    Olympics Thread

    I know the Olympics are still a few weeks away, but I have been wondering about something after reading about the qualifications for the US bobsled teams.

    In the 2 man bobsled, it is very clear what the duties of the 2 men are. In the 4 man bobsled, what do the 2nd and 3rd guys actually do???? Other than tuck down their heads behind the guy in front of them? The 1st guy pilots and the last guy pushes. What do the 2 middle guys do???????

    They are there to push

    A couple former NFL'ers have done it :

    So once the push is over, guys #2, #3, and #4 just jump in enjoy the ride with no further duties other than ducking down their heads in an aerodynamic position?

    Yup, you want guy # 2 and #3 to have super legdrive..like a sprinter exploding out of his starting block

    If the Jamaicans ever hooked this guy up, it would be crazy :

    I was just thinking of a few cuties of the winter games. Who said curling was not hot. Presenting to you all Milf extraordinaire: Cheryl Bernard.

    Unfortunately, she did not make the cut for Sotchi. They call her "Canadian curlgar" because she is definitely a cougar who can curl.

    All 3 Dufour-Lapointe sisters have qualified for the moguls finals.
    Imagine if they finish 1,2,3 ....that will be a first for any Olympics.
    They are also cute as hell.

    Yes!!! Justine Dufour-Lapointe (the youngest) won the Gold, while her sister Chloe Dufour-Lapointe won the Silver. Their other sister, Maxime, failed to qualify for the final.

    You made Canada proud, girls!!! Well done!!!

    Did you guys see the final of the women's Cross Country Skiathlon race? All of the top 5 women collapsed after crossing the finish line.......the sprint finish gassed them, completely.
