Chris et all!
I just read about JR and the accident and my thoughts are with You and the Family Chris!
He must be the finbreaker from Del Mar, right? Or was it another show? Memories....
That would be him.
Now here is the rest of the story. A rep from FHP had a new head on a table inviting anyone to take a swing at it with a ball peen hammer. This was to show the strength of the material used in them. Guys had been whacking on this head all day with no damage. Jr Picked it up and gave it a whack and the fin busted off. The rep said well that is the same fin guys have been hitting all day. Jr asked if anyone had hit the newly exposed fin behind it and was told no. So he popped it and it too broke off. Now in all fairness Jr is 6'4", 260 and had recently been working as a roofer.
