I know I wasn't the only one holding my breath last night watching the men's halfpipe finals at the Vancouver games. As Shaun White made his first straight air at the beginning of his run, I'm pretty sure my stomach went with it. I'm no expert, and it was easy for me to see why he is king of the sport. Shaun White made it look easy to flip around in all sorts of insane twists while soaring 20 feet in the air. It was insane. And awesome. And I was freaking out to watch him win gold!
My favorite part about the athlete? He seems so modest about everything. I also think his hair is part of his power; kind of like the biblical hero Sampson. 1 inch of hair equals soaring 1 ft in the air... Don't you think? Go Shaun. Go team USA. Go Olympics. Who doesn't like spending two weeks making a really nice bum-groove in their couch while glued to the television?
