Dew Tour 2012

The Evolution of the Premier League

Well yes.  Its been called that before and it will be called that again at some point, but really this weekend, it did once again fulfill this tagline. I know I used this shot already, but seriously this is one of the greatest shots I have seen in football.  Just the emotion on the fansRead more

World Snowboard Champs 2012

Thats what this whole thing was about right?  A World Champion for the independent tour. You may have seen the stickers on the left before, but these on the right are pretty good.  Basically riders are asking the worlds most famous riders to stand up and say that he disproves of what FIS are doing.Read more

The US Debt Crisis

Its quite interesting that I tweeted this weekend about two things. And I got 4 retweets about the Travis Rice movie (fair play, its amazing) and the one about the US debt crisis got…… a big zero.  So obviously people are more interested in hollywood style snowboard films, and not whats happening in the economy.Read more
