Vlad the Impailer

post #1 of 80

Does anyone really know who Vlad is?

He seems to have been everywhere, knows about everyone, and replys to every thread with uncanny acuracy.

Is there anything this person doesn't know?

I'm impressed but who are you really Vlad?

to wit:
again, as i've said, there are a few bears whom i've met, one long-time bear with whom i skied , trained, hitched, partied and taught in the 80s, etc., who will vouch for my existence readily.
i'm not making anything up.
just have some extra time on my hands these past couple years, due to severe illness.
just another ski-tard, fortunate enough to have been born into an old ski family.like i say, contact jeff bergereon at boot fixations (contact him through this board if you like) in summit county if you doubt my existence or claims...please.
next.....

Hi. Yes, I'm next.

I loved you in Conan the Barbarian and was wondering if you and Arnold are still tight? And is he the Sun Valley bomber he claims to be? I'm starting a Vlad the Impaler appreciation website and hope you'll sign the log book when we're up and running.

Keep it up, you WILL have your own show someday.

yes- you, there- in the second row.
yes, arnold and i are still chums, we frequently break into lou ferrigno's house and turn on his TV, stereo, etc., fullblast, start his road king, duct-tape the throttle to WFO and beat it in arnold's custom humvee.
arnold spends more runs on baldy that papa ever thought of doing, and he even has the likeness of averill harriman tatooed across his left lower intercostal.
next?
(actually, i did live a few doors down from him at alpine meadows for a couple months. nice man, always a big "HAL-LOWWW!" from him when i walked down to 89 to hitch over to squaw)

another vlad was also the first russian pope (notable because he revelled in human scarifices and orgies in his paganic days),
and one of the finest pro skiers of the 20th century....and a really good guy who treated was a real gentleman.

Vlad has previously alluded to a friendship with Spider Sabich.



Here's my guess as to Vlad's true identity:



Any of you younger than about 45 will have absolutely no clue what I'm talking about.

vlad and my dad were friends. vlad was damned nice to me, never behaved like a "pro" or a "star", just a very warm, funny, always joking guy. i mean always laughing and joking around, but careful never to insult anyone intentionally. damn nice guy to us kids.

Wow, vlad=claudine????

That make the naked hot tubbing w/ Suzy Chaffee story a whole lot more interesting.

Sabich started skiing at the age of 5. By her best guess, Frances Sabich figures her three children -- Mary, Spider and Steve -- broke at least 15 bones combined.

"We had someone in a cast every winter," said Frances, who lives with her husband, Vladimir, in Colusa, Calif.

The son of Croatian immigrants, Vladimir Sabich flew B-25 bombers for the U.S. in World War II and spent a year in a Siberian camp after being shot down over the northern part of Japan.

The Soviets allowed him to escape once they declared war on Japan, and he returned to Sacramento, Calif. In 1945 the Sabiches named their first son Vladimir, but he was never known by anything other than Spider.

"He was a long baby, but he had no flesh on him," Vladimir said. "He was all skin and bones. I said, 'Geez, he looks like a spider."'

Vladimir and Frances moved from Sacramento to Kyburz in 1950. The handful of kids who attended Silver Fork Elementary -- a one-room schoolhouse to this day -- went to class in the summer and skied in the winter. The Sabich children competed for the Red Hornet team at Edelweiss, a popular hill that closed down in the early 1960s.

Sabich left the U.S. ski team in 1970 to join Beattie's pro circuit. He was the perfect ambassador -- photogenic, colorful and articulate. He was also unbeatable, or so it seemed in 1971 and 1972, when he achieved his greatest results.

The competition wasn't as strong as it was on the World Cup circuit, but Sabich finished first in the first pro race he entered and won nine of 18 events in 1972. He earned $50,600 that year, when his combined income from prize winnings and endorsements exceeded $150,000.

One of those 1972 wins came at Bear Valley, the Alpine County resort where Sabich met Longet. Women found Sabich irresistible, and the French-born entertainer was no exception.

"Spider was a babe magnet," Steve Sabich said. "Just catching his overflow was fine with me."

Dede Brinkman, a longtime friend who has lived in Aspen since 1970, explains the attraction she and other women felt toward Sabich.

"He was so charming and very sexy," Brinkman said. "It was the same type of charisma you see in movie stars."

Sabich moved from Boulder to the Aspen area in 1971. The home that Steve Sabich built for his brother at a cost of $90,000 in neighboring Starwood is now worth approximately $3 million. The beams came from an old aerial tramway the brothers tore down.

Those were heady times, what with the view, the skiing and the nightlife. Kidd and several of Sabich's contemporaries downplay his widespread reputation as a partier, but his brother doesn't.

"Spider smoke, drank and did whatever all of us did," he said. "Let's not forget, those were the '60s and '70s. But I also remember grabbing a bunch of poles and setting up courses when there wasn't anyone else on the mountain at Snowmass. He'd do his 25 runs. A lot of people who'd see Spider out partying didn't see him doing those 25 runs. He was serious about his training."

I know this isn't *really* funny (in a PC sort of way), but it was one of the best Saturday Night Live skits ever:




Season 1: Episode 18








The Claudine Longet Invitational
..written by: Michael O'Donoghue

Tom Tryman.....Chevy Chase
Jessica Antlerdance.....Jane Curtin
Tom Tryman: Good afternoon, this is Tom Tryman!

Jessica Antlerdance: And this is Jessica Antlerdance!

Tom Tryman: And, of course, we're here in Vale, Colorado, to cover the Claudine Longet Invitational! This is, of course, a men's freestyle skiing competition!

Jessica Antlerdance: So, without further ado, let's go to the slopes. Well, we certainly have a beautiful day for it, Tom.

Tom Tryman: Right you are, Jessica. And, of course, first out will be Helmut Kindle. Helmut is a 24-year-old Frenchman - I'm sorry, he's a West German. And this is his second run of the day, I believe. He had an initial time of 41.8. Looking very good here.

Jessica Antlerdance: That's right, Tom. But Helmut injured his ankle last month, and that's bound to affect his performance here today.

Tom Tryman: He caught an edge there, but he seems to be okay, he's in good shape.. actually, I think he's a little..

[ a shot rings out, as Helmut falls into the snow ]

Tom Tryman: Uh-oh! He seems to have been accidentally shot by Claudine Longet! Yes.. and I'm afraid Helmut Kindle is out of this race!

Jessica Antlerdance: Yes, it's a shame, but that's all part of the exciting world of professional skiing, Tom.

Tom Tryman: Well, he definitely seems out of it, Jessica, and I couldn't agree more. Now, here comes the man to beat - we're going to be seeing him in a second. Of course, Jean-Paul Baptiste. A 28-year-old civil engineer from Verne, Switzerland. And he's strong, he's agile, he's got a great deal of power, Jessica.

Jessica Antlerdance: He'll need all the power he's got on those mobiles, Tom.

Tom Tryman: Look at the way his legs absorb those shocks, as he manuevers his way down this bumpy terrain. There's a very nice move there, a lot of spring, he's really playing this hill.

Jessica Antlerdance: It's easy to see why he won a Bronze Medal in Innsbrook. He's a strong skiier, and a fierce competitor.

Tom Tryman: Mmm-hmm! Well, I would have to say, it's a very fast time up to this point. Uh.. he's doing very well - and there's a very nice move - uh.. I would say, at this halfway point, he's gonig to take third, or maybe even a second-place..

[ a shot rings out, as Jean-Paul falls into the snow ]

Tom Tryman: Uh-oh! Uh-oh! It looks to me like he's been accidentally shot by Claudine Longet!

[ Jean-Paul regains balance on his skis ]

Jessica Antlerdance: Just grazed, I think, Tom..

[ second shot rings, as Jean-Paul falls back into the show ]

Jessica Antlerdance: Oh, no! That one got him, he's down! No, he's down this time.. no, no! No, he's getting up!

[ Jean-Paul continues to ski downhill, albeit a little awkwardly ]

Jessica Antlerdance: Always the mark of a fine athlete is the ability to recover in diffivcult situations.

Tom Tryman: I can't believe he's going for the finish line.. and -

[ third shot rings out, Jean-Paul is down for good ]

Tom Tryman: Oh, no! Again.. again, he's been accidentally shot by Claudine Longet, and, this time, I think he's down to stay, Jessica.

Jessica Antlerdance: We're running a little late, Tom, so let's just cut to a few highlights of this event.

Tom Tryman: Alright, let's do that.

[ show skiier falling into the snow ]

Tom Tryman: Uh.. here, she mistakenly dropped her gun and it went off.

[ show skiier falling into the snow ]

Jessica Antlerdance: Uh.. here, she was just showing the gun to a friend.

[ show skiier falling into the snow ]

Tom Tryman: Yeah.. I think she was just cleaning her gun here, wasn't she?

[ show skiier falling into the snow ]

Tom Tryman: And, once again, of course, showing the un to a friend.

[ show skiier falling into the snow ]

Tom Tryman: Here, I think she just put the gun down in the snow, and it went off by mistake.

Jessica Antlerdance: That looked almost like skeet shooting!

[ Tom and Jessica laugh playfully ]

Tom Tryman: You must mean ski shooting!

[ Tom and Jessica laugh more sardonically ]

Tom Tryman: Oh, well. This has been Tom Tryman.

Jessica Antlerdance: And Jessica Antlerdance.

Tom Tryman: Here in Vale, Colorado, at the Claudine Longet Invitiational.

Jessica Antlerdance: Ski shooting, that's very funny! [ laughs ]
