Blair Morgan

15 posts in this topic

It's true that Blair suffered a severed spinal cord and will be paralized from at least the waist down permanently. Although I was never a fan of his, I was sad to hear of his misfortune. Truly a blow to the sport of snowmobiling, however I believe he will continue to lead a major role in Blair Morgan Racing which will benifit many who chose to follow in his path.

Blair apparently suffered a spinal injury (middle back) from a crash while practicing for the Montreal SuperCross at Montreal. He underwent a surgery, that went well, but it was discovered, from the vertebrae separating, that the spinal cord was severed, causing him to be paralyzed from mid-back down...

From the news report... he fractured his T-4 and T-5 vertebrae, causing the spinal cord to be severed... although with the paralysis, hes recovering and plans are being made to move him to a facility closer to home... Hes off the ventilator, fully awake and aware of everything... mental capactity is normal...

Few had said that he just got pitched off his dirt bike after doing a jump... and his teammate, Brent Turcotte, said it was something Blair usually walked away from, but not this time...

I searched his name and found some articles on the accident. That's a big reminder that your life can change in the blink of an eye.

Thats all Ski-[PoorWordUsage] could do... steal talents while Arctic Cat produced them... Arctic Cat gave Blair his chance... and he took the sport by storm... his races with Tucker Hibbert was what made legends...

Hanson... that's a beautiful poster of Blair and his Arctic Cat team...

Sure am gonna miss his famous finishes...

I dont really think you can point the finger at Ski- Doo. You are correct about Cat giving Blair the chance but there is a lot of other stuff that we don't know about behind the screens that went on. Blair being from Canada might of had something to do with him going to a company that is based in Canada. He also had a really big part in the ideal of the Rev Snowmobile for Ski-Doo. That is why they made a Blair Morgan addition in late 2003 to make sure he got credit were credit was deceived.

Either way he was what made Snowcross what it is today. Tucker did help also but Blair was there all the time!!!

    • The Schrillary reich didnt compromise Bernie? And when hasnt the biased media compromised an election in recent memory? Nick is a hack and consistently posts 2nd grade propaganda, hes sold out to the party. They've been exposed and are resorting to extremes.  They went all in with obama and got called, he had far more to do with the outcome of the elections than anything  leaked by anyone.  Now its the fake blame game, humorous to say the least.   Snowflake butthurt apparently leads to desperation.
    • Really??? Catfish is my favorite fish.
    • I suspect you haven't visited this year or seen the reports.     And, for the record, I didn't say I was catching "tons" on Mille Lacs, but it was the best lake I've visited in the last two years.  And it wasn't even close.    
    • I think Schells is Minnesota's oldest brewer, so they must be doing something right.   I know some guys from New Ulm, and they all drink Schells.   That's how I got turned onto it in the first place.  Never got burned out on it, though..
    • Sink or swim? I am sure that some of you have heard that if you put seeds in water the ones that sink are better then the ones that float. I have heard this from the old guys but I have never tried it myself. Well I found myself with some radish seeds and I decided to pour them into a cup of water and sure enough about half sunk to the bottom while the rest floated. I got out a bowl and filled it with coconut husk planting mix and put the floaters on one side and the sinkers on the other. I am now waiting to see what side comes up first or if both sides will come up at the same time.   Any comments? Has anyone else heard of this and does anyone check their seeds before planting?
    • Maybe he's just hungry............    
    • Catfish!! I haven't had that in about ten years! Dang, that looks good! 
    • All day long you sit here and demand answers from everyone else but you never answer anyone else's questions. I wonder why that is?    
    • I would guess even Fletcher would say Stall has passed all expectations. I will give credit to Fletcher for building this team from absolute zero, we had almost no skill or prospects when he took over,  sure it took longer than we wanted but right now it is worth it. No doubt luck can play a roll, most GM's don't have a Suter, Parise, Stall & BB fall into their lap but quality drafting and development are also paying big dividends right now. We also have a lot of high end prospects that can fill in for the vets in the coming years. A cup is still a long ways away but this year is probably the best NHL team the state has ever seen.
