So as we all know each year at the combine Eisen runs the 40 and this year he finally managed to beat 6 seconds… Or so they say.
Typically at the same time of year people across the US send in vids of their own effort at the 40, some more impressive than others but all good banter. This year I gave thought to putting on my runners, suit and a serious face to record my own 40 but was a little slow off the mark. This got me to thinking however… What better way to kick off our fantasy draft day and upcoming season than a league 40???
What better way to show the level of interest over here than to have a bunch of fans in suits, ties and sneakers running the dash on video!!
The idea being that we send the riveting film to the Eisen show to celebrate the start of the new season and in doing so advertising our league and more importantly TFP all while kicking off our draft day with a little 40 chaos.
For those willing to take part we would need…
A relatively quiet road or car park to hold the speed laden event.
A steady hand videographer (we should get this in one take )
Two serious looking individuals to time the blur from start to finish.
Runners dressed in a suit like get-up with sneakers, a white shirt and cheap tie who are aware of the sprint starting position and hopefully capable of finishing the marathon sprint.
Many of us stay over in Red Hill for the night and so there would be plenty of places to change post run. If like me you don’t have a suit that is fit for the big event no problem, there are over 5 months to find a cheap shirt, stick on tie and suit like jacket from a host of charity shops out there. After all, the more authentic it looks the better the impact shall be.
At this point I’m interested to know if anybody is up for joining me? Or am I a little crazy?
