Slacker & Steve's Blog



Claim to Fame

Yi!!!

A car salesman from the Detroit-area is so good at carnival games he wins thousands and thousands of stuffed animals a year... and he donates them all. It started when he was nine years old and he'd help his father deliver linens to the state fair. After work he'd play carnival games. He was really good at throwing games: darts, quarters on plates, etc. He won a lot and started to develop crazy technique as time went on. He once won 200 animals in two hours.,He was winning up to 2,000 animals a year without even trying…so he started trying and began winning 5-6,000 a year.,He donated them all to charities, Special Olympics, Toys for Tots, schools, etc. He even puts one in every car he sells. He's gotten so good that carnivals limit how much he can play because he'll wipe them out of toys.
 
Steve’s claim to fame? It’s on the wall in the Wahpeton ND American Legion where he grew up! He still hold the record for the most strike outs in a game…16! Every time he goes back home, he stops in just to make sure…
 
Slacker is a guitar virtuoso. He used to play in a band that tour/opened for Dokken, Tesla, etc. He was asked to audition for the band Warrant! He got accepted…and then turned them down. He says it’s because he was young and the lead singer was old and Slacker felt they would be touring state fairs and the singer tried to guarantee they would still be doing stadiums! NO cherry pie for you!
 
Steve still wants to know if they took him to the strip in L.A. and dressed Slacker in drag.
 
They tried to get him all decked out, but did not succeed!
 
What’s your Claim to Fame?
 
I was Bantam League State Bowling champion when I was 10! My current band was voted 3rd on Denver 7’s A-List. Me and a partner were state champions in the LiveStrong golf tournament 2 years ago. Random? Nah, just well rounded…
