News Bites: The March 13, 2015 Edition

(3/13/2015)

Russian snowmobiler gets sucked into track. Drinks Vodka.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong when a Russian attemps to bumper-drag from a snowmobile?

Nothing unusual about a runaway snowmobile careening down a Newfoundland highway for 12 kilometers. Note: The best part is listening to the audio of guys in the car.

If you're goint to steal a snowmobile, make sure you wear waterproof, breathable and taser-proof snowmobile gear.

Man steals cigarettes, snowmobile-mounted cops catch him. (I'm wondering how a smoker ran 6km through the snow?)

From the why-snowmobilers-are-the-greatest file: Kid's snowmobile is stolen, group replaces it with a new one. Awesome!

Thank you to all the snowmobile club members! Stories like this explain why you are the absolute backbone of the sport.

News Bits 1-14-15: You Can't Make Up This Stuff

(1/14/2015)

Pathetic or hilarious? You decided. Then guess whether the dude’s B.A.C. is over .30. 

Arctic Cat and Tucker Hibbert deliver a Make-A-Wish dream-come-true for a boy battling leukemia. This is so cool!

There is absolutely no reason to add the words “Had Drugs” on this headline about a snowmobiler. Of course the guy was on drugs.

Another item flagged for its headline...a clever word play that pokes fun at you and I.

What it’s like to plunge 3,000 feet down a mountain, into a ravine, then suffer 32 hours believing you would die? An absolutely harrowing story, and a reminder to never snowmobile alone.

I will admit that I always wanted to snowmobile on my high school’s football field. Some goons actually follow through with such wishes.
