Why are those guys sitting on each other on that tiny sled? What the hell are they doing with those brooms? And why does that skier have an assault rifle?
All valid questions for Winter Olympics novices. Personally, I look forward to an event when, once every four years, I get tremendously excited about sports I normally wouldn’t think about. I find myself screaming at the TV while some Swiss dude, who I had never previously heard of, does incredible things on a snowboard. I agonize over a figure skater who does the perfect routine, but misses the landing on her last twist. And, of course, there’s the hockey.
