I Got Yer Halfpipe Right Here

Fakie? Fakie? Friggin' snowboarders have their own crazy-ass secret language. I swear, listening to the commentators discussing what the women's snowboarding teams did on the halfpipe last night was like listening to some strange click-and-snap foreign language and trying to figure out if the natives want to eat you or make you their king. The whole thing was incomprehensible to me. And what was with the teammates hugging each other after every single run of the pipe? Unless you're going to ripple-fade to them making out with each other in the shower, their camaraderie and team spirit is meaningless to me.

After watching for only one night, I think I'm done with the winter olympics.
