I said 'ok I have to do well. I can't let him beat me'," said Takahashi. My beef against curling, however, is that I'm not convinced that it is an athletic event. Any sport where you can perform it with nachos stuffed in your mouth and a beer in one hand - I'm not sure that qualifies as an athletic event.
Granted, the curling folks at these Olympics don't do that.

But to me, curling is like darts and poker. Exciting, but not athletic. I'm not saying the folks performing at this high level are not athletic I am saying the game isn't athletic.
I don't think she even applied, and I obviously got in, and, as such, I got MY life-changing event. Anyhow, Stephanie was a figure skater back when she was younger… and I recall marveling at the muscle she packed on her beautiful thighs that pressed tightly against her jeans. I had played a lot of soccer and done a lot of leg weights, but she… she had thighs bigger than me… which she found embarrassing, but I found sexy.
Of course, in the years after I came back from Japan, I worked my ass off at the gym 6x a week, and probably ended up with thighs more muscular and larger than hers. Hell… my tibialis anterior and peroneos longs are so muscular that I've dared people to punch the front of my shin's muscle area and watched them come away shaking their knuckles in pain.
You can try your luck even now. There is no pain. Anyhow… enough ego blow… until later, of course… I just wanted to say how much I admire figure skaters - yes, because of Stephannie, but since then because of the amateur athletes involved in competitions like the Olympics.
Now… back to the Sochi Olympics. I was watching the Ice Dance competition - by the way, I can skate… sort of, but my eight-year-old son, Hudson, is 10x better - and the very first team I saw was a duo from Japan. While looking every bit as Japanese as any Nihonjin person from Nihon Japan I have ever met, these two - a brother and sister team - have gaijin foreign to Japan names: Cathy and Chris Reed.
Yes… Cathy and Chris Reed of Japan. Kimono-like, but not so much. I suppose that shouldn't have confused me as much as it did.
After all… I am a Canadian of Indian decent born in England. If I was good enough, I could probably have represented Canada or India or England in a sport at these Olympics as its oldest competitor.
Is there a sporting event for ego mania or back ache?
