The Inertia

Red Gerard made history over the weekend winning the first Olympic gold for the U.S. in these games in men’s snowboard slopestyle. As we already pointed out, the 17-year-old is a legend on and off the hill. And as it happens so is his 17-person entourage.

“I kind of know they’re always going to be there for me. And, I’d say they’ve been having some fun, yeah,” he said in a press conference after winning gold. “Excuse me, but I got a Snapchat this morning at like 8:30 when I was taking a bus up and they were all shotgunning beers on the way to the mountains. So, I’d say they’ve been having a good time, yes.”

Gerard hasn’t actually gotten his medal yet. What is he going to do when he does?


“Yea, look at it for quite some time?”




Only the best. We promise.
