    RIP Sarah Burke...

    So sad. (September 3, 1982 - January 19, 2012)

    Burke passed away on January 19 2012, from complications after her accident on Park City Mountain Resort Eagle superpipe in Park City, Utah


    So young, so beautiful, such a bright future ahead of her. RIP

    Terrible news. She was one of the best freestyle skiers in the sport and will be missed. A sad day in the skiing world.

    Looks like the Olympic Committee knew what they were talking about in the first place.

    They were trying to cut women's skiing. Burke fought hard to have them keep it.

    Now she is dead because of it.

    Very ironic.

    RIP Sarah.
    A beautiful woman, a great athlete, a pioneer in her sport and from all the interviews I've heard today she was a wonderful person to talk to and to know.
    My condolences go out to her family.

    Makeup fellas. She's not very pretty...at all. Sucks to see someone die, though. Life. What a bitch.

    I'm not against you trying to make a joke, but it seems like you're actually serious here... she was fighting to have it included in the Olympics in the first place, and most certainly would have continued either way. Plenty of venues in existence to compete in this sport.


    Truly sad stuff.

    No what's ironic, is both of you assholes making such fuk'in douchbag statements. The Olympic Committee was never going to cut womens skiing. Sarah lobbied to have womens freestyle included because the men already had it. She just wanted equal opportunity for the women competitors in her sport. And she died from a fall doing what she loved, not because she was a woman skier.

    Any she was a very beautiful woman! If you can't say something respectful and be mindful that a family just lost their daughter, a husband just lost his wife, and the skiing community lost a great ambassador for the sport, do us all a favor and just shut the fuk up!

    Babe Canadian skier Sarah Burke dead of danger addiction as bad as overeating?

    Every damn day in the news you hear of someone prominent dying like adventurists dying climbing Mt.Everest,Mt.Hood,rock climbing in Utah,Sarah Burke skiing, Dan Weldon getting killed Indy driving in Vegas.All this extreme game crap is bad for your health and it cuts your life span in half.Just think of what people doing all this stuff will cost the tax payer when Obama care kicks in.So where is Michelle ''Aunt Esther''Obama when it comes to bitching about all this unhealthy lifestyle scolding and lecturing??????I guess her and all her fascist anti Twinky and Big Mac ilk take a powder on this stuff just as they do for not lecturing that if you are gay it's bad for your health and cuts your life span.Hypocrites!!!!!
