Stingrays in Grand Cayman and Skydiving in Cali

Some more non-poker related videos.

Here’s a video shot in Grand Cayman of a stingray feeding dive we did. The funny part is that for all of the danger people think is involved with diving with sharks I actually received my worst animal related bite from a stingray.

While trying to feed one of the rays she sucked hard to pull the food in and I tried to get my hand out of the way after releasing the squid into her mouth. Well, she kept sucking and it pulled the skin on the back of my hand into her mouth and she clamped down (no teeth) and tore off a huge hunk of skin. Pretty nasty with a huge piece of flesh just hanging there.

So, don’t fear sharks. Fear those evil stingrays 🙂

The next clip is my first (and so far, only) skydive in Paso Robles, Ca. I was pretty confident right up until I was sitting in the doorway. That’s when it all sort of hit me. Good thing the instructors were there to give me a push (literally). 🙂
