There's no better way to end the summer than with a giant water slide. What's even better is if you take skis, snowboards, inner tubes and whatever the hell else you can find, including European dance music and leather-clad girls. That, my friends, is a recipe for entertainment. If that's not what this recipe creates, then there might be something wrong with you.
The other day I stumbled upon the video accompanying this post. I'm not entirely sure what country this is in (Isn't all of Europe the same, anyway?) or why this is all going on, but I Babelfished the translation of the video's description, and it provides a little insight. Apparently, Anaheim's Jonas Hiller is going off the water slide somewhere in there with what is described as a "mad run". He wasn't actually mad, that's just what the kids are saying these days... Even the kids in Europe apparently.
For the second time the Alpamare accomplished the Waterslide Contest on Saturday. Over 100 participants the Contest supervisors counted in this year. Even NHL Stargoalie Jonas Hiller was also from the portion and submitted a mad run. Also olympia winners, European and Swiss masters were at the start and offered to the spectators a varied show on the eight meters high snow ramp.
And accomplish the water slide contest they did! That looked like a good time and has now been added as #478 on my list of reasons why I need to visit Europe.
