When you think of blind dates, you think of possible awkward silences, not being attracted to each other, that sort of thing. You're not really thinking about high-speed motorcycle chases. One unfortunate woman ended up on the back of former Canadian football prodigy, Paul Childs' motorcycle. The 21-year-old started weaving, blowing through red lights and driving recklessly at high speeds. They were chased by cops both on land and in the air until Childs was finally caught and the woman rescued.
Child's excuse for his poor date behavior when he represented himself in court? His childhood home had burnt down that year and killed his "positive momentum." And surely, his date's "positive momentum" about finding love is also dead. [Winnipeg Sun]
