...I busted my eye up really bad. Got blind sided by another guy which forced me to hit a tree... :(

My whole left eye is swollen shut, and underneath my eye lidI have a huge gash. Also tore a bunch of skin off my forehead. I will see if I can't get a picture or too. Im going to recoop for a bit though.

Hahaha, hope it heals without injury to your vision. And the skin off your forehead.. That's gross.

Guess you arent Mr.Untouchabe after-all :p

That really sucks, but consider yourself lucky, last weekend here, there where three fatal ski accidents, all on the runs, not backcountry or anything, just BAM and they were dead

actually it wasnt my first time, but the guy who hit me was on his second run ever...

When the swelling goes down.. you should prolly get it x-rayed especially if it hurts after the swelling goes down. Hopefully you didn't break your eye socket bone thingy.. idk what it is called.

orbital, I have crushed mine on one side.

Thats sucks, also having the oakleys crushed must suck to. Thats what $100 for another pair.

Hope you heal quickly...I feel for ya, been there too many times, had a Noob blindside me one time and I ended up with a dislocated hip. At least you got a cool scar out of it and maybe a tough nickname...something other than thunk or thud hopefully:D
