I lied yesterday.

I came in for a break yesterday - a bit of a snack and a tug more of downhaul - and saw an older gentleman leaving with whom I'd been talking to while rigging. He'd said he really hadn't seen windsurfers at Old Fed before and was looking forward to it.

Me: Hey, did you see us out there?
Him: Yes, you all were really going pretty fast. Were you out there?
Me: Yes, I just came in for a moment. (I was opening my car door wearing a wetsuit)
Him: One guy really looked pretty good out there. He had an orange sail.
Me, thinking to my self: Well, my sail is red with orange trim, Hamdi's is orange and white and Barrett has an orange Ezzy
Him: It was orange with a small black spot on it.
Me, thinking to myself again: Yeah, that sounds like Barrett
Me, out loud: Oh, that was me!

Was it this guy? If it was, you are going to on TV very soon. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allen_Funt

Naw, I'm like the people on this flight

Quote:
On February 3, 1969, Funt, his wife, and his two youngest children boarded Eastern Airlines Flight 7 in Newark, New Jersey with a destination of Miami, Florida. While en route, two men hijacked the plane and demanded passage to Cuba. However, some of the passengers, having spotted Funt, believed the whole thing to be a Candid Camera stunt. Funt repeatedly attempted to persuade his fellow passengers as to the reality of the hijacking, but to no avail. The plane later landed in Cuba, finally convincing the passengers. Funt and others were later released after 11 hours of being held captive.

When people at Old Fed start speaking Spanish, I'll be convinced. Wait... uh oh. Shok
