Talkin’ SportsWith Pat

Last week former downhill skier Bill Johnson passed away at the age of 55. In 1984 he became the first American man to win an Olympic gold medal in the downhill ski event. Because of a severe head injury from a skiing crash in 2001. Johnson after his victory in 1984, got married, and they had three children. He won two World Cup events, but then everything started going downhill. Not in just skiing with injuries, but with fighting with coaches, a son passing away drowning in a hot tube. Then a divorce. Losing money and the people around him he decided to go back into competitive skiing when the crash happened and his life went, no pun intended, downhill with a brain injury. He was the first American that I remember going balls to the wall in the downhill and beating not only the world but also Phil and Steve Mahre, who also won medals in 84. So sad that he passed at a young age and lived his life like his skiing all out.

Three hours of mind-blowing sex later, Marcus Brookhein walks out of the boardroom feeling like he just lost. That doesn’t sit with someone who lives and breathes competition. Next time, he’s making the rules. Starting by getting her assigned to work side by side with him.
Abby is desperate not to repeat a night of pleasure that left cracks in her carefully constructed defenses. But four long weeks of close proximity loom before her. And Marcus has a lot …
