Then the post game...
Howie came on at the half.
My "accident" experience.
I was probably still in college, on the slopes one weekend, a mature woman cried out for help, saying she hurt her ankle. I yelled to my friend to go get the ski patrol, and proceeded to cross her skis and poles as a hazard warning.
She asked me to unbuckle her boot. Leather. That and bindings must have been first generation release bindings.
Any way, a number of other skiers stopped by, and I said somebody went for the ski patrol, yadda, yadda yadda.
The woman said for me to go on, not wanting to ruin my skiing.
I started down the slope, and ran into my friend side-stepping up, getting grief for going the wrong way. He had phoned it in from a lift pole and was coming back to join me.
A couple of runs later, from the lift, we saw the ski patrol sled just starting to move her.
