Taking a break from the SHOT show... Gatorland 09
« on: January 18, 2009, 08:12:31 PM »
I'm sitting in the airport awaiting my flight back to the frozen wasteland of Michigan... so, I figured I would post a couple of pictures from our trip to Gatorland on Saturday.  Def and I had an amazing time there, all thanks to our resident Gator Wrestler "Latino Heat" (aka Doggy Guru)

Thank you Johnny!  We had a great time!


Here's Def and I INSIDE the pen with Chester... a 13 and a half foot 1000lb alligator. 





Johnny posing with the real star of Saturday's Gator wrestling show...  (the Leathermans)



Afterwards, Def and I both tried our hands at a little Gator wrestling.





At the end of an excellent day, we couldn't resist to take one more picture :D



Def and I both have a lot more pictures from our day at Gatorland that we'll post when we can...

Cool pics.  Did you guys get to feed Chester?

I agree.  This is the only gator I feel comfortable being in the same room with:

Even with all three of us together we were well short of Chester's weight class!

Man that was a great trip... that alone would have been worth the trip to Florida, even if the SHOT Show wasn't here!  We have lots of great pics (and some video!) as Mike said, and I'll try and get some posted soon.  The show is just ending, I'm back at the hotel and trying to eat breakfast... and it's 4:10pm!  :P

Johnny, yoodaman!  That was an amazing experience, and a great show.  Truly a top notch attraction and I'm glad we not only got to see it, but also to meet you in person!

That's the one... not that it did me any good.  Did you know that large reptiles were impervious to 154cm?  I didn't...

It was alot of fun, having Mikey and Grant out.  You guys were fun and very good sports (ya'll missed out on a video of me using Def at one of the shows.  I "volunteered" him to hold an 11 foot python, and bet my partner in the show $5 that "the guy in the pony tail" would run and scream like a little girl).  Mikey's face was priceless when I had him hold a scorpion and tarantula.  I do this everyday, but having Def and Mikey there made it soo much cooler.  We have a table in our office that we sign when we graduate and become gator wrestlers.  I think I'm going to write Defender and 665ae from MT.O, honorary gator wrestlers.
One question, though.  Are you pooping in the bushes in the second picture of the thread, Def?
LOL.

It's not my fault... Chester is a BIG boy and pretty intimidating!

And it was really funy when Mikey accidentally picked up the really poisonous tarantula and scorpion by mistake!



Good job playing it cool until you could get the thick gloves on and get them away from him!

LOL.  Mickey reminds me of Silent Bob.  He's a cool cat who doesn't say much.  But he was a tad bit nervous holding two venomous arachnids.  Hell, at least he held them  Def tried to eat them!!  LOL.  Hey, let me know when you get home, Def.  And get home safe.

Oh no! I've heard that a scorpion sting can make your mind go all twisted and perverted. Poor Mikey. :'(

Thanks Johnny- I leave first thing in the morning but I won't be home until tomorrow evening.  You can bet I'll be online at the airports if I can as I have a bit of a layover.

As for holding your pet bugs there, well to be honest, I was probably just as thrilled as Mikey, at least with the tarantula.  But, I sure as hell wasn't going to wimp out, and if you are going to do something, you might as well have fun with it!  Getting in the pen with Chester was an experience, and one I won't soon forget, but I'd have been damned if I missed it!  He's a fantastic big beastie and I'm glad I met him, at least as close as I did!  Not sure I'd want to get closer than I did, and certainly not without an experienced gator wrestler to call 911 and inform my next of kin, but that's something that not too many folks in Nova Scotia can say they did!

It was a trip man, and I loved every minute of it.  I'll let you know when I upload your show, and I'll be posting it here because I am sure everyone here would like to see it!  It wasn't just the gators- I suspect they are the easy part- but you worked the crowds like a pro, and I wished I'd brought my video camera to get a proper video, and gotten all three shows!  But, at least there's a good reason to come back!

It seems like Def wasn't the only one with a taste for crawly things...  and I have proof!

Def actually looks like he's about to lose his lunch... and the tarantula looks terrified.  :D
