Why are park skiers SO GODDAMN COOL? It has come to my attention that many professional park skiers have that too-cool attitude, and I don’t notice this as much in big mountain skiers. But, SCREW ME WITH A BROKEN LIGHTBULB, the park skiers are just “too cool for school”; too cool for trainers, too cool for fans, too cool for their moms, too cool for them-f#$king-selves. There is the seldom humble pro park skier like Bobby Brown but I’m gonna say that 80% of the baggy pant-tall tee-Skull Candy-boot flex of 80-bandana faced-doo rag hanging out their back pocket-steez rag hanging out their cargo pocket-wearing cotton while skiing-don’t need a helmet-flash gang signs-snake the park line, and lift line, are too f#$king cool for everyone.
There’s currently a US Olympic Halfpipe ski team member, who I can’t name, says he won’t benefit from an Olympic trainer. WTF, you have the option to a free Olympic trainer and you don’t want one because you think you know it all. I don’t get it.
All we can hope for is that with the increase of age comes the increase of maturity and the decrease of the “too cool for school attitude”. But that theory goes out the window when we look at Ian Cosco, AKA Chug life. And to think that his facebook page has over 13 thousand likes, how? Don’t you people have better things to do. Why would you want to watch Ian and friends slap each other, show their dick, drink copious amounts of booze and get random tattoos when you could watch porn or spend your time on Unofficial Networks?
Maybe our only hope lies in team managers. Park skiing has become so much about sponsorship and money that it often appears that’s kids no longer ski for fun, they only ski so they can rep the Red Bull helmet. If team managers (TM) acted like a parental guardian or even an authority figure there would be less rural white kids from Boulder, CO with a gangsta swagger, and who knows the Breck park might have less attitude. I promise you that if TM’s reprimanded these kids via product and exposure we’d have a lot less gang signs flashed in the Keystones Area 51 terrain Park. Now all we have to work on is the snowboarders who wear tight girl jeans.
