For the wary, for the same price you can get a used Aeron or Steelcase in perfectly good condition for about the same price. All the comfort without any of the embarrassing style.
Eventually you play for hours on end as the comfort of the chair allows you to play for far longer than in a normal chair. You sink in its folds as it envelopes you. The neck brace is your neck. The backrest becomes a permanent vertebrae. You become an amorphous blob, effortlessly transitioning between chair and…
She really is focused on going downhill as fast as she can. This Olympics it looks like she’ll take a lot of inspiration to do this from Tiger’s career.
Uh yeah, unless you’re fine with multimillion dollar corporations dictating the news to you.
When finally reached for comment, Wendy’s was notably frosty.
Is it weird that I kinda like that all black one (Latvia) the best? Yeah, that’s weird. And Elisabeth Vathje’s helmet?...
Nice to see some Haida art get some representation.
If you had your feet out slowing you down the whole time, and took 10x longer than any Olympian, sure you could survive.
If she thought she could make it through the whole program, she wouldn’t have worn the ace bandage (I’m assuming that it would limit movement). She needed the ace bandage for support as she knew that she was going to quit halfway through, and therefore be some sort of inspirational story who tried but couldn’t finish.…
Counterpoint: It’s fine that Matthews, Eichel and Gaudreau aren’t there. The hockey in 2014 was high-level but boring, boring, boring.
Especially when you can run your own World Cup in the summer and keep all the money for yourself. I assume the same will inevitably happen with FIBA and the NBA. There’s no reason for NBA teams to take on such huge risks and give the money to some lazy sportocrats.
Nice Spengler Cup reference. But this isn’t about Bettman. It’s about the fact that the IOC wasn’t willing to give the NHL literally anything for the NHL shutting down for 3 weeks (even if the IIHF stepped in at the last minute) and the fact that sending players to the Olympics has netted the NHL almost nothing.
I’m not here to defend Bettman, but let’s not pretend like the Olympics are some paragon of virtue that are automatically entitled profit from free labour from elite athletes...
The one good thing to come from this tournament is the skill gap between the have’s and have not’s is much closer now, and all the have not’s certainly know it. I could easily get on board with a gold medal team from Slovenia or Switzerland or somewhere that will never have a chance once the NHL comes back to the…
3 on 3 overtime on Olympic-sized ice is fuckin bonkers.
This is a good idea. I agree that two times per year the lottery ball that comes out should be blank and that means that the player drafted at that spot should be fired into outer space. It’s tough but fair and as a law and order candidate, I support this.
The French uniforms make them look like cans of Red Bull.
It’s all downhill for him now.
I think his real early start in the downhill portion helped too as it seemed like the wind picked up as run went along. Some of the good downhillers who went later put up slower times than I expected with what looked like pretty clean runs
Growing up is learning about how shitty the Olympics are, to the point where it’s hard to enjoy them. I loved the Olympics as a kid so much.
