  • McConkey dies in Italy

    http://sports.yahoo.com/ski/news?slu...v=ap&type=lgns

    Shane McConkey died in a film stunt gone awry today. I know it's not Alaska stuff but I've been watching his base jumps for several years and it was very impressive.

    Sad news. The only people that can be held in the same regard as McConkey for revolutionizing big mountain skiing would be Coombs, Plake, and Morrison. He was a giant.

        what's really sad is the 3 year old daughter that gets to grow up without a dad....sorry, but it is selfish to be doing such extreme stuff like that (where is death is a very possible event) when you have kids.
