Journalistic Hack Job by Hough and Reymond


This highly edited and misleading video was posted by Brian on The Graze so it demands an explanation.

The event in view is a contest at Horn Creek family camp this past summer where two people sit on a swinging log and try to knock each other off with a pillow. Being a loving, caring husband who wants to build up the esteem of his wife and make her feel good about herself- I feigned defeat. The slow-mo replay reveals the finishing blow was actually just a slight graze incapable of knocking someone of my physique off a log. Clearly I took a dive for the sake of marital peace and longevity.

Despite my good intentions and humble act on that fateful night, Bob "Geraldo" Reymond and Brian "tabloid" Hough have posted this video depicting me as a sniveling, wimpy, loser and my wife as a gladiatorial victor gloating over her vanquished foe. A crafty edit job for sure, but none the less apalling for those who care about truth and justice.

Well, I am confident that you, my faithful and intelligent readership, will see the truth despite the journalistic hack job done by Hough and Reymond.

I think Brian's a closet egalitarian.

Apparently, Tony “The Tiger” did not have the “Eye of the Tiger” moment. Not since Sonny Liston’s dive from a phantom punch thrown by Cassius Clay have sports fans seen such a dive. Truly, an Ephesians 5: 22-33 moment in the annals of Professional Pillow Fighting.

I was there as a fellow camper and can attest to the impressive display of power in one swift blow from a bag of feathers cast by the fearless and obviously well-trained "Champ" Felich. Climbing upon the log brings with it an instant, overwhelming sense of "Can I do this? Will I win?" that Pastor Tony was unable to work through and conquer. Call it what you will, an Eph 5 moment, etc., but all who had ringside seats know that "Champ" is the Real Deal!

JASON! You are stabbing me in the back! Throwing me under the bus...feeding me to the wolves!

Clearly you were suffering altitude sickness and cannot accurately remember the event as it really happened!

Hough said...

All that matters is this is now on the internets which makes it true.

Jason Edwards said...

Feeding you to the wolves is much safer than receiving the wrath of the "Champ".

But you are correct, I did suffer from altitude sickness which is what I blame my own loss on while on the log with my seven year old son, Jake. But thankfully there is no video of that.

I'll have to say, I've enjoyed your blog and have learned an enormous amount from some of your contributors, like Turtleman for instance. We in Mississippi hold in high esteem anyone who can clear a pond of snapping turtles while at the same time have no front teeth due to a run-in with a chainsaw. How in the world did that happen?

Dude, I would DEMAND a REMATCH!!! The video clearly shows that it was your own momentum, created by your massive biceps, that caused you to topple.

Having almost made it through another grinding, disappointing and terribly depressing day in the Lumber commodities, all I can say is Shari is ALL class and the big man’s ugly defeat brought me a smile!

I didn't want to brag about the guns, but since you brought it up....

Anyways, my people are working on a rematch as we speak.

Having been a target of one of Brian's smear campaigns, and knowing the journalistic integrity of Reepicheep, I'm going with Tony's account.
