hilarious news segment about our team

Yesterday when the St. Anne's kids came up to Winter Park to watch us race in the super G (in which I crashed halfway down and DNF'd, by the way), the Denver NBC affiliate was up to shoot a story, which aired last night. Here's a link to a Windows Media file of the segment, which I found to embody every clichéd thing ever said about disabled skiing ("So inspirational!"). It's local-news feel-good telejournalism at its finest.

By the way, the guy who crashes in that clip is a Winter Park Disabled Ski Team kid named John Knudsen. It's a particularly awesome crash, and he ended up being fine, so don't feel bad about going through it frame-by-frame a couple times. I did.
