A little bit west of due north from the Dumbass Dome, nearly smack dab at the north end of the Appalachian Trail, the largest ski area east of the Rockies, Sugarloaf Mountain, has enjoyed abundant snowfall and booming bidness.
Despite having lived in Colorado, New Mexico and Maine, I have never, not one time, ever been
I am further discouraged from doing such stoopididity because of a Winter Sports Dumbass in
Winter Sports Dumbass and a few of his friends had a great idea. "Let's go up to Shit for Brain Mountain and do some sledding!"
At 3 A.M.
Using padding ripped off of one of the towers on the mountain!
Padding that protects skiers from being injured if one should crash into the towers!
Before long, it was David Hubal's turn to haul ass down the moutain on the padding.
He launched himself down the BFH (that stands for Big Fucking Hill) in the crisp 3 A.M. air, the wind blowing into his, the adrenaline coursing through his veins, senses heightned by the rush....until he splattered himself all over one of the towers! Sadly, it was the tower from which David and his friends had torn off the protective padding!
David was 22 years old.
And a Darwin Award Winner.
