As we wereÂ Sanger Rainsford and his hunting companion Whitney on our way to the Amazon Rainforest to hunt The Most Dangerous Game, Legit and I set off for the Sugarhouse park. Â Armed only with a Nikon D2x and our elusive wits, we were not hunting the most dangerous game, but observing from a far. Â Now you don’t have to know what the sugarhouse park is to appreciate the following, if you are located in a region with a winter season you to can appreciate this. Â Otherwise just laugh at the pictures and use your imagination. Â So basically picture a icy slope with a 30* pitch or so probably 75 yards wide 75 yards long and as many people crammed into this 50,625 sq. ft area as humanly possible. Â Little to none of the The Most Entertaining Game aka humans at this location are familiar with slick surfaces on a regular basis and are unaware of the hazards. Â Below is a picture depicting the scene that is slightly less crowded than usual.
Now you don’t have to use your imaginations, there is a picture to prevent this.
Now this is an excellent depiction of the Anarchy and Entertainment here. Â Lower Left: Clearly a collision of sorts potential concussion on guy on left as he is holding his head. Â Kid in middle unfamiliar with cold weather wearing shorts and possibly getting left leg snapped by concuss victim. Â Read saucer kid appears to be limp with minimal movement. Â Upper Right: Child careening violently out of control backwards towards either the already existing pile up or towards unexpecting child in the lower right. Â Where are the parents here you might ask, probably the concussion victim swearing up a storm on the ground bringing a screeching halt to sunday funday afternoon.This appears to be an older specimen attempting to grab some airtime off of the hay bail to his right. Â The only thing he is going to be grabbing here is bloody shards of frozen grass out of his A$$ for the next week. Â He will more than likely be ridiculed relentlessly around the water cooler for hisÂ donut cushion he will now have to use. Yet another treacherous pile up we see here. Â It is hard to even make out a body to sled ratio in this picture. Â There may have been a family tandem run gone a rye. Â Also note lots of unsuspecting children awaiting potential a chop block. Â Injury meter could be high in this particular instance. I like to call this one the Pete Rose.
It appears Dad bit off a little bit more than he could chew as he attempts to impress on looking off spring with his aerial acrobatics.Though this picture seems like a normal run of the mill crash in burn, it is anything but. Â The boy in the leading saucer went limp here after colliding with the girl and slid to a stop. Â Legit and I observed for about a minute with no movement from the boy. Â With no one else showing any sort of concern for the boys well being we moved in for a closer look. Â Luckily for us, not really wanting to revive anyone he popped up when we were about 7 feet away and stated he was just tired and ran back to the top of the hill for more action. Â This really is much more enjoyable in person, I strongly recommend people watching if you live near a sled hill outside a metropolitan area.
Actual video I found on youtube from sugarhouse park sledding. Â A different day, but the same action.
