Eric Zane, Human Slingshot! [VIDEO]

I’ve said it before.  I’m not a huge sports fan.  I was a really big fan when I was a kid, but as the years went on and I got older, I got less and less interested.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy going to sporting events and watching games on TV, but I just don’t get in to it nearly as much as I used to

Some of you may know that I am an extremely avid runner.  I eat, sleep, and dream running.  When I finished running at Ferris State University I really struggled, part of me was so excited about the new path I was forging in radio, and broadcast but the other part of me missed all the days of 6am runs, and drunken Saturday nights with my fellow team mates (Only after a good race of coarse ;p)
