X-Games 13 Appreciation Thread

I didnt see one of these, and I think we need one! Especially because they start tonight and we need somewhere to talk about the awesomeness and tricks the riders are going to pull out. My personal favorites are moto-x best trick, which is tonight! Squee!

I am such a huge fan of the X-Games, and all my friends make fun of me cause Im a girl but I dont care Im just so excited for tonight!

A female skier was crippled in a crash . another snowmoblie jumper lost control and his machine landed away from him, but kept going into the crowd,lucky it was stopped buy crash gate.

how this snowmobile flipped over landed and kept going is crazy..

I don't cry to deaths often but this one made me cry and almost made me sick. Just a week ago I was at the edge of my seat praying he'd get up and when he walked out of there, I was so relieved and happy. To hear this just breaks my heart into so many pieces. RIP

I dont like to see anyone in any type of sport or event die or even get hurt . I never watch x games I saw the clip last week , watching him jump 3 other times and no Issues makes it sadder He was skilled and freak accident ...

The 2nd clip where the snowmobile got away, that guy was interviewed on CNN last night . I can see why he didn't want to comment on Caleb condition . He did say he was autioning off his snowmobile and other items to pay for(that was last night ) caleb medcial bills . Plus rock star was also donating mo

yeah they have a lot of funds set up online to help the family pay the bills and a nice funeral and it will be taken care of no doubt. I've watched the X Games since the beginning and I've seen injuries. I've seen people get paralyzed, i've seen broken bones, concussions, cracked heads....but they all live to see another day. Last year, Sarah Burke died (womens snowboarding pipe) in practice hitting her head, going into a coma and dying a week later. Now with this...so sad. However, I believe the courses and the sport is safe. Everyone is very well trained, the courses are scouted perfectly (The X Games released a report earlier that said they will look in to everything to make sure it's all safe). I believe this is just a freak accident and my heart is so heavy in my chest today.

Caleb's family has my condolences.

Do you think that snowmobile event needs to be taken out of the Winter X Games?
