The Moment You Are Free

Well, apparently last week's Choose and Defend was not popular among my readers...particularly those who felt it called into question their manhood or their viewing capabilities :-)  So, for this Wednesday, how about a sports query?  And since it is still, apparently, winter, how about a winter sports query?    Tell us which you prefer (Choose) and then tell us why (Defend).  It is just that simple. 

Which sport do you prefer?

Cross Country (Nordic) Skiing
OR

Downhill (Alpine) Skiing


If you have never skiied , use those big imaginations of yours to imagine which you'd prefer.  If you have tried them and disliked both, tell us which one was slightly less horrid and why.   Choose and Defend Wednesday!!!

I vote downhill.

Why? Because where else can you get the agony of defeat.

Beyond that, there's all those cool machine-gun and ski chases in James Bond movies. So, it's downhill.

And yes, I have actually been on that ski jump.

This is an easy one for me. Cross-country. I worked at a ski resort in Big Bear Lake, CA when I was 20 and it wasn't my thing. But I love cross-country skiing. It's like running on snow...And I'm saying that like it's a good thing.

I haven't tried any of those yet, but I would think the skiing would be super fun once I learned how to do it! :)

Downhill skiing, that is.

Downhill. As far as I can tell, snowbunnies don't do cross-country.

Downhill because you can maim yourself a lot easier...
Actually, I need to try cross country again...
