    Its not that bad, can be enjoyable if you get into it. Although my interest was mainly stimulated by GB's success

    To be fair, Minute Maid Park is pretty high up on the list of grounds i'd love to visit. Not only is left field ultra short, but a train that rolls on when the Astro's hit a homer - genius

    Minute Maid Park is awesome. The train is totaly cool. Its a real nice ballpark.
    Great seats even from upperdeck if your right behind home plate despite being way up in the sky, the view over home plate is awesome. Flag pole in center, plus the crazy slope, though I'm glad we don't have one of those on my field. Played on one one time that did, I'm running back full speed, I'm right under the ball its about to go in my glove, Bang! I hit some slope and go sprawling on the grass like my sister on ice, gee did I feel stupid.

    I actually kinda like the Astrodome though (first fully domed stadium), but Minute made park is way cooler.

    I've always wanted to try Ice Hockey since watching the Mighty Ducks films

    Wouldn't mind trying the skeleton/bobsleigh type things either

    I assume you are training outdoors? It may seem like common sense but i recently treated a guy who trained for a 10k on a treadmill.. Needless to say he had a very tough time and is still paying the price. They are useful in addition to outdoor training but absolutley not as a substitue.
    Good luck!

    What a fantastic opening ceremony this has been Closing with Pavarotti !

    I love how they've termed the athletes enclosure as a "Mosh Pit", but it's been a great ceremony; Beijing ('08), Vancover ('10), and London ('12) have a lot to give.

    I still think Sydney 2000 took some beating, although that maybe took a bit too long!

    Let the games begin.

    I predicted France to win the 6N but after last weeks performances I've began to have doubts. However, the first games of the 6N always feature un-refined teams! A lot will be revealed with this weekends fixtures!

    Hmm... I always find the opening ceremonies bit to be rather hokey, with this year being no exception.

    Wow! Nice first half from the french today! Credit to Ireland for fighting till the end and pulling back in the 2nd half, although the fact that the french went to sleep probably helped.

    England weren't exactly inspiring tho.....

    Anyone watch the womens moguls? Was pretty good. I thought that Heil was very lucky to win the gold, Traa looked to have had a much better run but then again im no expert.
