    What is this interview? I have no memory of this. When did this happen?

    @horton you must have drank more of that Kilo Kai than you know.
  • ronskironski Posts: 16 Baller
    This guy is knowledgeable and makes a good ambassador for the sport......until he takes a drink....good laugh.
  • BradyBrady Posts: 1,076 Mega Baller
    @Horton. Because of all you have done for me, I was going to buy you a year supply of Kilo Kai, until watching this video! I don't think I have nearly enough money to make that happen. Sorry. BTW, while you are looking at this, I have a quick question about my fin setting.

    I just had hernia surgery. I'm not suppose to laugh. I almost fell off my chair. John you are a great ambassador to the waterskiing community. Thanks for the web cast.

    I'm a little disappointed in @Horton's gender discrimination. "All you ballers, don't forget your wifes." Should the lady ballers dump their men and get wife's too? Just looking for clarification here.

    @MS you mean Greenaland right?.. Check a map..

    I can accept Southern Canadian but Iceland is off the map.

    No Horton at Ski West last weekend, he was either at the Malibu open in Wisconsin,
    or too hung over from his video!

    @Horton, you are good. I would not be able to drink even distilled water at that pace...

    Reminded me of Gene Wilder in Blazing Saddles.

    I really enjoy the site and the information in the video was thoughtful and useful. The drinking was juvenile and disturbing.
  • HortonHorton Posts: 27,729 Administrator
    @Higleyskier I felt pretty bad the next day

    @higleyskier: I thought the "drinking" was middle aged and calming.

    @Horton -love this site and love your enthusiasm and stewardship but like it or not you have become a bit of a role model with young skiers and with great power comes great responsibility. i have pre-adults and young adults in my charge and i would hate to hate to have them think killing an entire bottle of 70 proof anything in one chug is cool. that one video moment probably just cost me some un -anticipated future discussions about the chinks in one particular semi -heros armor. bummer.

    Oh come on! Horton a role model? LMAO. Horton does have a responsibility to the advertisers so you all have this fine forum to play around on.

    @mwetskier: Just my personal opinion, but as a grampa and dad, I would think, if you have so little confidence in your charges that you doubt they can differentiate between a joke and real life, then having the discussions now would be an advantageous strategy. In fact, you owe Horton some thanks for giving you a springboard to talk proactively to the youths in your charge.

    I hear you. To be clear that was a joke -inspired by John Bulshi / Animal House. If this site was largely viewed by children it would have been clearly inappropriate.

    Nearly all readers of this site are men 35 to 55. Even so I do have mixed feelings about it. This is a joke I will not be recycling.

    Funny side note. I really was sick the next day. Yes it was a stunt bottle.
