OK, I think at this point we've successfully established that Downey IS a pro skier, and that Spinks is not. Furthermore, its been kindly pointed out that Spinks, and most of their "posing possey" (yes, especially you Mr Hartman) are the biggest bunch of losers in CO to have ever fronted their lame skills and image.
I had the pleasure of attending the US Open this year, and witnessed their bullshit first hand. Really, you guys suck, so just give it up and move on to another sport that doesn't know who you are. I know your reading this thread, so I hope that you've noticed that NOT ONE person has stepped up and gotten your back. It would probably only take a few weeks for you to reach the same skill level in something you've never done before, so, the field is wide open!
Now, while the callouts are being made: PHROSTY
Get off your soap box. You are a no one, much like Spinks and Hartman, and it seems almost silly for you to try to shut down people that DO know what they're talking about. So give it up. Please. And please change your condescending little icon. You're really not looking down on anyone, now are you?
