XGames Big Air Part 3

by Nicole Donnelly on May 25, 2010

Smoke Farm

Ouch. I can’t move. Something is broken. Everything is quiet. “Are you ok, are you ok.” I just layed there mortified, in a time freeze that seemed like forever, while they wrapped me up like a burrito and pulled me out on a sled. The crowd went wild as they took me away. I was […]

In a room filled mostly with employees a woman behind me sat with her mouth wide open in disbelief when I commented to the room that I googled all potential new hires before anybody got an interview.
