Winter X 2013: The Shit We Care About (kinda)


Apparently an X Games drinking game where you drink every time they show or mention Shaun White is a little TOO EFFECTIVE, so you’ll have to excuse the delay on this report. In case you missed it, senior Blanco did NOT qualify first in the halfpipe yesterday. After IPod topped his score — with a run they didn’t show on TV — the tomato had one chance to best his Euro adversary. Instead, he did this:

While everyone sat around scratching their heads/faking outrage, we we’re busy rewinding the DVR to try and find IPod’s winning run, but alas, we were right. ESPN was too busy chronicling the snomocross guys’ deathly crashes to show it. So in case you did want to watch the top scoring run for some reason, here ya go:

And if you really want to enjoy the Extreme Gaymes, we highly recommend this drinking game from Lick the Cat.
