    I meant to bring this up while I was watching the snowboarding events. All the athletes kept reaching into their jackets just before they dropped into the half-pipe. I saw the white wires and wondered if those were in fact iPods they were fiddling with in their jackets.

    Pretty cool.

    I never know what to think about that, if it gets you pumped and isn't an advantage, then great.

    I noticed that too- even during ice skating practices, when the skaters were walking off the ice, I saw a lot of white headphones.

    This really doesn't suprise me. Have you ever noticed how many white headphones you will see in a day when at a ski resort? I always rock my shuffle (which I bought for snowboarding and the gym) when I go snowboarding. It does get me to ride a bit different as well- I freestlye a lot more when listening to a laid back song and I get pumped up a bit for jumps when some Led Zep is playing. :)
