#34: YOU MAY CATCH A PRO FREESKIER DOING SOMETHING STUPID.
The Foundry, Boulder, Colorado
When I worked as a bouncer at the Foundry, one of Boulder’s biggest college bars, I saw a lot of infantile behavior, but none as bad as that of one premier freeskiing athlete. During our sexiest-costume contest last Halloween, the X Gamer, dressed as a 1920s gangster, refused to leave the stage despite the cacophony of boos. He ignored my requests to get down, finally forcing me to push his skinny ass out from the spotlight. Later, I found him instigating a fight with a guy who may not have been able to clear the halfpipe but could’ve slapped him sideways. I intervened right when X Gamer’s bodyguard arrived for cleanup duty. The huckster’s bravado turned to tears when I threatened to throw him out, so I sent him to time-out in the back of the room to suck on his bottle of Cristal.
