COLUMBIA, Mo. — A fish out of water sent a Texas kayaker onto dry land instead of the finish line at an annual Missouri River endurance race.
Houston resident Brad Pennington was considered one of the favorites among men's solo racers in the Missouri River 340, a canoe and kayak race that began Tuesday morning in Kansas City, Kan. At least until a 30-pound Asian silver carp jumped more...
On an unrelated story a couple of good ole boys at the local micro brew in St. Charles got into a scuffle; Mark and Toby went flying.
It appears that a couple of beers were knocked off the bar and Mark and Toby both dove to save them (the Samaritans that they are) Quoting Toby; "We'll have none of this, alcohol abuse while I'm around" From a man that just paddled 340 miles; God Bless him!
