Now that YouTube exists there is no longer a need for a subscription to O.S.Q. (Obscure Sports Quarterly)

I thought I'd seen it all but that freestyle canoeing....wow. You really have to be special bore to get involved with that! Reminded me of the tree hugger convention in Cannonball Run

When I lived in Fort Collins I was big into bull riding and skeet shooting until my back got messed up and had to stop.

I was dating a punk rocker who worked at the western sizzlin at the time and they were all in to it. I eventually married the punk rocker chic but we gave up the other stuff. The part about marrying the punk rocker is true

You know what ? I was just sitting here thinking that I really need to do something with my life. Now that I saw the guy dancing to " Lady In Red " in that green freakin' canoe I think I'm just gonna play it safe and be a bum.

RC Battleship combat, looks kind of fun but I'd probably go with a bigger ship and heavier firepower.

Some of us guys from the VFW get together on the weekends to earn a few extra bucks and perform at local restaurants and bars.

In the past few months, we have done Red Lobster, Shoney's, Billy Bob's Dry Cleaners, Mango's Assisted Living & Loving, Sheena's Tattoo Lounge, and a Subway.

I go by "Rob" in the industry in order to protect my identity. In this one (at Modessa's Arts & Crafts), I am the "construction guy w/yellow hardhat).

NOTE: That's BIG Al aka: Dum @ 3:25 in the black hat, sunglasses and somewhat small blue Speedo dancing to his favorite - "It's Getting Hot In Here"!

Enjoy ...


Regards,
