Winter Olympics 2010 starts off with a tragedy, Georgian Luge Olympian Nodar Kumaritashvili died in a practice session. Now looking at the video on NBC, it looks he died when he flew off the track and took the impact onto the steel structure. It is so dumb that nobody ever thought of the idea to put large paddings outside the track to protect the athletes. The only thing that protects the lugers and bobsledders are their helmets.

Luge and bobsledding made be a boring sport to some like me, but I always knew it was a danger sport because of the idea of what would happen if an accident occur the athletes flew off the track. I've seen tv shows make fun of the sport because of how silly it is, well they better rethink that because its fast and dangerous.

One sport that made a major change

Well, Super Bowl XLIV is over which is the end of the season. What to look forward now in sports?

MLB season won't start for another 2 and a half months.

Who cares about the PGA Tour and the PGA Major Tournaments with Tiger Woods gone. I surely don't care. Will Tiger ever came back as a dominant golfer? Breaking the most major titles won will tough or impossible now.

Nothing interesting in Tennis world. The Austrialian Open just ended with Roger Federer winning his 16th Grand Slam. Its going to keep rising. I think he'll have close to 30 Grand Slams at the end of his career. We have to wait until May for another exciting action in Tennis. The French Open, I'm referring to.

My fourth favorite sport to watch is Nascar. There is something to look forward and that is Valentine's Day weekend.
