Sensei,

That is some good prose - seriously. Choice nugget:

The feeling in your gut, driving up the canyon is overwhelming, but youve got to concentrate. For some it can be painful. They try to exercise their demons. They puke or dry heave at the put-in. This can be disconcerting for those without this affliction. No matter who you are the butterflies are circling.

Good stuff - thanks.

Doh! Guess I kept reading and slid into a post from last spring. But it's still good.

There's a great example of a sweep boof in progress on page 275 of WOTSR.

Wigston is killing it on that Eldo sweep boof. That is definitely the plan A version. Enter one way, land another.

I was with some friends the other day and busted out a little Joe Esposito in honor of Danielson and no one knew what the hell was going on...weird.

Thanks for dropping some knowledge and some Esposito Evan!
