    I like the ski jumping and the Alpine down hill races.

    Who could forget Eddie the Eagle Edwards!

    I was hooked on the Winter Olympics back in 1960 held in Squaw Valley. I was a young boy living in the mountains of Colorado, watching on a small black and white TV, when the American Hockey team won a gold medal. First one in Hockey, in the Olympics for the USA
    Twenty years later 1980, I watched the American Hockey team again win Olympic Gold! Wow was that fun. Most know that their coach the late Herb Brooks, was on the U.S. Hockey Team in 1960 right before the Olympics, he was the last man cut from the team. These are now known as the “Forgotten Miracle” and “The Miracle on ice”

    Following the 1960 games I was forever a fan of the Winter games, Hockey, Skiing, Sledding, Skating, etc....I watch all I have time for.....

    I hope all our kids stay safe....

    In team sports, more than likely!


    On an individual note, Rulon Gardner's victory over the invincible Russian has to be right up there.

    I was going to counter with a fat, alcoholic, unknown, who was the last alternate on the PGA tour, who drove across the Country to play and win the PGA Championship in 1991, then it hit me, golf isn't a sport. So I have to agree, that's probably the greatest upset in sports.

    BTW, how old is the dog in your avatar? My guy, Da Bull, was 10 when we went down with cancer.

    Both Mirk and his sister Nola are happily retired and should(God willing) celebrate their 13th birthdays in late February..he just sired a litter of pups (AI) that hit the ground in August..we kept two, a YLM named Gator (Quickstart Navigator) and a BLF named Maggie (Mirk's Iron Lady or Mirk's Ms Thatcher)

    Thanks for asking
