Crazy Austrian

Remember the "Crazy Ivan" maneuver from The Hunt for Red October?

Here's how to do a slight variation, the "Crazy Austrian":

1) Alpentour the Hahnenkamm with a bunch of Austrians. At night.

2) Stop in at the KSC Clubhouse at the very top (which also doubles as the Starthaus for the biggest race in the world) for cocktails:

3) Knock back a few beers and a glass or two of KSC's private label wine:

Served, of course, in a KSC wine glass:

4) Ski next door to the Hockech Hutte for dinner (sorry, no pikkies of that)

5) About the time the wait staff of Hockech Hutte throws your ass out, click into your bindings and schuss down The Hahnenkamm, one of the steepest, gnarliest in-bounds ski mountains in the world, around midnight.....by the light of your headlamp (Gotta get video of that sometime!).

Never mind 'bout all that skiing stuff-
Tell us about the owner of those hands behind the wine glass.

(Or have you been doing your dishes in Palmolive?)
