Panorama and Steamboat Carnage

Merry Christmas bros and brahs.  Santa brought me some good pictures for you.  As the boys say when Michael Bolton gets in the studio, "Let's get to it!"

This picture reminds me of a classic baseball pitcher windup before bringing the heat.
Koufax, anyone?
Relatively nonchalant expression, truth be told.  Care more bro.  Care more.
Oh, NOW it's getting a little more serious.  Utah suit, Stockli skis, I give it
a 5% chance this guy speaks English as a first language.
And so the straddle series commences:

Nothing like bowing your head in disappointment before you even get past the gate.
So THIS is what Ruxin's vinegar stokes look like!

Straddling is bad, but straddling and sneezing simultaneously is just no good at all.

... And thus concludes the straddle series.  Bonus shot:

A cry for help if ever I've seen one.  Sorry dude, the gatekeeper isn't gonna deal with that snow fart.
Thanks to Heather for the pics.  Send crashes to theamericanmob@gmail.com!

That's GOLD Jerry, GOLD!

While it may have been a devo caliber race, this is truly an olympic caliber crash.

Well you can't cut any grass without reaching down to start the mower.

Eying that combination is strictly wishful thinking at this point.

The Gangnam style dance is two or three months late, brahski.

"Well, if Liam Mulhern can pull this off..."

"I should be able to also, right?"

Nope.  This looks like a catcher who got a curveball on the outside when he
was expecting a fastball down and in.
Good thinking letting everyone know who your ski sponsor is.  Wouldn't
have wanted to leave any question about that.

Ahhh... he's a trooper.  I can't complain much.

Ladies and Gentlemen...

Your turn of the year.  Liam finished 27th on this run of a Sunday River E-Cup, beating lots of people. Like me.  This skiing is exquisite.
Leeeeeeyummmmmmmmm getting too many angles for his own good

Blowing RIGHT by this exit on the highway
Liam is certainly listening to Chamillionaire right now, that's all I have to say

"Goose, I'm gonna hit the brakes and he'll fly right by us!"

A quick gear shift from reverse to forward and it's time to go!

PS:  The underrated funniest part of this might be the course report at the end.  Your classic, "Course runs great, no issues" understatement.  We were about to invade Normandy dude.


A Little Canada Action

Yum, yum, yum.

Bro... you look like a rabbit.  Get it together.

Don't pretend that you are arcing around that gate on purpose dude just DON'T.

Bambi on ice.


Alright coming over this turn where the photographer is better rip a sick turn oh WHOOPS no ski.

Lindsey and Lauren's Left-Footers

Nice alliteration Ian.  Thanks Ian.  Thanks.

What's the move here...

It it to put up my right hand?  Is that the move?

Hit the brakes, Maverick!  Hit the brakes!

Or just ski BETWEEN layers?

Wait no fuck that's a bad idea too

Down goes Frazier!  Down goes Frazier!

This isn't where I parked my car

Maybe I should try to climb up the hill with my hands?

No!

Double no!

Random World Cup Wrap-Up

A few Eurosport pics from the last couple weeks.

I don't think your dentist would approve of your flossing job


WORLDSTAR!  THIS IS GOING ON WORLDSTAR!

Oh yeah, I've been looking for a cannon to get shot out of too.  Nice helmet bro.

Sad Lindsey is sad

Slalom: THPS Edition

Sometimes you gotta grind some rails in the course if you want to win norams.  Trevor Philp showing us some Bob Burnquist circa 2002 moves.

Snap off the gate, press X to ollie

Press triangle, looks like a 50-50 grind to me

Poop your pants


And keep going after dropping a quick "WTF" to the coaches watching

At Least...

They put some B-Net in for Will Gregorak.  I hope you're okay big guy.

Well THAT's not it.

It doesn't appear that will be it either.

From B-Net to Tree Net

Beaver Creek 2012

First off, congratulations to Brennan Rubie for scoring points (27th!) at his first world cup!  Obviously that must feel better than this:
Another victim falls prey to the buzzer of Ted Ligety

But not everyone was quite so lucky...
Your classic inside ski turn, never recommended in speed racing

Obviously Ski Jumping is an Olympic Sport, but is it really appropriate right here, right now?

Bruce Lee would be proud of the flexibility you have on this kick


But if you want to dance... you gotta pay the piper
Video of the crash:

And finally, one more picture that may or may not be of the crash.

Letting go of that pole might not be quite enough
