… Mr. Plow.
On Saturday I had the privilege and honour to participate in the Slate River Valley Celebrity Plowing Match. I had never heard of such a thing before being asked… I thought maybe it had something to do with snow.
Apparently plowing competitions are a big deal and some people take them very seriously… including our morning guy Andy Captain. The week leading up to the event Andy was just a chirping, saying that not only was he going to whoop me but that he was going to beat everyone entered. Big words for a guy weighing a buck 20 soaking wet. I was also quite confident… in the fact that I was going to end up dead last. What did I know about plowing? Everything I knew I learned from Homer Simpson… and thats the wrong kind of plowing.
There are different categories, including horse drawn, tractor, and old school hand controlled plow. There is even a world plowing championships. I don’t think I would fair to well there.
Once we got out to the fair grounds and it was time to go I was focused. I just didn’t want to make a fool of myself and fall on my face. I listened to our instructor Larry, kept it straight and hoped for the best. It’s not the easiest thing to do… you walk behind a tractor that is pulling this huge metal blade and you have to make sure it doesn’t dig down into China or vere left to the parking lot. I’m not sure what exactly the judge looks for when scoring a row but he liked mine and not only did I beat Andy but I won the whole kit and caboodle. I am the new Slate River Valley Celebrity Plowing Champion! I’m going to put that on my resume.
Just have one more thing to say to Andy Captain…. suck it… hahahahahaha
