Celine Dion and Waterskiing

If you are of a certain age, you had to deal with a year...say 1998 ish, when this damn song would just not go away.  "My heart will go on" was everywhere and good lord would people not shut up about Titanic, which, as it turns out wasn't a 1/2 bad movie, but, gahhh...lets not talk about it anymore.  But, yet, here we are.


Then again, maybe we should be looking in the mirror, because, 1998 was not the best for music.  Just look at this list   WOOF

Shania Twain, Savage Garden, Third Eye Blind, Will Smiff....sheesh.  Of course, Tubthumping was that year, so, maybe its not a total loss.

ANYWAYS.

If we had known then, what we do now maybe we would have thought a little different about Celine..

Because, turns out, like most of us, she enjoys waterskiing!!

Lets fire up the way back machine and go to../twittle knobs / bleep blorp / 1985!





Yo! There is our girl at the 3:00 mark looking like a young Camille Duvall atacking that ramp!

Just imagine, 1985 would have made Celine about 17 or so years old.  If it wasn't for her pesky singing voice we could have had a world champ on our hands!  Celine Dion vs. Regina Jaquess compete, HEAD TO HEAD at this years LA NIGHT JAM!  WHOA.

Well, that would require a bit of bending the time space continum, but, we've seen back to the future and know all about flux capacitors, so, lets do the damn thing!

In the years in between, Celine made about 50 zillion dollars singing songs and one would think, maybe, she gave up the sport of waterskiing to drink tea and sing songs and swim around in piles of money like Scrooge McDuck.

But, NO, you are wrong sir!



Is that not the most generically white bread thing you have seen?? But thats our girl cruising around on a pair of skis and then, whatever, getting into a cage and being craned over onto a stage with astro turf. Because THATS WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN.

So, now that we have this knowledge, does that change anything about how you think of Celine Dion?

It sure does for us.  But, what say you Celine??


Damn Right!
