Holy Terror, It's Batman!-The Dive of Death At Wollman Rink

So David Blaine is someone I hold dear and this week he will attempt to hang upside down for 60 hours straight in Central Park.

David is pushing himself to the limit and we all just have to cross our fingers he doesn't go blind. It's completely crazy but I am sure he will be able to do it. He has an incredible amount of will power and strength.

Not only will he be hanging upside down, depriving himself of food and sleep, but he'll also be 5 stories up above Wollman Rink.
This event is going to be interactive with the public and I've read that there will be a cherry picker to lift visitors to the top to speak to David.

This event is completely free and begins today at 8:30 am and culminates on Wednesday with an ABC Live Special at 9pm where David magically escapes the hanging device. Come by and give your support!

David Blaine does worry me, although this seems less crazed than being buried alive.

Nice write-up in Crain's New York Business this week. Hope your blog grows as a result.
