  America’s reddish snowboarding hero, Shaun White, may not have won a gold but he might make up for it with his legal foresight.  White is known for his astounding skills, pulling off mind boggling tricks. But, when he was training for the 2010 games, Red Bull built him a secure snowboard halfpipe for training.  It was even made with real, genuine snow. That kind of investment coupled with White’s insatiable desire to win made him, or his attorney, take it very seriously.  White ... [click here to read more]
