Shred Gruumer Posted February 25, 2010 Report Share Posted February 25, 2010 This is not a flame or what ever you want to call it... But countries win metals for what they are good at and are promoted.. Im sure we have good nordic guys and stuff.. but we don't win ski jumping or biatholon.. kids don't do that... and thats fine.. but if we don't push those programs like we dont half pipe don't expect it.. I admire the one off guy who does it on his own and wins it.. its a great accomplishement.. and we know every country has those people.. Canada.. great at hockey... USA great at football. its just what kids grow up in. and if they are only exposed to certain things then you don't get a pelithera of contenders .. I guess Im saying its cool seeing different sport that we don't normally see.. I just wonder what would happen if we supported some of these sports.. to be honest.. I know our town is big on figure skating.. but never seen a speed skater.. Put football in the summer olympics.. golf used to be until no one watched it and it got cut.. come on ..curling.. lets put snow ciggerette toss in it.. what do you put in and what do you not.. like speed skiing.. or speed biking on snow.. where do you start or stop.. its just a question.. just conversation piece so im not bashing or anything.. just thoughts thats all..
