Hey, look! It's Shaun White's hair!

And now for the Blob's Winter Olympics Update, because I remembered to do it today:

* Shaun White mopped the, uh, snow with the competition in men's snowboard, winning the gold as expected.

My take: I really think he could fly if he tried.

My bonus take: Plus, he has awesome hair.

* According to people who know way more about these things than I do, Johnny Weir of the U.S. got robbed by the judges the other night in men's singles figure skating.

My take: I thought they got rid of all the East German judges.

My bonus take: But what do I know. I still think a triple axel is something Jimmie Johnson's crew chief, Chad Knaus, tried to sneak by the NASCAR officials at Daytona.

* Lindsey Vonn won the women's downhill despite her severely bruised shin, perhaps the single greatest moment so far in these star-crossed Games.

My take: The next time some I-make-more-than-the-gross-national-product-of-Brazil baseball star goes on the DL for a hangnail, I'm sending Vonn to beat him up.

My bonus take: Because, you know, she could.
