Olympic Fever

Adam and I have been watching the Olympics. A LOT of Olympics. Adam would like to pitch an idea for a new Olympic event. What do you all think? (sorry it's sideways...I couldn't figure out how to rotate video. Anyone out there know how?)

I am glad to see that juggling is finally getting the air time that it deserves.
I loved Adam's routine. His technique was mostly good although his posture was shaky in spots. I do, however, feel that Adam shows one of the most charismatic performances I have ever seen in amateur juggling. I was delighted to see some new skills like the 'around the world' but felt cheated by the lack of traditional juggling skills like the 'ferry ride' and 'last night in Tuscon'. Overall I think he has a good chance at a bid in London. Good job, Adam.
Along with juggling, what about it's sister sport, yo-yo?

joking aside: I had a friend in high school that competed in national yo-yo competitions. True story.

Nice! Very impressive Adam! :)

It sounds like a good idea to me! The scoring would probably make a lot more sense than gymnastics. We are both pretty ticked about Nastia getting silver when she clearly should have gotten gold.
We have been watching a ton of Olympics, too. Well, I check on the internet to see who won (without letting Phil see) and then Phil watches while I sleep on the floor. He usually wakes me up for the important bits.

a) You must love each other

b) My boys give him a perfect 10!

c) I vote that it be added to the next olympics. Heck, badminton is a sport, why not juggling?!?!?

I think Adam is immensely talented and Claudia makes a great commentator. Take the show on the road!

Wow, he's really good. He should start doing Birthday Parties on the weekends.

I love it. I love it that Adam is manly enough to juggle on camera. I love that you have so much fun together. But I especially love your very Olympic-style announcing!! Awesome. You just need a good back story about how Adam was crippled as a child and how juggling was his only link to the world and you've got the perfect Olympic story/event.

We give him a 15.575! That follows the really new scoring system in gymnastics that has me totally confused. I think he is terrific and I agree with Rach...Saturday should be birthday party day. Parents would rent him for sure!!!! I didn't know Adam even had that type of skill. Should have guessed, he is so smart!

I am going to be honest Adam I was expecting more from you. Next time I want you wearing that wetsuit and goggles you wore at Mr. Skyline, then juggle while singing some rediculous song!! ha ha j/k I couldn't juggle if my life depended on it, so i have no room to talk.
