Some exposure for the sport....

    I don’t have any social media accounts (other than this one). Someone send him some encouragement and suggestions - such as explaining the Slalom course and relating the physical demands and physics to other sports. Plus, a discussion of overall fitness as a benefit (and a requirement) of the sport would be cool.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    Maybe Marcus, Matteo, or John would consider a collaboration?

    Well that’s just plain fun. Look forward to whatever is next!
    Assume someone will post a link sometime.

    Would be great to see Marcus do one of his trailer interviews, then go out and see him ski & get some coaching. As a pro athlete, I'll bet he will progress quickly with some proper coaching.

    @Rednucleus /sarcasm font on/. He is a kicker so by definition not an athlete :).

    He posts ski vids on IG quite a bit. Parrish got him a sweet Goode w Eagles graphics before he went to HO.

    @Rednucleus HMM non athlete?!? Good Talk Russ...
  • thagerthager Posts: 5,145 Mega Baller
    Using that line of thought one could argue skiers are non-athletes also.....
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    Welcome @DAKERS! Great to have you part of the addiction and now the forum.

    You've blamed the wrong person for the comment, but seeing as the actual perpetrator is my friend and neighbor, I can safely say he was not being serious.

    Love that you are mixing two of my favorites. But please keep any talk about the 49ers to a minimum. Go Rams

    I don't know if it is still the case, but I seem to recall that the highest scoring player on the Lions was the kicker. And, yes, I am aware of what that says about the Lions.

    @DAKERS my all time favorite NFL player is George Blanda. Great kicker, then always brought in at the end of the game to pull off a QB miracle. I like kickers!!

    Yeah Birds! Eggals as they say were my wife and I grew up in south Jersey. @DAKERS my dad played for a semi pro team, Sun Oil in Philly way way back. He was OG and DT. His teammate Chuck Bednarik was OC and DNG. Dad always said “glad he was on my team” :)
  • We simply need more of this type of exposures thanks David Akers

    You got to respect anyone that can survive the fans in Philadelphia.

    @DAKERS A few years ago, when the nfl draft was in Dallas. You came into town to do a little trash talking. The next day, you got invited out to our lake to ski. One of our die hard cowboys fan neighbor was not too happy about it when he found out after the fact. He did get over it eventually.
