How can you choose only one?

Winter Olympics Really Are On Topic - so post up!

for summitpost. Now I don't watch the Games much as I think they are corrupt and I have issues with how the coverage is delivered.

But I must also say, the winter olympics and in particular "ABC's Wide World of Sports" bears a lot of responsibility for steering me to a mountaineer's life. Watching that ski jumper crash and burn with the Agony of Defeat is pretty much ingrained into my American psyche.

* Lower Limit
-15.7F / -8.7C
* Extreme
-48.6F / -27C
