I wasn’t planning on posting this here. I like to think of this as a family blog, not that anyone under 18 probably ever reads it. It’s the ex-high school teacher in me I suppose. But yesterday, when I rode the chairlift with two skiers (actually one was a snowboarder, but same difference) it made me laugh into my fleece collar. It was Bro-this-and-Dude-that-and-HolyShit-Bro-and-OMGDude-Did-you-see-me-send-that-shit? I-mean-I-was-seriously-killing-it.
Then I remembered this video that so many of you forwarded to me and said, “I know you can’t post this on your site, but this shit is hilarious.”
Then I got to thinking. Why can’t I post this? This shit is hilarious, and my mom is not easily offended. In fact, she taught me the s-word so I know she’s not going to stop reading this blog just because I posted this video. Mom is great that way. And anyone else out there that can’t already go purchase a ticket to a rated R movie, you don’t have to watch it. Hopefully you’ve already moved on to another site by now, if not, well, I warned you. So here it is, Shit Skiers Say:
Last week I urged you, dear reader, to reach out and high-five someone. Thank you for sharing your awesome feats and moments of high-fiveability. With all that feedback, I’ve decided to make a weekly high-five report, checking in with photos, videos and my recommendations for finding high-fiveability in your life. These weekly posts are a bit of an experiment, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes. I will share tips for trying new sports, offer links to worthwhile blogs and websites that are being awesome, provide travel ideas, give weather tips and anything else I find high-fiveable. I also encourage suggestions. This is a chance to promote your little corner of the high-fiving world. You can either comment below or go to the “Contact” page above and shoot me an email directly. I love getting emails about this blog, but not spam, so obviously you need to take away the parenthesis in the email address.
Here’s a video of athletes doing some of the most high-fiveable feats on the planet. My palms went wet and itchy just watching this. Aptly, this video posted on YouTube by the band Hadouken, is called “People are Awesome”. Indeed!
I invite you to follow my blog. Just click on one of the buttons in the upper right hand corner to follow via your favorite social media site, or subscribe via email. You’ll be glad you did!
Here’s an example of what NOT to do. Take a look at this video, but be sure to watch the entire thing. Just crazy.
