Rasta Rocket

A couple of weeks ago, I was with some Swiss folks and I was trying to make a joke about how cold it was for a Jamaican where I made the mistake of mentioning Cool Runnings. There was a blank stare, because I expected the title of the jamaican bobsled movie was meant to be the punchline. After a little translation and googling, I found out that in Europe Cool Running = Rasta Rockett. Here comes round two!

Growing up Errol Kerr split his time between Westmoreland, Jamaica and Lake Tahoe to be a ski-cross competitor in this week's Vancouver Olympics. I can imagine qualifying for a winter olympic Jamaican team, the complete opposite of the summer counterparts. This is just amazing, Jamaica is all about having a good time, even in freezing weather!
