Lou Vittos run was underrated I think. White killed it and Lago did too. The US riders and Kokubo dominate when it comes to getting out of the pipe.

They're pissed a 21 yo snowboarder acts and dresses like a 21 yo snowboarder?

Japan, yall home of the crazy shit, let me be the first to introduce you to normal; 21 yo will act like 21 yo, especially when their job is to snowboard.

I still like Shauns manager, coach or whatever dropping a couple F bombs and shit after White was announced Gold winner. Priceless. Keep it classy USA

I wish the US would crack down on some of these absinine clothes trends we here in the states as much as Japan did on one person.....

....the would would be a better place.

I mean nothing wrong with showing your style, in decency lol, I guess this lines up with the black trackstars who held up a fist at medaling...lol...


What do you value more? Life or Image?

Why couldnt the pipe be as nice as the X Games. The olympic pipe looked way smaller and shittier than X Games. Granted x games prob gets more $$$ and better weather conditions.

I was so bummed to see Jacobellis air it out for the lead to hit the flag and be DQ, that has got to be a huge dissapointment.

It's cultural. You have to understand that they still have strong nationalism and consider Olympic athletes to be representatives of the country, not just of themselves. They aren't like us and the US where everyone in sports wants to be a self-styled enterprise.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Ding!

Its just like being a federal employee, or in the military you have dress codes and uniforms you sign a contract agreeing to uphold a standard to earn a check.

He signed it and now has a obligation, he is past the point of no return to have made it this far to test the waters or be ignorant.
