I posted it in the Death Pool thread. That makes 2, Heath Ledger and Randy Salerno. It always comes in 3s.

Yeah, I worry about that every time I go up there. There are deaths every year up there because of people getting hammered and riding. Thing is... there are so many bars up there its the norm for people to bar hop on the sled. I know they have a speed limit at night now but I can tell you I haven't seen one cop other there enforcing it at night. I saw one cop on a sled during the day clocking sleds.

Not to offend or desecrate the issue, but a news anchor and a hollywood star are completely different. It is my opinion that Randy Salerno's death doesn't count in the dead pool.

RIP Randy Salerno

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

PRetty much the same thing that happens every year with most sled deaths. Retards riding them drunk. Thing that sucks about the night speed limit is now the asshats who normally would had been out at night are now out during the day riding like morons. I had one fucktard pass me doing around 100 WITHIN 18" of my sled doing 40 in the daytime. One reason I wont buy another one.

RIP Randy

I was just talking to Ray from US99 on the phone and he was suppose to meet with Randy tonight at some elephant named place up there I think, can't remember the name of it.

so those that are wondering I am talking to Ray because trying to see if he is interested in my parents' 1977 Artic Cat Panther 5000 that they wouldn't mind getting rid of.

Hit a stump on throttle doing about 50. After I landed about 25 yards from the mayhem I realized I busted my leg and tin-canned Butch's sled. Damn that hurt! I will be a man too and admit it was ALL rider error, although I am not sure if it was target fixation or lack of concentration, I really didnt think that outside ski was gonna catch that stump...............DOH!

Fair enough. Two more real celebrity deaths coming soon. Mark my words.
