A friend of mine participated in last year’s Polar Plunge, a yearly benefit for the Special Olympics that involves jumping into Percy Priest Lake in freezing weather to the delight of a cheering, laughing audience. The waters are nearly paralyzing, and apparently the trick is to have someone hand you a towel right away, wrap yourself up in it, and run to the nearest heated tent for some grilled cheese and soup courtesy of The Gold Rush, or fried chicken sandwiches courtesy of Chick-fil-A. I’m not suggesting that this sounds like a great idea to me — I love a good cause and everything, but we all have our limits — but it does sound like a lot of fun to watch. All proceeds go to the Special Olympics, and you get to make fun of your friends while they’re wearing goggles, capes and plungers on their heads. Seriously — I have pictures.
