I would've guessed the only water sport at Ohio State University is the Mirror Lake Jump, but that's not accurate. Ohio State actually has plenty of water sports and one is water skiing.
In fact, they were proudly represented over the weekend at the NCWSA (National Collegiate Water Ski Association) Nationals by water skier Kyle Dammeyer.
Thanks to our friend Matt Clapp at Sharapova's Thigh, and waterskibroadcasting on YouTube, we have footage of Kyle's attempted jump:
Of course, something like this is always much more enjoyable when there is an announcer who sounds like Bear Grylls, or Randall. (And we can say "enjoyable" because Kyle's okay!)
Here are some of my favorite quotes:
"OH NO! OH, WOW! ... Are you okay, Kyle?" (he's fine)
"Ladies and gentleman, let's hear it for Kyle Comintoyaaahaaa."
"Oy, oy ... And I don't care what anyone says, but that is going on YouTube." (and we thank you very much indeed for that)
"Buhh, I don't want to look at it again." (it's played again)
