I Split doing the Splits

OK let's go way back -
We're talking around 1969-1971. I actually got to dance on The Varsity Show which was Alaska's version of American Bandstand.
Ron Moore was the host. I actually went on the show and was dancing to James Brown's "I Got the Feeling". I spun around and did the splits and ripped my pants from the front to the back of the belt on live TV. Luckily I was wearing clean white underwear. It was still embarrassing - but Fun.
