    this is how it goes

    If you are watching us and thinking that it's slow motion, it's not. That's the way it goes.

    That's what I heard a host saying in a TV program about skiing. Can I replace the expression with ''that's the way it is'', please?

    Re: this is how it goes

    Q: Can I replace "That's the way it goes" with "That's the way it is"?
    A: Yes, I think so. (That's certainly true in the example you give.)
