Get Buck

What else is there to say?  I love it.

I would have added bonus points for camo but still a solid showing.
Thanks to Kayla for the pic.  Submissions to theamericanmob@gmail.com

PS... I have a GOLD mine coming up so stay tuned.

X Games: Moscow

Brittany Phelan doing the damn thing at the dual slalom in Russia.  She GETS the PEOPLE GOING.

COURSE! COURSE!

Yes.  YES.  YES!
"That man keeps yelling course?  Which way do I run?"

"I chose WRONG!  And I was DOING SO WELL!"
The first necessary double hand block I've ever seen.
Badasses never look in the rear view mirror.  They just leave corpses.

Sweet Mother Of God.

Peter Fill, I hope you are thanking God, Allah, and 6 pound 5 ounce Baby Jesus Christ tonight.

Tony Hawk's Underground wallride, right there.


Bode coulda pulled it off.
Hey Peter, if you need the number of a good dentist let me know.
Oh... and that's just NOT what you look for.
Bro your binding is popped.  It's popped.  You can't get into your skis when your binding is popped.

#ThisOneTimeAtSugarloaf

Well... at least there is D'Ellie's at the bottom for you.

This is NOT what I signed up for!  PIZZA!  PIZZA!  PIZZA!
"Omg I'm so Arc City right now #knifing #shredding #hometownhero #sugarloaf"
That's why you don't put weight on your inside ski, I guess.
Oh well.  At least my teammate is sure to learn from my mistake.
Oh...
Wait...
And I guess that's why you listen to the course report.
Quit trying to swim up the mountain, MISSY FRANKLIN.  MICHAEL PHELPS.  LOCHTE.
Ew, gross.
Hello?  Guest services?  Yes?  This is Robin Overing.  Yes, would you please connect me to lost and found?
...
I seem to have misplaced my outside ski.  Yes, I think I've lost it.

Real talk though, if you don't have Sugarloaf Guest Services, Sugarloaf Shuttle, and D'Ellie's phone numbers in your phone, you don't even deserve to have a FIS license.

You should probably have at least one Hunter Hero level on the Big Buck machine underneath Geghetto's.

College No Parents!

Carnival racing:  It's not for everyone.  This chump is not living the life of champions.  Then again, we can't all be 24 year old Scandinavians or 26 year old Canadians.

"OMG my run is going so well!  I'm totally gonna make flip from bib 51!"

"Hm I guess THAT'S why you do squats in the off-season."

"I hope that was just a fart and nothing solid..."

"Um... is it time to rip off an inside ski turn?"

"Oh... no.  It is not that time.  It's not that time at all."

"Probably not making flip anymore.  Probably not.  Nope."


Where am I?



"How'd our Nordies do this weekend?"  "Ahh... they all hiked." #Shpalljoke

Cereal Box

Maybe you shouldn't get your toy bindings from a cereal box... you little kid.  Trix boy.  Captain Crunch.  Dom Garand at SLU carnival.
"Well, at least hockey is back."
And need I mention:

Two weeks, two blogs.  Dom, I don't know if karma's a bitch.. but I am.

OMG Carnival Racing!

It was everything I hoped for and more.  Unfortunately, not everyone fared as well.  May I present the get worked squad for today's race.  Discretionary pictures added as well.  PS I really wish I had Microsoft Paint sometimes.  That is all.

Are you sure there's any gas?
 ...
In that lawnmower?

True story... this was my bib buddy today.  You gotta do better than that, bib buddy.

Was That Gate Wet?

I don't know.  I don't know, I can't tell.

Got windshield wipers?

Big Falls...

Little mountains.  Shots come from Midwest USCSA competition.  Chump in red suit unknown to me at the moment.

Yeah bro I heard water skiiers drop skis all the time.  How's standing on one foot, flamingo boy.
And Jenny Finch, elite softball pitcher, winds up to bring the underhanded HEAT!

I'm really puzzled by this.  Did an arm come off?  I think I see a head, an arm, and another arm,
but definitely only one foot.  What is going on here?
Get worked squad on deck.
I don't have video but I'm kind of thinking this was just a real slow speed endeavor.
Oh.. that blue gate is almost here.
Oh yeah that blue gate is definitely still almost here.
Yes, I think I'm at the blue gate now.  Yes, I'm at the blue gate.
Why... is that a ROCK SCRATCH on the back outside edge of this ski?  Egregious!

The world famous caddy lines up a putt for his liege.
All in all looks like a healthy dose of drama.  You do you, Midwest.  Just keep taking pictures of it for us.
