Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you stoked!

So what does a true weekend warrior do? Without a doubt, they watch late night television shows. I myself am a huge fan of Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and have mourned the passing of The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. As I excitedly await the return of Conan to television, I am forced to appease my addiction by watching re-runs and clips of the old show. Here is one I found of an interview with snowboard mountaineer Stephen Koch. While Conan is still the star of the clip for me, Stephen has some interesting things to say as well.

In the same light, America's foremost mountaineer Ed Viesturs was interviewed on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart back in 2006. I found it interesting to listen to him talk about climbing all 14 of the 8,000 meter peaks, seeing as the same feat was just completed by a woman for the first time. A South Korean woman, Oh Eun-sun, finished the monstrous task a few days ago on April 27th, 2010, with a final climb up Annapurna.
