Playing games on ice with a knife on each foot? Nope.

This board is international and in other parts of the world Hockey is not played on ice unless ice is specified.

In 1994-5 time frame, this forum actually had an inline-skating hockey team.

I was watching the Men's Downhill from Wesson(?) yesterday. I never noticed the bull-fighting vibe before. Every guy was rying to see how close he could get to the horns without getting caught. That was intense.

That's Super G, almost as exciting/dangerous as Downhill.



Beat Feuz for the win at Wengen not Wesson.

Watch for the second jump. It's a blind jump to an off camber turn. That thing was eating up racers all day. Beat crushes it.

he unjumps it. null push off he stays tucked until he's completely airborne, then he uncurls, extending his body completely ready to soak up the imminent landing. meanwhile he swings his lower legs into plane with the coming landing point, touching down tails first but in plane not favoring either edge and longitudinally with the fall line. super, duper smooth.
