Has anyone seen ski jumping (pro) in person. I lived in La Crosse WI for a couple years. Nearby, they used to have the annual Westby ski jump. It was really something to see if you haven't seen that sport live before. It requires nerves of steel to go down that jump. At Westby, there are some old wooden stairs that go up the slope adjacent to the jump. You can walk up those stairs while the jumpers are going by and it is amazing how steep it is and how fast they get going not to mention how far they sail. Of course, for the fans at Westby, it is all about drinking your beer before it freezes in your glove. The ski jump is just a reason to have brats and beer. Good times.
Right-tighty--lefty loosey...man did the guy let the villiage idiot do his binding?
The binding coming off was a result of him letting his tip down. The air caught it, and pulled it back until it popped off. If his binding was tighter, it would have flipped him over resulting in landing on his head and serious injury. He should be glad that thing came lose.
