    So i tune into the Olympics tonight and suddenly remember its half-pipe night(no, that does no mean I'm only smokin a half-bowl) and I catch Shaun White doing a qualifying run.

    He is 13' to 15' above the rim and the talking heads are saying that he is holding back and just trying to get into the finals......

    So, who do you think is the best contender for silver?

    :razz:

    Chone Wight is awesome!

    And I heard them saying he was 25 feet above the rim.

    And I think he can win as long as he doesn't bump his face...

    Did you see where his practice half pipe is?
    The man is insane when it comes to snowboarding and skateboarding, he also has very good parents, just watched a special on him the other day. When he was knocked out as a child while at a skate boarding competition, his mom is the one who made him get back out there.

    He looked to be 25' above the rim easily on that last run of his......The guy is outrageous.

    I caught that one too. I was a sweet setup he has there in Colorado. Imagine having your own Olympic size half pipe to practice on!
