Our man on the Olympic scene, Todd Richards, is having a busy week. Besides texting me (possibly during the halfpipe Final), doing voice work for NBC, snuggling up with Celebrities and actually getting serious about a thing or two Todd’s head is spinning. We know you don’t care though, so we cracked the whip and got a quick High Fives out of Old Man Winter.Â
How are the Olympics, are you enjoying yourself, is it weird?Â
I’m having an awesome time. Lots of good restaurants. I got a photo with Terry Kidwell, had a chance Todcast on the Bob Costas set withÂ JohnnyÂ “Twister Spread” Mosley, and Lindsy Jacobellis signed a helmet for me.
Are you going to kill the Tiny Dancer for not getting a medal?
Don’t even say that. This may be the first time I have ever given a serious answer but I know exactly where he is at mentally. Working Â so hard to get to something and thinking you failed. It’s not a nice Â place to be mentally.
Who were you most impressed with in the Halfpipe thing? Â
I thought Lago rode soo well. I kind of think Peetu got hooked up in the score department. That silver is Lagos.
How do you feel about Boarder Cross?Â
You know, I like it. I just wish Lago and Louie and my other homies would do it. Not make it so jockey. I think Kass would kill at boardercross.
How do you feel about the product placement Omatic got during the Halfpipe coverage?Â
Oh I enjoyed it. Seeing as how I am stripped of my sponsors while I’m talking for NBC.
Bonus: Weirdest thing you’ve seen up there so far?
Not really weird but awesome–Steven Colbert and me getting a Todcast with JimÂ Cantore from The Weather Channel.
