R.I.P. Natasha

Unless you live under a rock, you've seen the news reports about Natasha Richardson's tragic death on the slopes. In addition to feeling desperately sad for Liam Neeson and their two cutie kids, the incident induced a bit of panic about my Tahoe trip this past weekend. Her death is a jolting reminder of the importance of safety gear.

I decided to invest in a tricked-out helmet to stave off the seemingly-innocuous-stumble-turned-cerebral-hemorrhage. While my first impression was, "wow I feel like a huge dork and I look like a storm trooper,"

Giro saved the day with the Giro G10 with built in Skullcandy. (ie speakers INSIDE the helmet to rock-out with ease) Needlesstosay, my dome was both protected and pampered - god I love technology.
