As we get older we all do stupid things.  It's a given.  In fact, for some of us, we can't even blame old age.  Some of the things I've done in the past I just have to chalk up to plain ol' cranial-rectal inversion. Like the time I got out of a car and forgot to put it in park... only by the grace of God did chaos not ensue.  Or after making a stop with the Bossier City Police, I DO put the car in park, but try to get out before unbuckling my seat belt... yeah... did that... But unfortunately for our Sports Director Tim Fletcher, chaos DID ensue.  If you haven't seen the video yet... here 'tis!

I spoke with Tim about how this all came about... and the story is even better...

We were going to get snow-cones and I was getting into the truck, but it was really hot.  So I started the truck and opened the door to blow the hot air out of the cab... as I was sitting behind the wheel, I turned the knob to put the truck in reverse. As I was waiting for it to cool off, a bug started climbing up by stomach... I went to swat it off of me, and it started crawling faster up my chest... I freaked out, swatting at the bug and fell out of the truck that was still in reverse... and... well....

As Tim's producer Rogers Hampton said...  "It always starts with a snow-cone!"

Fortunately, Tim is ok and was at work Thursday morning... limping.... but at work.  Oh yeah... he never got his snow-cone...
