The current Olympics men's downhill is how steep? Its vertical drop is greater than the combined heights of the Eiffel Tower and the Empire State Building, writes Chris Erskine in the Los Angeles Times yesterday. This image alone reminds me of dream time. It's a morph of heights and a wooo hoooo attitude.
Haven't see the Eiffel in person, the Empire when young and we were told, drop a penny off the Empire State Building, and if it hits someone, it'll kill 'em. Funny what we remember.
Wish I'd learn to ski as a kid, when close to gravity. I love watching these athletes combine skill and speed.
