Frank Gifford called the race for ABC. I think it is the most exciting Olympics event I've ever seen.

Thanks - I've seen all those. I'm hoping to find the original ABC recording of it. YouTube used to have it.

I remember it quite clearly. A classic demonstration of throwing all caution to the wind and going all out in a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be the best in the world and achieving it!

I was expecting the wipe out from the Wide World of Sports "Agony of defeat" intro!

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

He very nearly wiped out God knows how many times but managed to stay on his skis. I just remember it being pretty damn cool. Almost made me want to do the Olympic downhill!

Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.
