Yale Tight End Beau Palin Loves to Wear Old Glory: VIDEO


The Yale Daily News points out this amusing video family self-portrait by one of its football players:

"Tight end Beau Palin '14 stands at 6'3'' and weighs in at 240lbs. He worked in an Illinois mustard factory one summer and baled hay in Wisconsin during another one. He likes to wear the American flag. This is the story of him and his brothers at their home in Oconomowoc, WI."

Apparently all of his brothers enjoy wearing Old Glory in a similar fashion, and they are accomplished barefooters.


P.S. - he's not related to the Mama Grizzly.

  5. Absolutely right Paul. I used to barefoot in my younger days, but we used a rope. I did cheat a bit, unlike my cousin who would just lie on his back to start - I used a ski under my butt to get up. I never really like barefootin though - much preferred the slalom.

  6. I find it funny that the song in the background is from a Canadian written originally about the Canadian flag

  8. Whats the deal with "PALIN" on the leg of the wet suit. Is that a brand name? Or are the supporting Palin?
