Having just joined the Moment team this winter, 28-year old Team Make a Mess member Jon Hartman became the oldest jibber to make a ski team since Josh Lubeck won the tryouts for the Mammoth High School ski team by throwing shirtless flairs over the actual high schoolers half his age. This lack of older gents in the professional ranks is due in large part to the fact that by age 25, most park skiers realize how stupid they look wearing a large tee shirt over their outerwear in the middle of February. We sat down with Luke Jacobson, Chief Jort Enthusiast at Moment, to get the skinny on why they would make such a horrendous mistake.
BroBomb: Can I get a blurb about the justification behind putting a 28-year old graphic designer/aging jibber on the Moment team?
Jacobson: He wouldn’t stop emailing me for 2 years…. Also, he films more than a 15 year old and loves skiing more than most people do. He is unique, real, and has so much fun its ridiculous. Thats whats important….fun and #sochi
BroBomb: Who can black out harder, you or Jon?
Jortcobson: Oh man, it really depends what season it is. And what we are drinking. I appreciate Jon for being able to hang with terrible terrible combinations of drinks, like Astronaut Piss (Fernet shot with a well tequilla back) or a Space Jam. We can both go pretty deep.
BroBomb: What about a Fernet face-off?
Jortman Luke: Fernet face-off? I honestly think I would win. Anything else I think he would take me. I’ll admit that.
BroBomb: Are there any other older jibbers you’re scouting these days?
Jortcation Jacobson: Is David Crichton 30 yet?
*Editor’s note: Did you sell all your tee shirts this winter for ski gloves or drugs? We know the answers is yes, and we also know you sold the gloves for more drugs. But it’s spring and that triple-tall sweatshirt you hand-sewed behind mom’s back ain’t gotta hold it down in the summer heat. So hop on over to the store and buy a Medium or XL BroBomb Mike Tee for only $10! Everyone’s doing it, even Satan himself!
