X-Games Countdown

Last year, four days in Aspen saw a perfect 100 score, a five-peat, first-ever tricks and a celebration of the life of Sarah Burke. It was an emotional X-Games to say the least. Lives were celebrated and records were broken.

The world’s premier four day Winter action sports event is back, kicking off this Saturday, January 26 in Aspen, CO. This year  promises to be full of joy, sadness,  pain, but most of all progression. With the word “triple cork” flying around, we may very well witness history in the making again. Especially if snowboarding demi-god Shaun White has anything to do with it.

2012 X-Games Superpipe | Perfect Score

The word perfect should never just be thrown around. Sure tell your your mom her meat loaf is perfect, tell your girlfriend her jeans fit perfect, just don’t forget what perfect actually means.

My favorite definition of perfect states simply “being without defect or blemish”. Would a hand drag not be a “defect or blemish?” (0:26). Not to discredit Shaun, this is certainly the best run I’ve ever seen in a superpipe, but is it really perfect? A 99.95 would have certainly sufficed.

There’s always room for improvement, even if you are the best.
