Put me in coach - I’m ready to play today

Shaun White is snowboarding tonight for the Olympics. I've never watched snowboarding before but I am totally captivated by this kid and his smile. I follow Tony Hawk on Twitter (don't judge) and he's been tweeting about Shaun off and on these past few days so much so that I haven't checked Twitter this afternoon for fear of spoilers. They just showed his qualifying runs where he nailed the first run and made it immediately into the finals. His second run he skidded out a bit, but that's ok since we will already see him go for the gold.

Shaun has been training for this for the past 4 years, since he last took the highest spot on the podium. GO USA!

I love this kid, but sometimes he gives me a cooky CarrotTop vibe. Men's half-pipe finals are on as I write this!

I like him as he seems pretty normal. Also like Lindsay Vonn and Ohno (oh yes!) Don't like the Jacobellis girl. I remember when she hot-dogged last time and I felt she never really fessed up to it.

Ohno (oh yes!) hahahaha -- I can't wait to say that to Liz in person.
