    Yeah, I would pretty much be freaking out the whole time if he wasn't, now I can just enjoy the amazing feat of acrobatics!

    I think ABC will live stream it on their website... Go check!

    Niagara falls is quite pretty, and him falling would still be quite dramatic, just not as deadly... Imagine the rescue effort they would put up!

    Thoroughly disappointed when I found out he was gonna wear a safety harness. At that point, I turned off the TV. 2 hours of my life wasted.

    It still takes alot of bravery to cross the such hurdle, it is not like walking across with a net under you. Also he had to wear the harness or he wouldn't be allowed to cross . . .

    Big deal.. I've already done that, twice!
    But instead of Niagra Falls I used the garden hose.
    And instead of a tightrope I used a 2 x 4.

    I dont know how anyone could have watched that and *not* been amazed and utterly impressed..
    safety harness or no..
    it was pretty amazing!

    the wife and I considered going to see it in person!
    (she is a Buffalo native and grew up 10 miles from the falls, and we now live 90 minutes away)
    but we decided the crowds and the traffic back-up to get out (and getting home well after midnight) would be a bit much..
    so we just watched it on TV..it was very cool!
