I'm not sure how many people even watch the X Games here but I really enjoy watching them. I love the snowboarding events most but I also love the ski slopestyle too. Anybody else have any favorites?

Boy o Boy am i ever!  I am so hoping they add my absolute favorite sport to their growing list of up and coming athletic events as it's a real fan favorite too.

I lived in Aspen for a couple of years after I finished law school, a long time ago.  I am hooked by anything relating to sports and snow.

What you can't capture on TV is just how dynamic some of these events are...speeds are a lot faster and jumps are a lot higher than is perceived by watching at home.

Never cared for the X Games. I sat through some of it, and I'd be less bored watching Golf or Tennis. Possibly even the WNBA.

I can't wait for it to be over so it stops playing the same commercial every break on ESPN.

for the Xgames.  I live in the mountains for 3 years and have met/know/and rode with some of the competators.  I owned a snowmobile too so I can get geeked out on that.  I will watch every event I possibly can.
