SOCHI SCENE: Quick quote: Ligocki's board

SOCHI, Russia (AP) Poland's Michal Ligocki couldn't put together a clean run Tuesday in the men's snowboard halfpipe, finishing 16th of 19 and failing to qualify for the semifinals or finals.

He did write legibly on the bottom of his board, though, writing ''Mellow Livin''' and separately listing the things ''I (heart):''

''Merry, my family, my friends, my country Poland, snowboarding, surfing, golf.''
