Mechelle says: Let’s wrap it up: Snowboard-style

Watching the Winter X Games, I saw one of those “How did he not die?” crashes in what is called snowboard cross, where folks race downhill and go over lots of jumps while trying to avoid taking out each other. Kind of NASCAR on snowboards, and the wrecks can be similarly horrifying.

After one such “wreck” that involved everybody else in some capacity, somehow one snowboarder managed to get through unscathed. And it reminded me of how the Big 12 is looking after this weekend.
