Official video proof of...

me shattering my earliest-ski-set-of-the-year record*

Yeah, the camerawork is a bit, shall we say, dizzying, and the skiing is barely watchable.  But Damnit, I got on the water in Mid March!  That has to count for something.

I was not the only skier to begin his season that day.

Blink and you'll miss it, but Brian skied...

and had some fun with my camera too

*Hardly an impressive feat, given that the Leprechaun left 75 degrees and sunshine in place of a pot of gold.  I did not brave the elements (save a sunburn) to start early.  That being said, I beat by early start date by 10 days, so to quote Droopy "you know what, I'm happy."

I should petition the city..

of Coralville to put one on these contraptions in their local pool.

I don't know which would be more satisfying: Practicing tricks during the dead of winter, or spraying old ladies while they fruitlessly try to keep their hair dry during water "aerobics"

Damn, I am so ready for ski season to start.
