More thoughts. More prayers.
Of all the many things to wake up worrying about including, but not limited to, inflation, war, civil unrest, pandemics, climate change, fentanyl, the top of the list is certainly the possibility that a celebrity, or notable figure, will become permanently disfigured, or dead, whilst trying an e-foil board.
Two short months ago, thoughts and prayers poured in for DJ Khaled as the beloved plus-sized musical artist suffered a debilitating injury that required a massage.
Last week, I read about another famous person who also tumbled off a foil but can’t remember who it was now.
And today we have learned that British Formula 1 hunk George Russell has bruised himself while learning to e-foil on his two-week vacation.
Appearing to be on the Mediterranean with his girlfriend, Carmen Montero Mundt, grainy footage shows Russell gliding above the turquoise waters but doom lurked below.
The devil’s cleaver.
“It was good to branch out and do these things,” he said. “Historically I never wanted to do other sports, especially in-season, in case of injury. But I felt like I wanted to try something new, and keep my sense alive. A few injuries along the way! But all recovered now. When you fall off a foil board…”
Formula 1 fans left worrying greatly by the dangling ellipses.
When you fall off a foil board, what?
Your leg gets severed?
Thankfully, the Mercedes driver finished with, “There are a lot of videos which I didn’t post, falling off big-time! I really enjoyed it. For a lot of us, when you’re so focused throughout the year, to have two full weeks of doing nothing, you get a bit bored after a bit of time. To have an activity, it was fulfilling to make progress, and to not be falling off by the first days.”
The Formula 1 season, in any case, gets underway this weekend with the Dutch Grand Prix.
