No, seriously, Klammer is probably one of the best downhill skiers of all time, but Stenmark and Maier in their prime were from another planet.

I would like to second Schmidt. Kinda surprised his name was not already mentioned. He shunned his racing background to take his 220 dh planks up to start dropping the Palisades at a time when only speed skiers were up there practicing speed runs.

Hmmm....put any of the greatest of the great skiers of their time on planks of today and combined that with the knowledge of the previous generations accomplishments and you will see them take the sport to the next level. How can you compair the greatest skier of today to the greatest skier of yesterday?

Considering that I body slammed the earth and created all mountains, I need to vote for myself. By merely starring at the snow, it gets so scared that it rips away in Class Five avalanches. My skis are two giant sequoias which I felled by karate chops alone. I straightline eighty degree slopes. I am also the only person ever to make Seth Morrison cry. All I had to do was rub my beard and he cowered in fear.

Just ask yourself? Could Billy Jack wrestle a doughnut away from Rossie O'Donnell? I did and let me tell you it was harder than concurrently rescuing hostages from an airplane (see, e.g., Delta Force) and fighting King Kong and Godzilla, which I might add resulted it both of them getting roundhoused.

We once tried to share a pizza. I ate an extra slice. She challenged me to a fight, I gave her a roundhouse kick. The force of her girth hitting the ground caused Mt. St. Helens to erupt.

Chuck Norris is correct. I once saw Chuck Norris ski base jump the Matterhorn without a parachute or skis. He decended, beard first, into Zermatt village landing in a Papperla Pub pint glass. I believe he then impregnated the entire town and cross-country skied to Chamonix in 12 minutes.

That is top secret Delta Force material. Do you have the requisite clearance? Were you one of the offspring from the multitude of Swiss women I have impregnated?
