Look, I took time Friday afternoon to build a snowman and go sled-bounding down a hill. Done with winter.

How long 'til Spring Break?

I actually turned on the TV Sunday afternoon to see which was more boring: The Winter Olympics or Daytona 500. Auto racing was on hold because of a pothole and NBC's Olympics were actually showing Biathlon - dudes cross-country skiing for miles and every once in a while stopping to shoot a rifle.

Who does this?

Hockey. Curling. Figure skating. Meh. It all seems so pointless after a party-filled NBA weekend that sets the table for the 30-game run to the playoffs.

But if you insist I squak about the Winter Olympics, here's my preview ...

Sasha Cohen is hot.

And nice.

What's that? Cohen didn't make the team and doubts the U.S. women will win a medal. Wow. Next thing you know someone will die from sliding down ice on his back too fast.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
