Shaun White Nearly Gets Decapitated on the Half-Pipe

February 1, 2010

For those of you who were busy stocking up on discounted deli meats or making obscene Pro Bowl prop bets this weekend, you may have missed ESPN’s X-Games, which featured the world’s best snowboarder nearly losing his head.

During a practice run on the half-pipe, Shaun White appears to over-rotate and, as the announcer so eloquently put it, “catch his head on a block of ice.”

After watching White get up right after the accident, I immediately moved snowboarders ahead of baseball players and Albanian street whores on the “most badass profession” power rankings.

Props to you, Mr. White.
