Paddler of the Week

August 2000


The Featured Paddler of the Week is
new River Rat
Sven Gali.

(Sven isn't his real name, but because we got him from the Witness Protection Program, we can't tell you his real name.)

Age:  26

Sign: Taurus

Occupation:  Dog Catcher

Favorite Song:  Jailhouse Rock

Favorite Movie:   Shawshank Redemption

Hobbies: painting, theatre, tattooing

Personal Hero Figures:  Sharon Stone

Favorite quote: "But officer, I didn't do it..."

This is Sven right after we allowed him into our club.  See how happy he is!  His face has been masked to protect his true identity

Sven is a reformed bank robber, and has come to our club as part of his parole order with the courts.  It has worked wonderfully for Sven and the River Rats... he fits right in with the rest of us!

Sven now works a day job as a dog-catcher. When he is not paddling furiously with us crazy River Rats, you can find him chasing down illegal dogs, keeping us safe from illicit canines!

In addition to his day job, Sven has recently taken up night classes in impressionist painting.  He hopes to eventually render a Monet-like mural on the side of a dragonboat, depicting the angst of a Modern Male who is Plagued by Excess Hormones.

It's great to have you paddling with us, Sven!  You're the best!

Here's Sven with his parole officer and psychiatrist.
