One Hour Interview

On the Fark was a survey asking "If you could have a one hour interview with anyone, living or dead, who had to tell the truth, who would it be?"

This is a fascinating question. Think about it. really think about it.

Martin Luther King? Hitler? Kennedy? Nikola Tesla? Jenna Jameson? Who would it be?
I love this question, because, beyond all our political stuff and whatever, the ability to ask anyone an hours worth of questions that they have to answer honestly? WHEW!! Thats some amazing stuff right there.

This got us thinking at the CRB HQ, and even though its the weekend, we still are working.
We are a waterski blog though, so, lets rephrase the question slightly, "If you could have a one hour interview with anyone, living or dead in the waterski world, who had to tell the truth, who would it be?"


This is your question to ponder for the rest of the weekend, into monday, whatever. However you guys all aim at this sport...what do you really want to know? Who would you ask?
Maybe its something simple like, "I want to talk to Sammy Duvall for an hour and see how bad ass he really is" or, "I want to talk to Dallas Friday and see if she is as bad ass as I think" or whatever.

Coming from the CRB...we have all put our heads together and have come up with a couple ideas. Then again..its just us thinking. But, here is the one that we would choose. Well, two actually.

Lisa Jackson, head of the EPA.


Ralph Samulson, first waterskier ever

We know most of you are afraid to post comments...so we dont expect anything, but, shoot us some ideas. We would love to hear it.

And the Jimi picture? Yeah, imagine the stories he could tell!!

    Stay thirsty my friends.

  4. Dr. Jim...thats interesting.

    What about someone like Dick Pope Jr?

    Dick Pope would be good. Ken White & Lucky Lowe would also be very interesting to talk with but they are not habitual liars.

    Your qualifier "who had to tell the truth, who would it be?" gets the prevaricating doc at the top.

    --Why did you do it?
    --Who helped you rig the course?
    --Was it steroids or Mona Vie?
    --What is your PB w/o cheatin'?
    --When did you decide to steal a record?

    well if they could not lie, jim micheals would be interesting. where was the dividing line between the skill and the cheating. 35 off? 38?

    and the course always moved. It moved into the beginer bouy mark for the college kids to teach slalom.


Speak now. Give us your tired your hungry your weak. We will make them into CRB Staff
