If you like a man in a kilt…
…you might like a few of the pictures I took this afternoon at the Greater Greenville Scottish Games and Highlands Festival.
I can’t quite pinpoint what it is about men in kilts throwing very heavy things that has such a wide appeal, but they’ve obviously got something going for them.
My only regret is that I didn’t have any gamblers with me. The prop betting potential for the Scottish Games was fantastic. I can’t tell you how badly I was jonesing to bet on whether the big guys could flip the caber end over end, or, as in the photo below, use a pitchfork to throw a heavy burlap sack over a large horizontal pole.
Update: Tom, a fellow local blogger and photographer. has a much more comprehensive report on the games over at Random Connections.
