Call for action! Lay face down and do nothing!

I'm calling for you to take part in a super cool sport! It takes no skill and will automatically make you funny and cool. No skill + funny + cool = hip and modern!

You may or may not have heard of parkour. It's a non-competitive sport of urban exploration-on steroids. Practicers run, leap, duck, and swing through the city landscape as though being chased by the Hounds of Hell. It can be dangerous, but it is thrilling to watch.

Did you ever see the opening chase scene in the 2006 Casino Royale? The man being chased was a renowned parkour artist, Sebastien Foucan, and featured some of the stylings that have made parkour so popular. You have probably seen it more often than you realize, in movies, television, and commercials.

A new sport has emerged from this one, that is much more accessible to you and me. Parkour for lazies is what it is called on this website                                                                                         

  • You basically lay face down.
  • Have a friend take a photo.

Me at the Boise Capital Rotunda on MLK day!
Top that!
