Holy crap, he wasn’t kidding.
FOX’s Jay Glazer told us earlier today that he planned to throw a potato at the video board hovering only 90 feet above the floor of Cowboys Stadium.
Actually, he threw four of them. And he missed, every time.
Two of the potatoes exploded upon hitting the turf. The other pair survived.
As a result, Glazer has concluded (via Twitter) that “the damn thing is fine where it is.”
A commenter opined earlier today that Glazer likely couldn’t throw a potato 90 feet horizontally, making a 90-foot vertical toss even more unlikely.
Actually, the board hangs 90 feet from the turf. To get the actual distance of the throw, we’ve got to factor in the height of the person throwing the potato.
So, in Glazer’s case, it’s like an 86-foot throw.
