Goodell on Mt. Rainier climb: "I've never been pushed that hard"

NFL_goodell.jpgThe folks at KING-TV in Seattle sent a camera along with the party of mountaineers who reached the 14,411-foot summit of Mt. Rainier on Wednesday. 

The video is, to say the least, impressive.

You can watch it right here.

In a brief interview with Paul Silvi of KING, who also made the climb, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell explained the feat. 

“I’ve never been pushed that hard, both physically and emotionally, and probably mentally,” Goodell said.  “You have to overcome your fear and you have to overcome your doubts of whether you can do it.”   

Goodell’s climbing party included Seahawks coach Jim Mora and Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke.  The group raised nearly $400,000 for the local United Way.

“I enjoyed every step of it,” Mora said at the top, noting that the group was still “only halfway there.”

You know, we hadn’t thought about getting back down. 

Maybe they should just install a Super Fun Happy Slide.
