Who ISN'T a gimp?
Man, seems like there are a lot of us currently on the injured reserve list. Just off the top of my head, I can think of:
Myself, frozen, MD9, GT40, Max Gosey, Kellie, Tyrone, Altagirl, Sandytheskier..."There is a hell of a huge difference between skiing as a sport- or even as a lifestyle- and skiing as an industry"

But I'll be un-gimped in a mere couple of weeks! (Well at least I'll be starting to ski groomers and such...)"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "Wow, what a Ride!"

Me too! Going to the Doc tomorrow to get the results of my MRI on my left knee. Hope it's good news!"If there's a Starbucks, then you're probably fine."

I'm sitting here with a cast on my left hand due to a rather unfriendly encounter with slush pile at high speed. Prognosis is a broken metacarpal and a partially torn tendon. Luckily, I don't need surgery, but I have to wear this cast for a month, then rehab the thumb.
Do you know how hard it is to do stuff without an opposable thumb?!?Of all the muthafuckas on earth, you the muthafuckest.

GOOD NEWS! I just discussed my MRI with my doc and I have a bone bruise. No tissue damage or torn ligaments. Wow that makes me feel good. I won't be bashing any bumps or hucking any cliffs, but I will be skiing. We'll see how it feels this weekend!"If there's a Starbucks, then you're probably fine."

I'm not, but I have the potential to become one any day in abot 2 or 3 hours if a stupid piece of vegetable I didn't chew well enough gets stuck halfway down my system.You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig.

Well, the back x-rays came back negative, which I suppose is a good thing. Waiting on Doc to see if he's going to order an MRI...We've got to pause and ask ourselves: How much clean air do we need? ~ Lee Iacocca

I became a gimp shortly after discovering this board. I've had plenty of opportunity to post and lurk and such, now I really look forward to the opportunity to meet some of you out on the mountain, and someday actually post some stoke and participate here in a non gimp manner. I have to say, though that this virtual place has really helped the healing process. Maggot Gimps RULE!"If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball!"
