Exactly, goodbye 30+ degrees and scorching sun all day :hearts::clap:

 

Oh well, I was a big follower of skiing few years ago (especially around Vancouver Olympics). But nowadays I feel like watching 2-3 races per season is enough, since every race is the same anyway. :p

You may have recorded a race and accidentally watched that recorded race every time there was a World Cup on TV? :evil:

 

Because I've seen a whole lot of different stuff last year :d 

 

It's like saying every football/handball/water polo match is the same: it's always two teams and often one or more of them makes some goals and in the end there's a winner or a draw.

Well, in men's technical events for example there is a same pattern going on and on if the conditions are not the best. Favourites lead after run 1, but then there is some lucky guy who was 28th or something after first run, He has a perfect conditions in run 2 and suddenly he finishes on podium on something. Yet the commentators keep saying "surprise, surprise". :p

 

Oh, yeah, and how many globes Hirscher won in a row? I stopped counting few years ago. :lol:

You mean, how many times were others just not good enough? Five times when talking about the big globes if I'm not mistaken ;)

You mean, how many times he vultured a globe only after an opponents injury when he was out-classed all season prior to that. Two out of the five if i'm not mistaken. :whistle:
