Luges are pretty important when you’re going to go luge. Also, luging… (that word looks super weird) is insane. But not as insane as skeletoning! Or TWO MAN luging. That’s just… that just looks a bit too comfy.
Anyway, if you spotted someone stealing luges in East Allen Township after the fell off the back of a really crappily secured truck, help America out.
A U.S. luge team training at a local ski slope lost its sleds Friday in East Allen Township when the equipment fell out of the back of the truck and was picked up by a passerby, police report.
Members of theU.S. Luge Team Association, based out of Lake Placid, N.Y., were returning to a local hotel after a day of training at Blue Mountain Ski Area and Resort in Towamensing Township, but the box truck hauling the equipment was not properly secured, police say.
Gordy Scheer, director of marketing and and sponsorship for the U.S. Luge Association, said he hadn’t properly latched the U-Haul truck when he hooked it up in the pouring rain that night.
In the area of Airport Road near Old Carriage Road, the rear door to the truck opened and five sleds fell onto the road, according to authorities. SOURCE: The Express-Times
What does one do with a stolen luge?
You could make it into some fun furniture, I’m sure. You could put your pets on it and send it down a hill, which would be fun Youtube stuff. You could get a bunch of them and tie them together and … honestly, I have no idea.
It’s not like you can walk into a pawn shop and no one will notice.
