      The ice melted rather quickly in the cold water Olivia chose to use. It is 100 degrees out here.

        I’m thinking yah need a re-do with ice…:)

          Nope. Given what I’ve seen, I’m not concerned. I know what was in the bucket. Actually, ice cubes would have been easier … they would just bounce off. Crushed ice … that would have been better (but would not last more than a few minutes).

          Everyone’s free to share their responses. 🙂

        A likely story. Next thing you’re gonna tell us you live in the desert or something.

          I refuse to pick on an eleven-year-old. 🙂 She took it, too … and challenged none other than Mark Grimsley, because she’s seen Mark wet before.

    Ah, Arizona in August…there’s a reason Sibley retreated.

    Nicely done.

    Does Olivia realized how many people would have paid to play her part in this exercise? Dumping something on Brooks’s head would be a dream for many, though full satisfaction for most could only come with an amount requiring mechanical assistance.

    I at least thought you were going to match Paul Bissonnette and be dumped on from a helicopter.

        Speaking of Paul Bissonnette, I think instead of doing this in that nice, warm, arid climate, you should agree to do this at center ice in Uniondale in December – could help celebrate the move to Brooklyn and would certainly be more, uh, challenging.

    Both Michael Crow and Olivia Simpson responded. We are waiting on the others.

    Of course, Susan Hathaway will claim she never reads the blog, although for some reason she seems rather familiar with its contents. I’m sure Connie Chastain, who monitors it every day, will not fail to notify her prior to offering a half dozen posts attacking me. At least it keeps her off the streets, even if she’s still in the gutter.

    Well done, DR Simpson.

    I posted mine SAT on Facebook.
