#11 Commandment - THOU SHALL NOT SLED

Just getting ready for the upcoming ESPN X Games. I will be in the X-Treme Sledding division, for 
old fat guys. Nothing better than rock hard snow, slick hard plastic and a really steep down hill run.
I guess I was just feeling a little left out by my buddy Fishspotter and wife Darlene, who are always hitting the slopes (upright).
Notice the form, One handed rodeo style. I think I lasted 8 seconds!
 Medic! 911! Someone call for help!
 Most of the judges awarded 9.9's for pure style. 
I think I will stick to rowing the boat and fishing.
