And a proper sendoff for Wally'o was had. If anyone is interested, there is a GoFundMe set up for his daughter. Someone else can share the link.

Tri-State / Bi-State / The Lake Michigan TransBender, the Threeway Regatte, The Ole' Michigan Mistake...

 

I think it was the 2001 race where the abandoned the first leg. Some of us went anyways. And a fun ride it was...  I remember one of the excuses I heard (3rd party) was that the RC boat couldn't hold an anchor... Well, I'm not sure if that was the official statement, but if it was, it would have been a poo® excuse in my book.

 

Well, let's see if the suns out this Friday, if so, we might be staying home... If there's a storm nearby, they'll send us out to the starting area, then not show up, and abandon the race via radio right as the storm is passing through and the sun is setting behind the skyline. 

 

You know what they say, red sky at night, go fuck yourself..

Don Rickles? Oh I remember... In fact, I was boarding a plane, standing there in first class queued up like a fucking idiot with my roller-board in hand and my laptop case over my shoulder, heading for my wonderfully appointed couch seat. I look over to my left at the man seated in the big comfy 1st class lounger ; it Don Rickles. So I'm trying to place the face, you know like a fucking moron, I'm thinking I know this guy. Typical Blubberboy situation. 'This guy looks familiar, how the hell do I know this guy...'  Then it dawn on me, I don't know this guy, it's Don Rickles. Meanwhile, he's been watching me, staring at him, trying to figure out who he is. All the while he's giving me this hard stare. The line starts moving, he's still giving me the stink eye, and I simply say to him as I'm breaking eye contact, ' I know, I know, I'm a  fucking Hockey Puck...' He quickly snaps back, ' You go that right!' 

 

Love that man!
