Most embarrassing moment doing sports?
I had to ask the woman photographer to photoshop one of the online pictures of me coming out of the water at Discoman... A female friend of mine noticed (after I had sent the link to a few friends and family) that one of the pictures was a little "revealing" and needed to be edited.
