Say what you will about the now-infamous North Carolina parachuter who landed on the wrong field in Durham instead of his scheduled stop at the North Carolina-McNeese state game in Chapel Hill Saturday. At least he stuck the landing, nobody got hurt, and the several dozen diehards, ironic teenage hipsters and masochists at the Duke-James Madison game had a pleasant surprise (we hear the security guards loved it):
Better to land successfully on the wrong field than botch the landing altogether, as a certain Nippert Stadium jumper did before Cincinnati's scrimmage with Eastern Kentucky last Thursday, further proof that nobody cares about other people jumping out of airplanes until something goes terribly wrong:
If you're wondering, he got caught in the wire holding up the field goal netting. Fan Man thinks both of these amateurs are totally weak.
