Ridiculous Video Of Me On A Trapeze. Basically.

Without catch.

With catch.

I want to preface this post by saying that this is very sloppy -- both the quality of the video and my attempted execution of the Hocks Off (second video) in trapeze class yesterday. My form was bad and I let go of the bar way too late with my knees. But I thought I'd share the absurdity anyway.

Ouch... That didn't look pleasant. I'm guessing you have sore tendons right about now.

No, actually that didn't hurt at all (not me anyway, I can't speak for the other guy). Though it hurt earlier when I wacked my heels on the back of the bar during a flip.

You officially rock.

How about an all-Yalie circus? You up top and...lessee...well, we got a clown in the White House that'll soon be out of job. Two are a good start, yes?

You must have been watching Celebrity Circus!

Wow. Just... wow.

When we first started dating, I wanted to take a dance class together, but my wife found something better: trapeze. We signed up and went to class, where I swung (swang? swinged? trapezated) four times until the weightlifting calluses on my hands ripped, at which point, bleeding, I was done. I still went to one other class, but my girlfriend/wife was terrified of heights and only went to the one.

Glad to see you're more invested than we were.
