Default RIP Scotty Goodale

Just saw this story. Apparently Scotty Goodale hit a tree and died at a resort. I guess I always expect to hear about someone who's riding outside of their abilities dying from something like this, but when it's a pro it really makes me think about how far away death really is.

Former Option Snowboards pro Scotty Goodale dies after hitting tree at Eldora Mountain Resort, Colo. - ESPN

It's never a good thing when someone dies (um, maybe Ted Bundy), but at least he died doing what he loved. Sure as hell better than being eaten from the inside, or falling apart a bit at a time.

I want to die of a heart attack in the middle of a 40-foot jump. And if I find myself on a 40-foot jump, I'll probably get my wish

The last sentence in that article is ultra-depressing. RIP.

Truly tragic to leave behind a baby on the way. I hope the family has enough support.

If you ever met Scotty you know how awesome of a guy he was. Going to miss him as the Stepchild Rep.

Sad event. Dying at that age by any means is terrible. I hope his family has a lot of support. I lost a friend skydiving when his wife was 3 months pregnant. It can happen at any time in the sports we love.
