Shawn White Got the US Another Gold Medal Last Night

These snowboarding guys, and gals, have balls of steel. Shawn, at 31 years old, had to lay down a near perfect run in last night's half pipe in order to take over, and win, the gold medal from the Japanese competitor. The U.S. is up to third place in the medal count, trailing Germany and the Netherlands.

    I hope the little Aussi chick is okay. She ate it face first!
    Your right, the snowboarding is the best part of the Olympics.

    One guy from Japan had to be taken off on a stretcher last night. I'm sure there is a video somewhere on the web.

    That last run of his was insane. I've skied since I was in elementary school and have switched to snowboarding in the last 5 or 6 years. I'm more of a blue run cruiser. There is rarely air under my board unless riding the lift. Both of my sons prefer boarding as well. It's fun.

    I just read about it. They are raising cane about him dragging the flag in the snow & stepping on it after he won. Over 13K comments.
