War on Fun Momentarily Paused
Written by Bwog Staff
Nathan Bailey, Lenny Langenscheidt and John Nordin, (bottom, middle, top of picture respectively) all CC ’12, get a lot of weird looks.
This is due to the trio’s penchant for free running around campus as the rest of us peacefully walk to class. Free running is essentially the British and American version of Parkour, which is basically running around urban landscapes jumping over things and climbing up walls. Bwog’s official urban acrobatics correspondent Julia Barrington noticed the boys climbing up the walls of Uris a few weeks back, and today the trio took us back to the B-school to show us their moves.
Before scaling the walls of their favorite Uris nook, the boys, in true Three Musketeers style, touted the position pictured at right for its ‘all for one, one for all’ mentality. As they lined up, the gentlemen explained: “if one of us falls, we all get crushed.”
The freshmen have also climbed to the top of the dome of St. John the Divine and explored the science facility being constructed next to Pupin, although they didn’t find much besides hard hats and sawdust. As they leaped over the side of Low up to the top of the steps to survey their kingdom, a young man paused and admired them. “Man, that’s so cool” he sighed, “I wish I could do that. I’m so depressed now.” More photos after the jump.
