good. I looked up to him when I was younger since he was the only skier doing anything cool at the time. I was fortunate enought to meet him a few years back, and did a few turns with him in Whistler. He was a great guy, and a hell of a skier.
Then, at the 98 Olympics, I lost all respect for him. He was presented with the honor of carrying our flag at the opening ceremonies many days before his event took place.
When he did compete, he skied virtually the same run he used to win in 94. He skied well, but Moseley and the Finns skied much faster, progressively, and with more style.
Following his 4th place spot (which is damn good), Jean-Luc preceeded to blame his non-medaling finish on the honor of carrying the flag. Saying, 'whoever does it next better think twice.'
what a whiny jackass. Ill never take anything away from his skiing abilities, but I was apalled that he would actually complain about having to carry the flag, and blame his loss on it (carrying a flag is pretty hard work eh Jean).
Thanks for the memories Jean-Luc, but it's about time you stepped down, cuz it's time for someone else to step up.
sorry about the long rant.

YAY FREESTYLE POLITICS!!!
Did you know the pen is stronger than the knife. And did you know that they can kill you once but they cant kill you twice. Did you know destruction of the flesh is not the ending of life, fear not of the anti christ. Did you know that I exist before the earth and did you know that I exist before the earth...Your body is just a vehicle transporting the soul, it whats inside the vehicle is beauty to behold...It was written up in the book of life.
the only thing that we need now is a 'pika' and this thread will be complete. That thing about carrying the flag is the gayest thing i have ever heard, what a fuckstain.
ever wonder if iliterate people get the full effect of alphabet soup???
jean-luc brassard deserves to die! once i was in tremblant and he was there for some comp. he was in the lobby of my hotel and some 5 year year old kid came up to him and he refused to sign and autograph for him. as i went back to my room the kid started crying in the elevator with his dad. im glad that dumb fuck didn't win shit in nagano or salt lake!
An indictment is not a conviction!

im working on my cossacks, they're damn hard
He was a great skier, and he did alot for the sport. I respect him for sure.
i can somewhat respect him as a skier but as a person, he should be shot!

meh, he was alright and he did do alot for the sport, I just never really liked him.
I met him at the Premiere of Happy Dayz in Mtl, I don't know him personnaly but he had a big impact on skiing that's for sure. I have a lot of respect for him...
I don't care how oldschool he was that guy was sick. In one of his last olympics I saw this feature on him and it showed him dicking around in the backcountry and he was throwing down backflip 720's and all kinds of other crazy shit. It wasn't exactly stylie at todays standards but no matter how you look at it thats a crazy trick. Furthermore he's Canadian.
