you guys don't miss a thing. yea.......i watched it. with trepidation.
the news crew spent the morning with me. i've never taught "never evers" with a camera rolling. i thought the experience would be a breeze. between a marketing person at the resort telling me to put my "best foot forward" and my own internal pressure i was a tad nervous.
the students were great, the camerman was great, and the reporter tried to put me at ease.
so after the deal a supervisor tells me i have been overheard utilizing a few teaching terms that, well, let me just say, i wish i had not used. the beginner hill was crowded and a couple of times i was sure one of the skiers was going to kill someone and it was going to be taped.
"wider wedge, wider wedge, narrow in the front, wide in the back, JUST PUSH YOUR HEELS OUT, AS FAR AS YOU CAN NOW, NOW!"
hope the DTP crowd saw it. one of the guys went DTP in his first turn and never busted out a wedge. one of the students needed friction and lots of it.
this filters to the locker room and i get all grades of hell from trainers, supervisors, peers.
some serious....... some good natured.
the SSD walks buy while i'm getting drilled, and bless his heart, supports what i did by saying sometimes when things aren't going great a guys gotta do what a guys gotta do. sometimes it's full flaps.....drop anchor!
coming from a former d-teamer the crowd was silenced!
