Anyone planning on watching? Last night was the first night and wow there were some things to remember. Like Jake Brown's slam during Big Air. Holy crap. I honestly don't know how he got up and walked away from that. For those of you who missed it.. youtube comes to the rescue.


Moto-X best trick was also last night. A first timer took the gold. I can't wait for Sunday. That's when Shaun White's going to be competing in the Vert comp.

That fall was sickening. I caught it on ESPN 2 this afternoon. If I'd been eating lunch, I would have lost my appetite.

Scary! amazing he walked away so easily.
I just talked to my bro and he said he was there. He said it was amazing that he didnt break anything... which was obvious from the tape as well, but i guess being there and close is just even more horrifying.

Yeah I was just in shock when I saw it happen last night. Emotions were so high from him landing the 720 that I was standing on my couch, then when he crashed I just sunk down. I honestly thought I just saw someone die on live TV.

Woah I couldn't even imagine being there in attendance for it. That would have been extremely freaky. Tell your bro to take soem photos of Shaun White on sunday if he's going that day too. :P

He most likely will have the photos.. he covers it for his job and he just dropped 10k on new camera equiptment so he told me many more pics to come with all his interviews and excursions and jobs. I will post them when he posts them

I'm not really a fan of the X-Games anymore. I use to like it when it first started but I think it's so much of the same stuff that I find it kind of boring now.

I'm actually a bigger fan of Winter X, but so far X13 has been pretty solid.

And nothing was broken! Just a bruised liver and lung. Pretty damn lucky. I wonder if he's seen the tapes of the fall yet? Last night a BMXer almost did the same thing, except he was able to land on the crash pads on the top of the QP.

Hellcat...

my bro posted his photos of Brown in mid air and getting up... and the first thing on his website is some other video of some less dramatic falls... but still fun to watch. Hopefully as the games continue he will update more, but check it out!

Yeah it did end today but ..... I didnt see it either. I looked on ESPN and ESPN2 but I didnt see anything for it. I also checked some other channels that it might be on but i didnt see it there either. So I dont know. :(

Then again I thought it started at like 9 or so.

Yeah it's only 4 days. It definitely goes by way too quickly. Tonight at 1am there's X Center. They'll do a recap of today's events and maybe show the interview with Jake Brown again.
