Bob Smith jumping from the break on the Poseidon Adventure @ 1979. Elder Brother Tom rushing forward to catch him one handed.
No Mats!

I love it. You don't get days like that anymore.....

Yes, we walked away from a lot of these and with the practice got quite good at it. However as Philo has alluded too, most of the main protagonists now have at least one artificial hip, dodgy knees, or both!
