Glad to hear he is on it. Looking forward to watching the halfpipe competition tonight.

Lindsey Vonn kicked some butt today too btw. That girl is also pretty damn amazing.

huh? i'm sure he did a back to back double cork 10 in his first run. or was it the 2nd, which he messed up landing the 2nd one. or was it the double backside rodeo he did in his first run...?

i don't think it's all about tricks. shaun's airs and grabs look very nice, clean and stable.

People often overlook this point because it is Shaun White. Everyone fishes for reasons why he doesn't deserve something.

Shaun White is super clean and super silent in his maneuvers. Look at all the slowmos of him. There is absolutely no movement once he gets into position.
