Stratton Airlines

Flights from Stratton leave only on Flygande Fredag!!!  Sean Sullivan doing his best helicopter impression from the mean slopes of Stratton.  Simply brutal.  And yet... I love it.  I live for it.  So buckle that middle seat seatbelt, recline into the old man behind you, and take out some peanuts, because it must be Friday.

No explanation.  No intro.  Welcome to the thunderdome.  I got a chopper in the car.
The sneaky part of this photo... look at the blue-coat coaches head in photo one, and then this photo.
Real fast turn of events.  Whiplash, potentially.  I don't know whom to be more worried for!

That's about right.  Thanks to Dorey White for the photos!  Submissions to theamericanmob@gmail.com, and yes I NEED Paul Stutz's crash from Loveland if anyone has it.  Oh and yeah my first race of the season is December 22nd, see you there.  #NCAAcantshutthisdown

Ooooh, Kill 'Em

Loyal readership,

I have no idea what inspired this dance, but I know it's a thing.

My man Desean:



And to be honest, Urban Dictionary wasn't all that helpful.

That being said, I NEED finish line celebrations of people doing the Oooh Kill Em dance.  I'll blog anything you send me.

Also the main homie Alli needs you to take her survey for class so she can pass.  Remember Alli... C's get degrees... and F's never leave college.  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XH29HM3

Trees Fall Hard...

When the Foreste goes down.  Classic pun.  Ian and blogging, getting it... getting it.  Great submission from Foreste Peterson doing the damn thing at some GS.  Just further proof that running number one isn't for everyone.

I want to say you're pinching.. but you're not even pinching!
I'm just gonna need you to pull that right arm in and....
Noooo... nooo.  Don't be a sidehugger.
Oh, so I guess we're doing this.  You should have worn your armguards
on the other side of your arm.  Bruises on bruises.
 Conclusion and video after the jump:

Taking You Into The Weekend

Not to borrow from Barstool too much, but it's the weekend, let's get weird.

Only missing one to be a carnival team!

Neureuther Doesn't Rhyme With Anything

First of the season from the men's circuit!  Felix Neureuther is a cat, and a cat always lands on his feet.  No screenshots.  Why?  Because you NEED to listen to the audio in this clip.

I GET IT I GET IT

I really need to get these guys as guest bloggers.  Insane audio.  Maybe I need them on a rap song.  Other angle.  Not many angles.  Lovely.


Scrubs gonna scrub.

Hirscher Is Weird

That is all.
Your reindeer doesn't like you.
I know those thanksgiving camps are starting to gear up.  I see the instagrams from Copper and Vail.  Send the slalom ace some stuff.  Lord knows Universal Sports (recently uploaded: Soelden) and Alpine Press (recently updated: ...crickets...) aren't gonna help the blog game.

theamericanmob@gmail.com with that good stuff!

FLYGANDEEEEEE

Just killing it so hard.  Flygande Fredag baybeeeee!  Pew Pew Pew Pew!  Finger pistols!  Blowing smoke away from finger pistols.  Putting finger pistols in imaginary holsters.  I'm doing me.

This Flygande Fredag is brought to you by some guy who just can't handle Beaver Creek.  No, not Aksel Lund Svindal, some German dude maintaining snow contact, just barely.  Definitely gonna be picking up some frequent flier miles on this trip.  End destination, hospital.

Also, this is a sneaky snow fart.  I don't think that spray is caused by the skis.
This Flygande Fredag is also brought to you courtesy of Marcus Caston, who kills it week in and week out, and took this picture, I think.  Please check out his site and follow him on Instagram.  @marcuscaston.  Also follow us @slalomtokyodrift.

Flygande Fredag

DJ Khaled?  Not global.  Prestige Worldwide?  Not global.  Slalom Toyko Drift?  SO GLOBAL!

From my man Rickard in Sweden, I present to you the following:

To be honest my caption game is a little rusty right now.  Sorry.  I'll try to have it back in mid season form soon.
Fredrik Sundqvist from Tarnaby Academy doing the damn thing.  Clearly this a screenshot, and I don't really understand what's going on.  I want to know, but sometimes you gotta focus on the bigger picture.  Getting pictures of airborne Swedes?  In November?  That is BIG for the blog.

Now, wait for it.  Obviously @slalomtokyodrift kills it on Instagram, and is real into the alliterative hashtags on a daily basis.  But Rickard specified that this picture, which he sent on TUESDAY, should wait until FLYING FRIDAY to be published.  Now that, THAT IS HUGE FOR THE BLOG!  Which got me wondering.  What is Friday in Swedish?  Is it still alliterative?  Wait no more.

IT IS!  IT IS!  IT IS!
But wait.  But wait.  What is "Flying?"

OMG! OMG! OMG!
So from this day to my last day, I promise you.  Anytime Slalom Toyko Drifts get a picture or a series of someone flying through the air, it will be blogged on Friday, with the hashtag #flygandefredag.

This, Rickard, Fredrick, and Jakob... This, I do for you.
