Slip Sliding Away: A quick and dirty preview of Olympic luge: It's the only Winter Olympic event timed to the thousandth of a second. G-Forces like a roller coaster. No brakes. Blink and you’ll miss it. You won’t want to. A column by sportsfilter member rainbaby.

I guess I'm immature, but I can't help but crack up when I see a two man luge go down the track.

It looks like sex on a sled, yup.

Well written article, rainbaby. BTW, caught some of the luge World Cup on Sunday during commercial breaks of the Georgetown game. Coupled with your article I'm now very excited to watch some Olympic events.

I like the concept of luge but can't actually stand to watch it on TV.

did anyone see the Nascar guys take a whack at the Bob Sled runs? Thats a crack up listening to the good ole boys complaining other competitors of nascar had better house sleds. I am suprised there was no banging or as we say Rubbin Is Racing. It looked fun and was for charity for our own Olympic teams to not have to foot the bill themselvews so good job Jeff Bodine and Company. Wolf Cincotta GO U.S.A kick some ASS
