XGames 2009

Last weekend we ALL enjoyed the Xgames in Aspen. This is the third year we have gone up for the winter games. There were many aspects to the weekend. Kyle actually worked for ESPN as the Results/Releases Manager. As it turns out, he loved it and they loved him.

While he was working from 8am to 10pm all week and weekend, Kel Dan and I played. We ate, drank and played a lot of games. Kyle got us media passes so we could access areas of the games that "common folk" couldn't. It was nice, up close and personal. The events get better each year. The guys that ride snowcross are crazy!!! For the first time in history, a guy did a double back flip on his sled....NUTS!!! I thought for sure there would be a death, he lived and I'm sure will do it again. I can't wait for next year!
