Kung FU Skiing, Mugged by a tree.

Riley caught a good skier taking a branch to the chin.

My buddy Jimmy walked away with trashed goggles, a bloody lip, a couple good scratches and a sore neck.

I think most of us would have needed a wheelchair.

Yowch! That hurt just to look at. Glad he's OK!

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

Did the same thing a couple weeks ago. Only my branch was way smaller, didn't flip me over and didn't take out my goggles. Still hurt like a bitch, I could taste pine all day and had pine needles up my nose. The bloody ice in my beard made me look super hard core too.
