THE SEASON IS OVER!!!!!

  Finally is the word that comes to my mind. We raced in Sochi, Russia to wrap up a very unsuccessful season for me. I know most people are starting to get excited about the Olympics next year and the intrigue of Russia, but I wasn’t excited to come here.

Hey listen, I was wondering if you might help me. ‘Cause I’m in the bumper sticker business and I’ve been trying to think of a good slogan, and since you’ve been such a big inspiration to the people around here I thought you might be able to help me jump into – WOAH! Man, you just ran through a big pile of dog shit! Forrest Gump: It happens. Bumper Sticker guy: What, shit? Forrest Gump: Sometimes.   Yep it does… that’s about all I have to say about that…   After some … Continue reading
