I like watching Speed Skating, and am looking forward to Torino Olympic.....

I'm a fan of Japanese female sketer "Tomomi Okazaki", whose fans' homepages are this English one or Japanese one and have sent emails. She won a bronze medal at Nagano Olympic 1998, and I bet she will win a medal or two for 500m/1000m races at Torino.

Exactly speaking, I'm just her fan, not of speed skating...<g>

One Aluminum 100.. though I might need to swap tanks at half-time.. Snacks are readily available, so that's not an issue :)

There is no half-time in racing. I thought you could use regular compressed air for as long as you wanted as long you didn't go past one atmosphere (if I remember 30ft?). Drag out the floating gas powered air pump and Gardettos.

Yo, Wolf, it appears that not only are we relative neighbors, but seem to also share a fondness of the roundy-round (uh, that would be stock car racing to the uninitiated).


A lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part!

In Louisiana we'd call that a bayou... and if there was a tree close enough we'd attach a rope and old tire to it. We'd only swim in it once we've found out that there were no crawdads.

Canucks won big, Leafs lost big, if Spurs had just managed to score a goal I'd be very happy with today's results.
