Your Day 5 Event is MEN'S HALFPIPE
Your Day 5 pick is due no later than Wednesday, February 17, 1:00 PST, 4:00 p.m. Eastern US Time.

About the event:

Men's halfpipe is a form of snowboarding derived from a skateboard competition involving an open half-circle known as a halfpipe. Athletes must try to impress judges in a short period of time using an array of tricks, such as 720 spins, grab tricks, and difficult risks . Contestants are scored on a scale by a panel of judges (which varies depending on competition). http://www.trails.com/facts_13442_ol...ing-rules.html

Gotta go with Shaun White, especially since he's one of exactly three winter Olympic athletes I would recognize if I saw them in the street.

I don't think I have ever even seen a snowboard competition on TV, nor have I heard any of these names before, so I am simply joining the bandwagon here: Shaun White, please.

Goldenland has nothing funny to say with this pick, because our choice says enough with his look. Shaun White

Work has been so completely out of control that I failed to even make a pick. I'm just exhausted. I'd be upset if this was tennis! :cheesy:

I'm disappointed to miss the live broadcast, but at 1AM on a workday, well....

Eh, as catz just said, it's not tennis. Not too upset ;)
