A cool new Olympic sport - and it ain't Curling!

I've never tried snowboarding, and always kind of dismissed it as skateboarders on snow, but I have to say, the "Snowboard Cross" event in the Olympics is awesome to watch. It's fast, difficuly, and very physical -- these guys are jostling each other as they speed down this crazy course in the mountains.

That being said, the "half pipe" snowboarding event is not in the same league. Sure, it's challenging, but it just seems like showboating. I have to ask, if they let half pipe snowboarding in the Winter Olympics, why not half pipe skateboarding in the Summer Olympics?
