The Heights BW Will Climb for a "Story"

Posted By on Tue, Jul 6, 2010 at 2:51 PM

Tomorrow I'm going on a date with Miss Idaho 2010.

Of course she doesn't know it yet. In fact, if questioned she will likely claim that we've never met, which we never have.

Still, it's gonna happen around 3 p.m. Wednesday when she and I rappel 14 stories down the side of the Hampton Inn and Suites in Bodo smack into the middle of Capital and Front Streets—along with the Mayor of Garden City and the President and CEO of the Idaho Potato Commission—as part of Over the Edge.

I'm told the event will benefit the Special Olympics. How precisely it benefits the Special Olympics other than by potentially creating more Special Olympians is still slightly unclear. But when a reporter not only gets to engage in absurd stunts, but also gets a foxy rappelling partner like Kylie Kofoed out of the deal, then the dubious news value suddenly gets elevated to near-City-Council-meeting levels.

And sure, Miss Idaho and I have never met. But her Facebook profile says that as a boy, I'm supposed to text her first. Maybe if I do, she'll let me belay her. Or maybe that's more of a third date.
