Olympics observations

Olympics observation: The phrase “throwing down” and “straight up” will go mainstream after a few more days of snowboard coverage. I’m expecting bloggers to start writing, “Jeff sure threw down a great post this morning, straight up.” I’m off to bed so I can get up at 2 a.m. to watch live coverage of curling. Not.
