In my ongoing series of stories that prove that sometimes reality TV really does imitate reality, we have the story of Jesse Csincsak, who some people (probably none of the people who frequent this blogsite) know as the winner from the fourth season of a television show apparently called The Bachelor.
As CBS news, Channel 4,in Denver, Colorado reported, Jesse happened to be in the right place at the right time while riding his snowmobile—or as Sarah Palin’s hubby calls it, a snowmachine—when he happened to discover a mother and son who strayed just a little from the ski resort boundary, and by “just a little” I mean 15 miles.
I came upon this story, thanks to a lead from my crack research staff, who lives within a hidden Lemurian village in Mount Shasta, with additional background information from the trusted news source of Us Weekly.
Apparently, before they crossed paths with their snowmachine savior, in a classic case of understatement, the mom-person was later quoted on a television news interview as figuring out,
“This could be bad.”
And, even though the son-person later acknowledged a total lack of ANY other people or ANY ski tracks, on a TV news clip he later claimed,
“We didn’t even know that we were lost.”
Clearly, the Good Samaritan Mr. Csincsak interrupted what would have been yet another instance of proof that Darwin was right, albeit with a sad tragic conclusion.
But, in this instance mom and son got real lucky and thus tragedy avoided.
But, I must admit, as much as I will sometimes (always) curse those galdarned smoky, noisy, snowmobiles, the next time I ignore the signs and end up 15 miles off-piste…way in the hell off-piste…I hope a snowmachine happens my way.
Even if Sarah Palin is driving it.
I guess, with some folks concerns of an ever-increasing nanny state, this might be the next generation of ski resort boundary.
