    Thumbs up Tony Schumacher - Spearfisherman?

    This past Saturday, 3/14/09, I was invited to the Gatornationals by the local Army recruiting station as a C.O.I. (Center Of Influence). Along with about 20 or so other C.O.I.'s, I was treated to a day at the races and lunch in the Army VIP tent adjacent to the Army top fuel dragster pit.. There were several speeches from various military personnel and "The Sarge", Tony Schumacher.

    After all of the speeches, they had us come up and gave us all an Army racing hat and shook our hands. When it came my turn to shake Tony's hand, he noticed the shirt I was wearing, (a Spearfishing Specialties shirt with the rhino on it. I'm looking out for you Kevin ), and said "Spearfishing, huh?" By the way he said it, he seemed to be very interested, but we didn't get any more time to talk about it since there were other people behind me and he had to go prep for the next race right after the "meet & greet."

    Fast forward to Sunday.
    Thanks again to the local Army recruiting commander, I got to go back to the Gatornationals for the finals.
    When I took my girlfriend over to look at the Army car, Tony came out to sign autographs. While she was getting a hat signed, I asked him if he was interested in going spearfishing and he said he was planning on it. Once again, he had to move on and we didn't get a chance to talk again.
    He may have just been being polite, but it appeared to me that he was genuinely interested in spearfishing.

    If he doesn't spearfish now, hopefully I was able to prompt him to look into it and take it up.

    ...just had an idea! "Spearfishing Tournament Of The Stars!"
    Tiger Woods, Tony Schumacher, and any other spearfishing "stars" battle for the biggest fish.

    Anyway....

    If you happen to go to one of the big drag races, make sure you stop by Tony's pit and ask him about spearfishing.
