So just the other day I was thinking to myself that I hadn’t talked to The Reez (aka Chris Riesenberger) in a quite a while and for that matter hadn’t even seen him online. We usually shoot the shit at least a couple times a week so it seemed pretty weird. I intended to send him a text “are you dead” but never got around to it. Well it turns out that he wasn’t dead but not too far from it. He ended up on the hospital right before Christmas with strep, pneumonia, and a fever of 104.9. To top it off, both of his lungs collapsed and he was put in a medically induced coma for 6 and a half days. Definitely not the way you want to spend your holidays. He’s doing better now and finally headed home yesterday. I’m real psyched that he’s ok, back home, and that I got to chat with him a bit last night. Even if you don’t know him personally, I encourage you to send some positive vibes his way. Oh yeah and if you have any Burton snowboarding equipment that you’d like to donate to him, he’d be beyond stoked! He loves that shit!
