Oh shoot this picture got me, I didn't know Mike was missing a leg. I always watch his vids but I never noticed it.
I try to walk very perfectly whenever I'm on camera for videos or TV work.
For casual events and our Thursday night classes I wear shorts but in the past any video or TV work and most public appearances I wear pants.
There's the argument to be made that being seen with a chrome, Terminator leg would be a positive "hook" kind of like Dennis Gage has his curly mustache, and that's how people recognize him, but to date I've always worn pants because on the flip side of the coin it can make some people uneasy.
I'm a real "Car Guy" and I lost my leg doing something car guys do and that was getting into Drag Boat Racing at a young age. I could have collected stamps, nothing wrong with that but I'm hooked on raw torque and horsepower like you get from a built big block Chevy engine. One day, an accident happened and my own boat caught my right leg.
The important thing however, no matter what the tragedy, we all have to learn our lessons and move forward with a positive, can-do attitude.
