Biathlon starts late (again) tonight, so I popped up to the Phoenix Snow Park to watch Women’s Skier Cross. Two observations :
- Props to that kid from Farmington who won Border Cross in back-to-back Olympics. These cross events are filled with crashes, both your own and those inflicted on you by your competitors.
- A crowd of happy Canadians brings out the long-suppressed “Chicoine” side of my family tree. The crowd seemed half Canadian and taking both Gold and Silver this morning brought out their best. If nothing else — watch the awards ceremony. The silver and gold medalists are hysterical.
I would like a meat pie now, please.
