Photobucket

Autographies! These double-sided posters feat E-Stones photos are fresh Words and photos by Sean Kerrick Sullivan MFM x FODT’s “The Arena” premiered in SLC last weekend at the University of Utah to an overflow of over 500 rabid snowboard fans. Consider this: last week, “The Arena” world premiered at the Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO. Both the Fox and Boulder are known for partying, and well, the University of Utah discourages such practices on its campus, instead pointing revelers downtown to enjoy mini shots and 3.2% beers. Nonetheless, the house was packed, and for once, an all ages audience was able to enjoy a premiere without out fear of an out of control Derek Dennison spilling a pitcher of beer on a toddler. (jk Derek, take it easy) Even filmer/producer/T9 Team Manager, Cole Taylor brought his daughter Mia to check out the scene.Photobucket You sir, moose’t have the tallest t I’ve seen tonight Photobucket We heard thru the grapevine there was a t-9 tattoo in the house, and there was, and he got a ton a free gear. Word. Photobucket Dylan Thompson throwing some schwag to the fans As expected, the crew rolled out and showered the crowd with free product, signed autographs and premiered their movie that’s harder than a bag of frozen granite. With an afterparty @ SLC’s notorious Jackalope, the night was a good one, as the photos, or lack thereof will attest. Photobucket Dance off for a new snowboard.
