WATCH: Guy Chokes Big Time When Making Million Dollar Throw At National Championship



With the National Championship set to kick off tonight, ESPN was pulling out all of the stops in their pregame coverage. In a contest sponsored by Eckrich Meats, Joey Delk had himself a chance to win a million dollars on live television by making one throw. To get that massive payday, Delk had to throw a football through a small target 25 yards away. Needless to say, Delk was not up to the task.

Jesus Christ, was that Connor Cook in disguise? While that was most definitely a pathetic effort from Delk, I’m not going to be too hard on him. I’ll freely admit that I’d have a snowball’s chance in hell of making that pass. The level of difficulty on that throw is a 10 out of 10, as you’d need surgical precision to successfully thread that needle.

And that’s not even counting the nerves factor. I could barely handle the pressure cooker that was JV basketball, so I can’t even imagine how shaky I’d be with a million bucks on the line. My throwing hand would be shakier than Gene Wilder in Blazing Saddles.
