Weatherman, Segway and Southern Comfort

Shot at some event or other last summer, Mike Roberts, a weatherman for the local NBC affiliate gives his evening report while riding a Segway in front of a giant inflatable Southern Comfort bottle. Kids, don't try this at home. You should never give a weather report while drinking Southern Comfort.

The Segway was provided courtesy of Glide Tours St. Louis, a really cool company that will teach you how to ride one of the gizmos and take you on tours about town. One of their groups was kind enough to let me take their picture, which I posted on June 8.

There is a certain fascination about these conveyances. I posted on awhile back with a ST. Paul policeman riding and patrolling on it. I rode one in Hawai'i and thought it was fun. Good photo, incidentally since I'm a bit partial to snaps with humans in it.

I've never really understood the appeal of Segways, personally, but I've seen a lot of people having fun riding them around.

You've been tagged! See my Tuesday post for details.

Oh I do get the appeal! Why, oh why have I never seen one of those here?

Ah, I see. Southern Comfort, weatherman on a segway, and weather forcast...it is no wonder... ;)
