Still keeping my fingers secretly crossed for SIA. If it doesn’t happen, I have to mail some beers to This Guy. I’d rather pick up some free Silver Bullets from the Salomon booth and tell him I bought his beer. Then together we can go eyeball the ladies at the Nobis booth. NOBIS. Canadian. Not Nomis.
You know how you can tell the Olympics are crooked as fuck? They call the Dew Tour and the X-Games reputable. For real:
Just to get it straight, this excerpt came from TWsnowboarding. So really it’s TWsnow that thinks the X-Games and the Dew Tour are credible series of events. Maybe I’m wrong, but aren’t these invite-only events? There is no open format to them. It’s essentially like asking for input on labor unions at a meeting of the Fortune 500. For real if your sponsor is spending piles of money to promote
you, you get to go. Blanco spends his off-time building houses in for Disney and trying to figure out where he’s going to dump the girl’s body when his Gator apprenticeship is complete, and the X-Games goes on fucking standstill to see if he announces to his facebook fans that he’ll be there.
The good news is that el Blanco “Likes” the X-Games.
Yet Andreas Wiig can’t get an invite?
On the other hand the Blanco, one of the best jock-pipe riders in all of snowboardering isn’t even playing in the dew tour, for the winter at least. It makes me wonder if Red Bull sponsors his snowboarding career, but not his skate endeavors.
Amendment 1: Key points to take from todays bloggery:
- This is the most editorial content TWsnow has put out since 1993. But they still kinda, sorta fucked it up.
- Blanco is gonna crack.
- The Credibility/Legit Scale looks something like this:
The FIS < Transworld Media < The IOC < X-Games < Dew Tour < Shayboarder < Nicholas Cage’s Career* < Snowboarding Companies as a whole < The Blanco < Rumorator.com < Omar < Anne-Flore Marxer
* Nicholas Cage’s career inserted as a fixed point for positioning.
