The Ill epidemic reached new heights yesterday. Literally. Team Giant Flying Llama won the event with their flugtag- a massive red helmet with "Ill" embroidered on the front.
Are you kidding me?
It's bad enough we have to put up with Ill shirts and window stickers, now it has to invade our drunken flying craft events? Outrage.
The Phlyin Phanatics, who were banned from flying their giant Phanatic into the river by MLB, flew their modified flugtag the furthest- 42 feet. Yet somehow, even with all the positive publicity, they lost to a giant "Ill" helmet. The Phanatics changed their name to the "Phlyin Censored", wore black t-shirts, and cut off the Phanatics' head in a hilarious effort to avoid the wrath of Major League Baseball and it's weeny lawyers.
Awesome video from reader Tom Salerno after the jump.
There were three criteria for winning: distance, creativity, and showmanship. WMMR's Preston and Steve and Jimmy Rollins judged the event, awarding victory to Giant Flying Llama. At least "Ill" got its deserved fate- a crash landing into the Delaware.
