Baller lpskier Posted January 26, 2014 Baller Share Posted January 26, 2014 Scot and Marion's upcoming wedding made me think: There have been some great water ski unions. Andy and Deena, Ricky McCormick and Suzie Graham, Bruce and Toni Neville, Jaret and Britta Llewellyn , Kris and Jennifer LaPoint, Ryan and Brianne, Dodd (the latter two being relatively recent marriages of reasonably short duration), etc. I can't think of one, though, that has produced a great second generation skier. On the other hand, many single (famous) skier families have produced lots of great second and third generation skiers: J.D., Mike and Poochie Morgan and her sister, Drew and Neilly Ross, the McClintocks, the Rinis, Lucky and Chase Lowe, Cory and Adam Pickos, Brenda Baldwin and her girls (sorry Mike, not famous enough), Jennifer Leachman LaPoint and Taylor Woolsey (currently 13th and 8th on the open womens list respectively, how cool is that?), Jack and John Travers (okay, as a skier Jack is obscure outside of the eastern region, but everyone knows him as a great coach), Jody and Stephen Seal (Jody gets a Jack Tracers exemption, too). There must be plenty of other examples. By the way, this list doesn't preclude the other parent being a skier, just not a famous skier/coach/driver. Who am I missing, and if no one, why do you suppose that the "two great skier families" aren't regenerating skiers? Too big a combined shadow to live under? If these kids were race horses, we'd be getting fortunes for their offspring and you can bet (literally) they would be running in a oval.
