Elite Team Previews- A Super Serious Feature Stolen From Fasterskier:
This Week: Team Homegrown
Amongst your coaches, who wins in a fight and why?
Dan Weiland is naturally a pansy, so simply because of Eric Pepper’s beard and willingness to wear spandex shorts to rollerski training, Pepper would win.
If you were renaming your team based on collective spirit animals, what would you call yourselves::
Sleetah (n.): the cross between a sloth and cheetah. An animal that can give birth from a tree limb successfully and outrun any Von-sprinter.
How much can you bench press?
Personally I can bench press Tad on my left and Noah’s ass on my right.
Member of your team with best personal grooming habits:
I would have said Freebird ’till he went and chased tail to Maine, but probably Tad. He looks and smells like Jessie from Full House every night before he hits the sack.
What wave of the Birkie will you be starting out of?
Ever since we had…ahemmmmm…Tad win, I heard SSCV Team HomeGrown gets elite wave starts for life.
How many hours of cat-ski training are you employing daily?
Recently Noah, Tad, Ryan and I have been implementing a strict kick with a late single stride pole lunge on every fourth left leg back stroke on the cat-skis. It’s a new technique from Cat-Skis and HomeGrown is always down to experiment.
Anything extra to add?
While everybody knows that Ryan Scott is a God at playing the piano, no one knows that The Hoff can floss with two fingers.
