A few weeks ago I posted a diary about one of my sailing team kids and how her science teacher accused her of cheating on a test about wind.
We came up with two ideas to convince him that she had some experience with using the wind for power. One was to bring in a guest speaker from The America's Cup winning team Oracle Team USA. The other was to give him a picture of her and other junior sailing team members with the Cup that, by coincidence, was making a visit on its way to Larry Island.
She asked her teacher if he would allow her to bring in a guest speaker. His response was, "Hell no!"
So we went with plan B. She took the below picture of some team members, a coach and the Cup into class. Remember, this is a guy that stated he knows all about sailing.
When shown the picture he asked, "Why would you have your picture taken with a hookah?"
When informed that it was the America's Cup he sheepishly admitted that maybe he didn't know as much about sailing as he thought.
Thanks for the two-fer on the original post. Rec List and Community Spotlight for one diary is pretty cool.
