The Sergel square nut

I thought we would take a small break from the old town for a few days. Going into town today I ran across this character at the Sergel Square. The square is just behind the sergel fountain which you can see in the background and see earlier pics of by clicking HERE
Anyway, this is a square where there are some very... well, special people = )

There is one guy who competes in long jump infront of people sitting in the stairs leading to the square, thinking he´s in the world championships. Another guy plays a harmonica and usually urinates at the same time.
This guy was new for me. And I have to say it, probably the most unique one I have ever encountered. With a floorballstick in his hand (floorball is a mixture of Ice hockey and landhockey) a stereo in his other hand, a beercan that he balanced on his head and a football he really seperated himself from the crowd.

What was even more bizarre was that he managed to juggle the football in quite fantastic way while holding on to everything and at the same time babble about topics that sounded really angry =)

interestingggg - I could bypass the urinating hamonica performer for sure! Do people give these "entertainers" money? I did not see any money collection container around. We have those street performers here where peeps pass by and give a dollar or two

No, we have "real" entertainers aswell. These guys are... well, just the village idiots.

So nobody gives them any money. And even though I think he´s pretty harmless most people are probably scared from going close.

Our mentalcare has really gone down the drains the past twenty years and there has been "incidents". So even if this guy looks really amusing you never know what he´s capable of.

If he's that good with a ball maybe Sven can convince him to replace Rooney for England!!! Love the shots of the old town. More people pics fro me soon.

Talented and a little scary too. All of the people you mentioned. But I guess that's what makes our world go round.

We see plenty of our own "talents" here at the public library in San Antonio.
