I'm not exactly certain what the numbers two and three guys do. If their duties include wetting the bottom of the sled when you realize you're going 95 miles-per-hour down an ice-tube, then I think I'm well qualified.
My favorite quote - because it is has so many existential overtones - comes from the Gold Medalist in the Men's Half-Pipe, Shaun White.
Anyway, after he won the Gold he was so taken by the moment that, when asked for an interview, he said:
"I can't even talk right now. Know what I'm saying?"
Which ranks right up there with my favorite Government Printing Office weirdness:
"This Page Intentionally Left Blank."
The closing ceremonies of the Vancouver games ended with a passing of the torch - so to speak - to the host city of the 2014 games, Sochi, Russia. A chorus from Moscow took the stage and sang the same song that the crew on the Red October sang which, I now realize, is the Russian national anthem.
When it comes to being a man o' the world, I am the number three man in the four man bobsled of life.
