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.
