1L2L (with the corresponding gang/hand signs thrown up too = 1 Life 2 Live) very easy once you learn. Danny lives this motto that we lightheartedly concocted back when I got to take Ropes Course class at Kennett with the freshman. Danny and I knew each other but got closer in the time we spent pushing each other to go big or go home. For example, I jump blindfolded on to the cargo net, Danny has to climb the wall blindfolded and be the first to do it.
This is how Danny is in my head, always striving to reach that next level and he will push you to be better and go bigger too. It’s like Danny has always lived the motto 1L2L. Reading these updates over the last few days has made me cry, I haven’t cried in years. I cried like a little child, I cannot fathom thinking of Danny being helpless at this moment. You mean there is nothing we can do??? We have to just wait and see?? Conor prob got pissed cuz the first thing I did when I saw the post was call him, probably along with 5000 other people way more important than me. So when he doesn’t pick up what do I do? text him. Sorry Conor, I was selfish but thanks for the speedy reply.
OK ENOUGH sobby shit. Recent best memory! Open Mic night Parka. It was like a high school reunion that night, I was up in NoCo just hoping to ride for the first time this season, being a flatlander now it’s tough to get home.
So I’m at the Parka nice and early, WTF…. A LINE!!!! Holy shit where are we New York? So I go in for a few and chilled ok it was time to go, on my way out the door there are like 30 people standing in that lil tiny hallway. And who do I see? The man, the myth, the legend, DCT. Now truth be told, I knew he was home, and knowing danny prob not likely to miss open mic night. So in actuality I was stalking him and just waiting to see him all night so I could feel cool talking to him.
But this can’t be….. DCT waiting in line????? DO you people KNOW who you have IN THE BUILDING??? This guy is a legend, bought to bring NoCo and the MWV some fame and notoriety. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I tried to get him to the front but he is humble, told me to ‘Chill Bra we be shreddy right here mon’ so I said PEACE see ya on the slopes.
Two seconds later at the 711 I stop by to pick up a few Tuck’s and who do I see??? The man, the myth, the legend, the shreddy times CEO himself CONOR!! And what the hell is Conor doing? Picking up a case of beer for the poor people waiting in line who just want to sip on a frosty one.
Now I almost went back to stand in that line. Chill with my homies and sip on a cold one. However, my point is this. If Danny, or Conor (they are very alike) get something not to appealing dropped in their laps, THEY MAKE THE BEST OF IT because in the end, you only get 1L2L.
Love and Prayers to all of you supporting Danny and Conor. Let’s keep up the well wishing
