serious question:

how does one acquire a "favorite" canoe racer? I mean, what attributes must a canoe racer posses that appeals to fans of canoe racing?

If you watch you can see bags of some "Gel" stuff hanging in their canoes - I suspect that shit is loaded with energy of some sort.

I'm thinking he followed up his workout with a dancing exhibition at the local sock hop..

he looks like the kind of fine Spartan that can really cut a rug... after a casual 30 mile bike ride.

They should make this race a hell of a lot shorter, and make each racer finish a beer by every timing gate. That is a race I would do.

Honestly, I'd love to really know if he thinks he's not misogynistic. I really don't think he understands that. He's a feminist only when it's convenient.

11:30 minutes but really the best video I've seen done on the start, the bridges with the crowds and the portages. Worth the watch if you have any interest.

Why do you support colonialism and genocide?

According to Misao Dean, Professor of English at the University of Victoria, the canoe can be a symbol of colonialism, imperialism and genocide due to history. She also accused the canoers of cultural appropriation because they are primarily white men and have a privileged place in society.

In a radio interview for CBC Radio, which wasn’t picked by the Internet until several months later, she claimed “we have a whole set of narratives that make the canoe into a kind of morally untouchable symbol, something that seems natural, that seems ordinary, and seems to promote values that we ascribe to.”

“But I think if you look a little further that narrative obscures or erases another narrative—and that narrative is about, to be blunt, it’s about theft and genocide”, the professor said.

Dean continued to explain why she thinks Canada picked the canoe as a symbol, claiming it has to do with benefits to particular groups—particularly white men— who pushed the canoe.

Largo Springs Alaska, ahem… I Mean Michigan



After checking out the streams and waterfalls, we headed toward the river bank views.

I was excited to see the AuSable in a different place. I had no idea that it would be so wide and surrounded by such astounding nature. My husband said, “It’s like Alaska”.

He was right, we’ve never been to Alaska, but it really was nothing like we’d ever seen in Michigan. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
