Bouncing Girl Todd Melby
The St. Paul Winter Carnival is happening this week. One quirky tradition called the St. Paul Bouncing Team: Fourteen guys hold tight a round, canvas blanket. A young woman rolls on. Then they rocket her into the air, 25-35 feet high. If she's good she sdoes an aerial gymnastic move. Then they catch her in the blanket. The Winter Carnival started in 1886, and so did the Bouncing Team: they've been tossing woman skyward ever since-- not one dropped yet.
