MY most embarrassing moment would have to be when I was in a ski show whenI was a teen up at Lake Wawasee......

I got up on the skis and realized my suit was around the ankles, in public! Of course, there were only a few hundred people watching........

I got some Italian dressing on my crotch area, at school last week. The oil would not dry and I had two labs to attend, and no way of going home to change.. So I dropped all my classess for the semester, (no just kidding).

When I was living in south Charlotte working for the PD at my apartment complex I was washing my car at the community wash area. Well, I was still in my Umbro short stage and had a pair on. You know Umbro's.........real lose fit. Yeah...........I was squatted down washing my wheels on my car and noticed the women would walk by and smile and grin. I thought to myself....."You handsome devil, the chicks dig you!" Well, they were grinning for a reason........my "Boy's" were hanging out from the shorts!

Now that's embarassing especially when you look these ladies in the eye again during a pool party!

I fell flat on my ass at the range. We had just shot up a toilet which exploded after my friend shot it 3 times with his AK. The seat on the other hand was still intact and very slick. It was snowing, and I made the mistake of stepping on it. Down I went. Luckily I didn't get cut on the shattered toilet bits since I had on a winter coat and leather gloves. At least 15 people saw it happen.

I went for my first long ride of the year Wednesday (low 70's), and I took a break at a small dirt parking lot right off the side of the road to adjust my seat and some other stuff.

Since the road was on a bit of a incline, I wanted to get a at least some momentum before I got on the road cause there isn't much of a shoulder and I'm on a fixed gear bike (no low gear), but there was a slight drop off from the road where I was so I rolled down the hill a bit, still in the parking lot, and found a spot where it was even and was going to make a quick u turn and carry my momentum up the hill.

But with my skinny road tires and loose dirt, my front wheel came out from under me and I fall flat on my face. And of course there were two, very good looking young ladies jogging, and now giggling, at me.

I got up as fast as I could and mashed my way up that hill faster than I could ever have imagined.

My first race ever, I rode over to my then mentor's car to say hi. I stopped but didn't clip out in time, and fall over right at his feet. Everyone else that was getting ready for the race saw me fall.

I laying on my gf's bed while we watched TV, and I was bouncing one of those giant exercise balls off my stomach by tightening my abs. Well, one of the times I tightened em too much and farted

I went down to the last place I lived to visit a friend. As I was waiting for him to get home, I see someone walking down the street that looks like him from a distance. I start running towards him screaming his name, only when I got closer I realized it wasn't him, but was a woman I kept running and yelling his name until I ran around the corner.

This one was pretty embarrassing and i probably could have gotten punched in the face because of it.

I went to the pub one day with my friend for a couple of drinks, at the other end of the bar was this guy that looked the EXACT same as the goalie on my old soccer team, i waved to him, he waved back. I continued to drink a couple of beers and then my friend went to the bathroom, at this point i thought i should go say hi to Mike. Went up to him, put my arm around him and said "how's my favorite goalie today?!!!" We continued to chat for a few minutes, random things, i started to realize that this was not the goalie from my old soccer team, i was so %^*ing embarrassed and explained to him that he must be a long lost identical twin of this goalie. Luckilly for me, he kinda knew my friend, so that made things a lot less awkward. I apoligised and went on my way.


I told the story to the REAL goalie a few weeks later, and he hasnt stopped reminding me of it.

Oh, I noticed it rather quickly, but couldn't do anything about it because I was already up. I dropped immediately though, but not soon enough!

Crashed hard Saturday and looked up to see the cycling club president rolling up in his RV from the other direction. By the smile on his face, I know this is gonna cost me next group ride.

I once cycled straight into the open door of an 18 wheeler, that was back in the days before clipless, bike carried on about 3 blocks before falling over, I was still seeing stars, and I never wore a helmet back in those days either.

trust me, I've had many...

My most recent embarrassing moment would be while I was at a red light and I fell right over trying to track stand. I turned bright red for two kids laughed at me and a car with a mother and a couple of kids were right next to me. I'm embarrassed just talking about it. good job.
