August 12, 2008: Splash Party Tribune sports editor Mike Kellams and I decided that every day for fun I should try to get to one "wild card" event. This wild card event would be something different and something that we normally wouldn't cover as part of our daily report. I started the fun this afternoon with canoe and kayak slalom finals. I can't think of a cooler sport to shoot than this one. It has everything -- good light, splashing water and great facial expressions. A trifecta of goodness.
