Don't know how I missed this. Looks like a pretty average Rosey day.

Be sure to watch the last 20 seconds with the volume UP to see Iso.

The debate is over... It's BFF all the way!... Back & Fanny First.

Havn't laughed this hard in a while.

That double duck gybe at :50 is one of the silliest things I have seen in a while.

Seemingly the video is private, so it requires some kind of login to view it. Damn, I really wanted to see isobars perform. I guess I'll have to be patient and wait until Craig has the opportunity to capture his on the water performance.

I was able to see the video before "Something" happened to it. Sheesh, what a party pooper. Shocked

I saw it. How do you know it's isobars?

The choice of music at the end...is that the giveaway?

The vid maker did not want to cause any conflict, as we sail with Mike.

In retrospect maybe I shouldn't have pointed this part of the vid out.

I know its hard for "M.F." to take things in a "lighter vein".... might not have gone over well.

It was a 8+ minutes video showing a dozen or so Roosevelt locals performing moves.

They were all named except one, the one appearing after the credits in the last 20 seconds, kind of like a blooper: it's basically a stormtrooper performing an intentional back plant to stop (which in itself doesn't sound stupid to avoid stepping down hard into a rock and twist your ankle).

If you need a visual, a frame grab could have looked something like this:

You saw the video...you thought that was a good way to avoid injury?
