Wearing Plaid Skirts and Throwing Objects (Video)


Matt Vincent is a champion in the Highland Games.  I'm not terribly familiar with the Highland Games other than attending a few and competing in one whilst I was completing my concentration in university.  If you ever go to a Highland Games festival wear earplugs.  The bagpipes sound great...for the first 15 minutes.  Then you just want to punch the air bladder and blame them for Ko"backwards R"N.  Anyway, Matt has written a number of books about training for the Highland Games and travels the world competing.  He began video taping his travels and the people he meets - and has started a series called "The Drifta Lifta".  Yep, you read that right.  The name seems to imply unbrushed teeth and dumpster diving for expired cuisine, but it is quite the opposite.  The first episode of the series features a stop in San Francisco (which Jack Donaghy calls "'People's Gay-public of Drugifornia''.) He has a stop into a Crossfit facility to get his chi alingned and remind him to lift heavy weights.  Also includes his performance in a Highland Games and some good entertaining banter. This is some good stuff. Check it out and have a good laugh. Watch close enough and you might learn something as well.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mqy_DY0lQIg
