We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The golf gallery is supposed to remain quiet so that the golfer's concentration isn't distracted by extraneous noise. It there similar etiquette for the freestyle canoe gallery? An odd noise from the gallery could really ruin the canoeist's stroke. :)
Brings back memories of 3-5 day canoe trips with friends- no adults along- when I was a child.
Are you kidding me? We used to do that stuff at 12 without the musical accompaniment but with being pelted (and pelting others) with mudballs, pop bottles and anything else we could find. Let's see how he does with a water snake tossed into his canoe and getting whacked with paddle splashes every time he turns around.
That's bizarre. I was incredulous at first, then embarrassed for the guy, then I realized that what he was doing took some skill and practice to balance sideways at the water level and not sink, but I still couldn't stop laughing. It's amazing that there's actually an audience for this.
It would be fine to just tool around in a canoe and try to balance and spin and weave and stuff, but the music and audience and tuxedo was too much. What the heck?
Unlike the dislikes listed above I enjoyed the man`s presentation. I`d wagger that it took a lot of practice to be able to present that. He also has very good taste in music choosing Lady In Red as his theme. It is one of my all time favourite songs and it fit what he was doing like a glove.
