Back from Clark South Dakota Potato Day Event!!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 7:27 pm

Whoo. We just rolled into town (Minneapolis) from Clark, SD. We barely made the 11:15 A.M. mashed potato wrestling event in Dickinson Park this morning which was a blast. I blame my cell phone alarm not going off but then again it could have been the 30,000 beers we had the night before at Sportsman’s Bar and I just forgot to set it. Anyways, we got there on time–hangovers and all. There were six of us on the trip and we did our best passing cameras to each other to capture the action. Some samples will be up soon. I want to thank Dennis at the Hi Way Motel for letting us come back to the motel to shower after check out time. Thanks Man!! You saved us from a stinky 5 hour van ride home. Also, I’d like to thank Beth for arranging our appearance and talking us up on the radio in Watertown the other day. Shout outs also go out to Clark County Courier for there nice article that I’ll post Monday or so.  Everyone was real friendly and we really enjoyed meeting interesting characters like John at Sportsman’s Bar who apparently was the first real wrestling state champ out of Clark back in the day. Man, they grow them big there. He wrestled at one of the first mashed potato events ever and his commentary on the naked chick poster in the men’s bathroom is priceless. We also met a dude who flew into the pit area via chopper 2 years ago when ESPN covered the eveent. Awesome. Thanks to all the hot girls at the bar who told us to splash the kids around the pit (good call) and the fire dept. for hosing us off at the end. Jordan, we can’t wait to see your vid on Youtube. Oh yeah, I beat Rowdy Roddy Potato Head in a rematch of last year’s Barnesville event to hold onto my self proclaimed title and the Nisswa Ninja defeated The Afrodisiac on the undercard. Pics soon.
