Posted:1) I don't think mentioning what Davis uses for breathing was a good idea.
2) I don't particularly like the style the article was written, but that's more of a personal preference thing.

Other than that, I found it to be an interesting read. I have no doubt it will spark some interest among the general population and it's always nice to see a community grow. And hopefully now people will realize it's fire 'n' ice and stop calling you fire nice. tongue


Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?

Posted:Brad [censored by request] huh?

Ice skating?

I didn't know either of those but i do now, funny i never pictured you as a Brad.



Other than that it was a well writen article but it probably got skipped over by the majority of Boston Globe readers coz it didn't have any fire pictures, which is a shame.

Posted:well... I dislike the "heroic" start... umm I'd say it's the wrong signal... the link leads to poi.com instead homeof... ubblol rolleyes I love the firesafety part and the (fire) romance ubblove Apart from that the article is another milestone to make Poi mainstream (which it would become any which way)

WHAT?? You do fire on Ice??? Weaow! That's a kicker! Vid's please!!
