By the way Ė an interesting technique to use with the CBS video bios is to watch them with the sound off.

You know that the words being spoken are semi-scripted and a whole lot of hooey anyway, so just watch the body language. Itís enlightening.

Okay again, enough about me and my ground rules. Iím here to recap this adventure for you and itís time to begin.

And for me itís interesting already.

During the initial castaway self-introductions, the local channel tried to tell me the network was blocked for football. Idiots. Itís not true but it sure got my dander up.

ďCome on in, guys,Ē says the dimpled one who is sporting teal this season.

As they align themselves on the mats, we see that they are, indeed a motley crew.

The assortment of garb they have chosen for this journey is almost as weird as that of Pearl Islands. Remember that one? Best one ever in terms of castaway deprivation.

Tell them itís a photo shoot and toss them overboard in suits, ties and cocktail garb.

Iím currently applauding those.....
