The Inaugural Injured Tony Award

Congratulations to Alison Stailey for dominating the injured Tony visitation competition, proving she's a better friend than Ken Schwerd, Andy Row, and especially Sean Shadid (who thinks he deserves a thank you card for texting me).

Alison has gone above and beyond the duty of a friend. Not only did she drop by to say hello on more occasions than anyone else, she also ran both Brooke and Spunky. She is most deserving of this coveted trophy. However, she probably didn't deserve a picture of me and my blood blistered toes on the Internet.

As you can see, the trophy is extremely shiny and sparkles day and night. You can also see I'm low on water in my water jug and that I need to throw away a cardboard box.

Of course, the award is only for the 2009 - 2010 season. Much to my parents' and wife's dismay, I plan on continuing to snowboard at the expert level as long as possible.

There's always that chance we'll need a new trophy for a new season. I just need to figure out if it's better to re-injury the right ankle or to try for the left next time.

Finally, for those of you surprised that I made a custom trophy for my stupid injury, this isn't my first trophy rodeo. I live nearby a trophy shop. I think this is the seventh trophy I've made so far.


  1. I'm happy to see Alison win. I think all your friends should have at least gotten an honorable mention.
    Next season you should give the local hospitals a copy of your medical record,x-rays and the dates you will be there. That way when another tree jumps in front of you they are prepared. Dad

  2. Solid win by Alison. That's awesome that you make trophies on a regular basis - I'm going to have to take "proximity to a trophy shop" into consideration the next time I move...
