Mark McMorris is smart, there's no doubt. It takes a certain type of mind to save a few slices after you've thrown down the cost of a small apartment on a pizza in Saas Fee - most would wolf the whole thing down, make the most of the experience. Others save a few pieces for the next day, and that's why they have more X Games medals than you.

Hold on, didn't Marky McMark have a serious crash a few months ago? One that left him with a collapsed lung and ruptured spleen, as well as jaw, left arm, pelvic and rib fractures? And that was about a year after he broke his femur? What business does he have throwing back triple 16s when the season hasn't even properly started yet?

It must have something to do with the pizza.
