Anyone watching the highwire walk over the Grand Canyon? Now on Discovery channel. No tether. No net! YIKES!!!!

I'm watching, even though I'm not sure I want to be. It's like an accident I can't look away from. The shots of the Grand Canyon are beautiful, however!

This guy is nuts, as far as I'm concerned. I understand the family tradition, but if you've got a wife and three kids, how the heck can you go out on a wire WITH NO TETHER?????

I know!!! I can't watch...but I will through my hands over my eyes! My brother & a bunch of my friends watched him live over Niagara Falls last year. My daughter was a street performer for it. Never saw THAT perspective of the falls!

I missed that one. I'm just glad I'm not the only one watching this, I'm so hooked I'm even putting off True Blood for it!

This is so awesome, but the wind you can see his tee shirt blowing and his pant legs. Is this just crazy or what?

Crazy is the word for it!! Those shots looking down are really amazing. Actually, all the shots of him are, he looks so small against the vastness of the canyon.

He seems so much more nervous than he did walking over the falls.

That was close. What would honestly possess someone to even try such a stunt? And to televise it, when so many things could go wrong.

well over the Falls he had a safety net... that's a huge piece of mind having that I'm sure

edit - safety harness thing not a net
