For youz not in the know, the 2013 Greasy Pole contest starts today at 4:45 at Pavilion Beach (if you don’t know where that is, just listen and follow your ears, fool). The first event took place in 1931, so this is the original “X-GAMES” kids. From all accounts, it appears that it will be high tide, or close to it, on every day for the walkers. If you’ve never experienced this event live, I suggest you do so today, Saturday, and Sunday (the day of Champions). And if you don’t have a friggin’ idea what I’m talking about, watch last years amazing winner Saturday, Nick Avelis, it’s a Ball Busta! click the gear for HD…(now you know, so get your asses out there!)

Joey DaSilva wins the Guinness World Record for the fastest time Greasy Pole Walk, in only 4.96 seconds!
Lots of footage of Joey DaSilva (Nick Avelis, and many Greasy Pole Champs, too) in this Fall Greasy Pole Fundraiser video.
I think two different people sent this in, JP from Rockport and Vicki Gamage. Not sure if they saw it on the same site or not or if they both just happened to run across it on youtube. If they saw it someplace on another site let me know and I’ll credit them.
… a few performances are left, at The Annie! If you haven’t seen it yet… what are you waiting for? I went last night for the first time, and there was a full house, so you might want to make reservations. The show was great! Here are a few photos. I’ll be posting these and a few more to my flickr photostream soon.
