    Oh to be a fly on the wall when he was telling his son to spend the afternoon in a box in the attic.

    The family actually released this footage. Why they did that I will never know.

    Anybody see this on GMA this morning, the family didn't really put the hoax idea to rest by any means. It was like they had to think about how to answer each question.


    Two favorite teams, the Cyclones, and whoever is playing the Hawkeyes!

    They should be sued for the cost of all the emergency personel, etc.

    Daddy sounds ticked that no one tethered his toy. I am not sure if I would say the little guy missing is a hoax or not based on the video - but they definitely knew the eagle was flying.

    "I'm feeling very, very grateful that Falcon is among us," said Richard Heene, a meteorologist who had planned to use the balloon for experiments. "We went through so many emotions yesterday."


    Self-owned.

    Because even though they're busted, we're still talking about the sick bastards. That's my guess.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    This isn't going to end well for Falcon and his family.

    Re: The 'balloon family' is pretty much busted. Video of them releasing balloon surf

    I'm betting the family released this because little Falcon spilled the beans yesterday. If you watch the CNN interview with Wolf Blitzer, when asked why he ran to the attic, Falcon essentially says "You guys told me that we did it for the show." The reaction by the parents is awesome!


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    If this doesn't happen I will be extremely disappointed.
