Met an olympian skeleton once and said something similar about how crazy it was to go head-first. Her response was that skeleton athletes think luge is more dangerous because in luge they can’t even see where they’re going. Apparently most of the luge steering is done by memory. Really made me wonder which is actually…
Battle of the Brians - Boitano and Orser

Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the QMJHL:
Alcohol consumption: definitely not Christian. Except for the oldest and most exclusive beers.

Many thanks for both of you for highlighting this effect. I experienced it and never knew until reading these last articles. Got my legs taken out from under me and woke up on the gym floor during lunch hour ball in high school almost 20 years ago. Got myself to my first afternoon class a half hour later, couldn’t…
