X Games 2013

While watching X Games last night I saw this kid get planted by his sled. At 2:44 you can see the sled rail him right in the noggin----i thought he was dead for sure but he got up and walked away---amazing

That's as bad as the Man on a Buffalo dropping a stove on your foot. Ouch!

On a lighter note, if you watching the X-Games this Sunday, please cheer for Dara Howell in the women's slopestyle. She is from my town in the Hinterlands. Talk about devoted parents...

Nope, not dead.

He was a solid 8 inches from being dead, no big deal.

Someone will die in that sport soon enough though from continuously pushing the envelope to win, at which point ESPN will cancel it from X-games and reinsert SkierX and BoarderX.

Re: X Games 2013

Some dude just took a huge fall in the snowboarding big air. Overrotated a Triple backflip and knocked himself out cold.

EDIT: Video:



It should be appearing above these words, but I don't know how to do it apparently.

Doubt it.
They're all inherently dangerous sports. People die (too) frequently doing them, regardless of whether or not they're competing. I don't think that's going to cancel the contest.
