Goofy Dive Stunts

from the May, 1998 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

We’ve always thought the Brits Goofy Dive Stunts were the world leaders in goofy dive stunts, and Margaret Scott, from Oldbury, West Midlands, did nothing to dispel that image last March when she celebrated her 72nd birthday by diving to 72 feet to knit a sweater underwater in hope of raising money for the Parkinson’s Disease Society.

But I think the Aussies did her one up last year when the Diving Historical Society sponsored an underwater line-dancing contest. As you can imagine, the idea was cooked up in a local pub, but ten people wearing hardhats pulled it off in a Melbourne pool.

Now perhaps the Americans lead the way. When the Arizona Diamondbacks expansion team played their first-ever major league baseball game on March 31, two disk jockeys were on scuba in the centerfield bleachers. You see, this new park has a pool, and they had vowed to stay underwater until the Diamondbacks scored their first run. While they had enough air for 15 innings, they came up for fresh air in the sixth after the first run. P.S.: For only $4000, you can rent the pool during a game for your own scuba stunts—and take 34 friends. No skinny scuba permitted.
