I skied @ his last tourny several years ago now - he was pretty frail then - but still hit the water for the crowd
which every time he skied was another world record broken .........
@ the awards ceremony he auctioned a handful of items and was caught drumming with the band.
a friend of mine had lived in his FL house the last 2 winters
