If we could fit Mick Foley on Howler, we can fit Gary Brackett on The Voyage. :)

Superbowl, as in the year the Colts beat Da Bears the year before Eli beat the Patriots. I wish I has the money, I would love to to ride the Voyage with a player from my favorite Football Team (I was at the AFC Championship game when the Colts beat the Pats and I was on the field during the trophy presentation).

The Associated Press just picked up the story and it's running on the Chicago Tribune's website, so the bidding may get interesting.

Q: Do coaster enthusiasts dig football?

A. Probably not for the most part

While I'm sure Gary Brackett will love Voyage the highlight of his day won't be the same as Mick's: me tapping him on the shoulder and cutting in to dance with Mrs. Koch :)

First I was a football fan, then a coaster person. If I only had just gotten my stimulus check, I would have spent all of it on it. Instead I had to pay bills!

I have to ask. When was Mick Foley at HW and why did he ride the Howler? And am I correct that Mr. Foley is aka Cactus Jack and Mankind?

I've seen Mick at HW at an SRM event (01 maybe?), but I'd take a guess and say he'd been there before, and has probably been back. And yes, he is Mankind, Cactus Jack, and probably one or two other people...just never Gonch AFAIK. ;)

IIRC Mick rode Howler with the Make-a-Wish kids visiting with him.

Yes, Mick brought two Make A Wish children back in '02, then stayed for SRM.

The ride op at Howler was a huge fan and was absolutely terrified that Mick wouldn't fit. He gingerly pushed on the lapbar and it didn't click. Mick started laughing and assured him it was okay. We all held our breath until...click!

The "prom" we held for Mrs. Koch was priceless. Moosh was the bravest gent there, cutting in on Mick. :)

I don't see why not. The hobby is strongly biased towards men so I don't see why there wouldn't be plenty of football fans in the hobby. The number might be negatively impacted by how many of those male coaster obsessives are gay but it's not like there aren't plenty of gay football fans, either.

This is a great cause. And here's one football fantatic who would love to ride Voyage with one of the Super Bowl 41 champs. Course I'd rather see coach Dungy's reaction to the ride lol. Colts fans or not, you guys better check out that new stadium this year on your way to Holiday World. Wow.

spaceace, that playoff game was one of the most gut wrenching endings in NFL history. Glad you got to be there. GO BLUE!

For a brief moment I actually considered, as a joke, cutting in to dance with him, then turning and dancing with Mrs. Koch. But I wasn't sure how good a sense of humor he had (and I value my life, lol).

Mick was done with his indy run and in the WWF when I was working. Never met him as a wrestler.

I did however get him to autograph his first book to Gonchar for me. :)
