On January 21st, 2013 I crashed attempting to come to a stop at the bottom of a Europa Cup downhill course. Wait, this is my first blog post. Do people really want to read my self-indulgent nostalgia? Maybe I should write about something more interesting. Something important. Like: Did you know there is a giant FLOTILLA (what a cool word) of plastic in the Pacific Ocean the size of Texas! This video explains a little bit about the problem and how it might be solved http://www.boyanslat.com/TEDx/
But no, that is too political. And the only thing I know for sure about the flotilla is that I am a major contributor… being a ski racer and all. Not really the greenest sport out there if you know what I’m saying.
Hmmm…. Black Bears in Mountains of Croatia, the Russian Gay Propaganda Law, and why Mario Kart on Nintendo 64 is the most entertaining thing ever invented are all topics that I would love to jump into but for the sake of your time, and me finding my online voice lets start with a little background.
