Joey Delk probably dreamed of a different outcome on Monday.
Monday afternoon, a college football fan named Joey Delk, who was selected by Eckrich to compete in its “$1 Million Challenge” ahead of the national title game, was given the opportunity to become very rich simply by throwing the ball threw a hole from 25 yards out. Needless to say, he did not succeed.
Delk’s toss was aired live on ESPN. It’s hard to know what happened:
To be fair, Kirk Herbstreit, who was given a throw as well in an attempt to win $1 million for charity, did not get it done either. But his effort was far better.
At least he’ll be an internet star now.
