If it's Thursday, it must be X Games

That's right, X Games 12 kicks off today in Los Angeles.
Watch for the usual surfing, skateboarding, BMX freestyle, Moto X and rally car racing.
Wait a minute - rally car racing? This X Games celebrates the debut of a new sport, in which street-legal rides carry a driver and navigator a variety of road conditions over asphalt and sand, on straight-aways and around hairpin turns for an eight-stage race over two days.
"Think Tour de France on four wheels and ($3.40 a gallon) gas," says the X Games website.
