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!

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.
