High School Student Claims Piano in Biscayne Bay and Provides Video
|Yeager's story turned out to be about as real as this photo.|
The teenager told Channel 10 News: "I liked the idea of an anonymous piano out there, no explanation to it. But another person came out with the idea that they did it. That's just not right. But what people would do for publicity, who knows."
Yeager's claims managed to catch the attention of CNN's American Morning, at least according to a transcript of what aired at 2 a.m. And this is not the first time the angry hippie, as some of you are calling him, has appeared in the New Times. In 1993, music writer Greg Baker wrote a glowing review of Yeager's song "Little Puggy." In 1997, Broward New Times ran a story about his film, Jimmy's Story, and described it as Wayne's World meets Spinal Tap.
Still, it seem most Miamians preferred it when the piano was unexplained. Angry hippies decrying Miami as shallow or teenagers hoping to get a leg up in their college applications drain a little magic out of the spectacle. Just like in any good marriage, it's good to keep a little mystery. So let's all turn our attention to a South Florida legend that will always go unclaimed: the Skunk Ape.
