Paparazzi Attack Andrew McLean Family

Post by blogger | February 3, 2006      

The celebrity backcountry skiers managed to escape the camera glass after their canine body guards ripped the photographer’s pack of chewing gum from his pocket, but not before the predatory paps shot this revealing photo of the McLean quiver. It’s rumored that People magazine offered six figures for the shot, but the paps turned them down in favor of, which is a better venue for a tattered photog trying to repair his reputation.

Canine body guards pictured below managed to chase off 36 photographers in the space of 45 minutes. At rest they appear quite lovable, but the eyes tell the tale. These are ferocious beasts that give quarter to none, least of all to a man with a camera.

    OMG! I definitely showing this to my wife of evidence of someone crazier than me (that’s a compliment). I guess that really is two quivers, since I’m guessing Polly’s skis are in there, too, so I’m not too far off. Either way, someone must be good at cutting skins by now. How about a pic of the dawson family quiver?

    Those new Shucksans leaning on the bench appear to be mounted with the new Dynafit “Stealth” binding – you may not have seen that one yet, Lou – strictly black ops…

    Nice stable of planks. How’d those tele bindings get in there? Kidding.

    Hey Lou!

    Do I actually see a pair of Tele boards amongst that quiver?
    If this ever gets to Teletips no telling what will happen…
