Quote from XGames viewing, BMX vert:
Girlchild: Wow. Can you do that?
We ARE going to Winter XGames in Aspen. Even if I have to sleep in a truck, my snowboard and I are goin'.
10 minutes later:
Pastrana just did his double back flip in motocross.
Me: Boychild, once you start tricks on the sled and snowboard, you'll do stuff like that, and I'll be at every XGames yelling your name. No pressure, though.
Girlchild: You can't do that either, Mommy.
Me: No. Can't do that. But maybe you can someday.
One issue with the XGames: major boy-heavy coverage. Once these sports start mixed gender competing as a standard, future generations will take the world to a new, better place.
