Great article about David Wise ahead of the Olympics about his radical-skier-plus-family-man lifestyle.  Pretty interesting and there's this great quote: 

 

“There’s an image they want,” Wise said. “And I didn’t fit that for a long time. Even after I won the X Games the first time, they said: ‘We don’t know what to do with this guy. He’s different.’ My rebuttal to that is: Why do you want something that has been done before? It’s the people who are different who end up shaping the culture.”
