. I just said it left a bad taste in my mouth, that's all. I would've been just fine with him winning just now, regardless.

It's easy to either praise or rip to pieces every little thing someone with so much spotlight on them does. None of us really know what kind of person he is all told.

I don't think anyone is judging him as a person.

Aaaaanyway, is the women's ski jump the only thing left for today?

With all the hype, might as well watch it. Didn't realize it was an event that was going to be done in a single day

Having it out for someone because of soundbites and tv clips isn't a form of judging someone?

I wonder if they'll actually show the whole thing since it's only 12 riders, but slopestyle they only showed the same ~5-6 people throughout the three rounds.

I'm so glad I don't have to watch those broadcasts anymore. Sometimes it pays to work in the evenings.
