My son saw an edition of Sports Illustrated for Kids on television which
profiled Steve Young, SF 49ers quarterback.On the show he rode a unicycle. He
talked about delivering newspapers on a unicycle as a kid.

I taugh superstart Japanese singer Hideki Saijo to ride about 15 years ago, and
he was able to ride straight and do simple turns.

Remember the super-famous Alps skiing champion Stenmark. Not only could he
ride, but did/dos so quite well. We toook tons of pictures when he came to
Tokyo ages ago.

Sadly, Sonny passed away in a skiing accident last year. A few years ago I was
told he was in my audience when I was doing a street show. When asked what he
did, I was told he was smiling. Since I didn't notice, I didn't use him as a
volunteer to demo the uni nor did he come up afterwards to take it for a spin.

However, I was an extra in the movie "In the Line of Fire" w/Clint Eastwood
though the uni was cut out :-( . While I was giving a demo for some folks Clint
came over & asked me a lot of questions about the uni. I offered to let him ride
& private lessons but he never phoned so perhaps he really can ride but he's a
closet unicyclist ;-).

Universally yours, Unicycle Lady http://members.aol.com/unilady/ "A Smile is a
Wonderous Thing"

I remember reading somewhere that Richard Branson rides a unicycle...he'd be
better off sticking with it rather than ballooning it seems to me !

Might be worth remembering if you're going to fly with Virgin and want to take
your uni without any hassle !

Here is a PHOTO of another famous unicyclist, or rather a famous person who happens to ride a unicycle: Donald Rumsfeld.

For those of you who are youngsters, Mr. Rumsfeld was the Chairman of Gilead Sciences, among other corporate posts. He was a congressman from Illinois, and he was the Secretary of Defense for the US. Twice!
