He'll get the hot seat for a few minutes in the finals.

I didn't say he would win it. But I bet he will impress some 'doubters'..........

The naaah prt was me disagreeing I don't think he will be in the hot seat at all and I don't think he will impress me because yes, right now I am a doubter

Its your opinion. I wouldn't put any money on Palmer, but its sure cool to see him back racing. Its a forum thread ya know, feelings can get hurt. Not mine.

It's fine to doubt man and he's not saying that he'll win the races. He loves our sport and is back in it because it's fun and he's got a great chance to make the USA Boardercross team for the Olympics next year in Vancouver BC. He was a top qualifier 4 years ago, but tore his achillies(?) tendon in a race leading up to the Olympics.

Enjoy the fact that he's here to show our sport some love and that folks are excited too.

Its just cool to enjoy your 40's. Ask anyone over 40. 40's are the new 20's.........Lance Armstrong is a great example.

Armstrong is beast, especially for his age and how well he is doing in the tour. But a lot of Euro's hate him, haha.
