  1. Skeleton Event at the Winter Olympics

    When I first heard about the Winter Olympic sport of Skeleton I thought, "Where did they dig this sport up?" But it turns out that this was a bone afide Olympic sport nearly a half a century ago (54 years to be exact...that is a bit of tibia for you).
    I just watched the event, and saw the competitor who won the Cold Medal in by a marrow margin (just fractures of a second!). One of the commentators said that there is a world cup circuit for Skeleton but their winnings are small compared to other sports so they are pretty much doing this all pro bone-o.
    For those of you who think that skeleton is easy you have been seriously miSLED. It takes a lot of skull to do this spine-tingling sport. Unlike the things that you strap on your feet and then ischeum down the hill, you have to lay on your tummy as you sled down the run. I think I would femur comfortable knowing that I had a soft cushion of snow to land in rather than the bone-crunchingly hard ice of the skeleton run. If you don't take the curves just right it can coccyx several seconds on your time. I think Skeleton is going to turn out to be a hip new sport. They probably won't get as much ribbing as the lugers do.
    I hope you found this piece humerus.
