Cool to see it on tape tho. hahah hope all goes well for the rest of your season.
Yeah, things were getting icy as it got into the afternoon and things got shaded. I should have know better. Yikes, your injury sounds much worse, glad you're okay also. One of the first things I said in recovery was "I hope I got video of that" Thanks!

Thanks! Yeah, I definitely think it must have knocked the wind out of me pretty good (I think I even wheezed "ow, my head"). I did get lucky and didn't have any vomiting.

Bummer, glad you recovered though. I've had an incident with a rainbow box too, but luckily mine just resulted in severe butt bruises. Thanks!

I like how I can here you at the end of the video saying "no I'm good..." reminds me of the following
Haha, thanks lonerider, that vid made me laugh! I definitely need to be cautious as well, I'm actually 35.
