Today ski like a girl is all about Ladies' Ski Cross and the Men's  GS!  Go Bode!  Miller's first Olympic gold in the Super-Combined was the United States' eighth medal (two gold, three silver, three bronze) out of a possible 18 from six alpine disciplines raced so far.

Can Team USA add to it's medal count today?

I think so.  Today, USA has another chance to add to the medal count when skiers Ted Ligety and Bode Miller compete in the Men's Giant Slalom at Whistler Creekside.  The Men's GS is a race where each skier make two runs down two different courses on the same slope.  This could be another big day for the U.S. skiers.  Miller has been the star of the Games, with a gold in super-combined, a silver in super-G and a bronze in the downhill.  He has a chance at an unprecedented 4th medal today (plus his two silver medals from Salt Lake City).  Ted Ligety  is the current World Cup leader in the GS.  Things are looking good for USA!

What will you be watching today?
