Stephen: Which Olympic sport do you think you’d do well with?
What Winter Olympic sport is harder than it looks? “Speed skating,” posits Deadspin columnist Drew Magary. “I watch speed skating and I’m always like, ‘They should skate faster.’ A speed skater always looks so CASUAL with one hand behind his back, like he’s a waiter delivering a tray of soup to you. Meanwhile he’s actually going 40 mph strapped to a pair of machetes.” As for what sport is easier than it looks, Magary thinks it’s ski jumping. “I know ski jumping looks death-defying on TV, but they give you tracks down the ramp, plus you get big freak show skis to help with the landing…I think if I practiced leaning really far forward enough, I could ski jump and only tear, like, six ligaments.”
