Dewey Corn Is A Bigger Badass Than You

Why? Because Corn will be attending his 400th straight Wolfpack football game tomorrow in Carter-Finley. Beat that, sucka!

From GoPack.com, via Red & White For Life:

The last time High Point's Dewey Corn missed an NC State football game, his young neighbor, Johnny Evans, kicked an 81-yard punt that helped the Wolfpack beat Penn State, 15-14, in Beaver Stadium.

That was on Nov. 8, 1975, and he hasn't missed a play since.

The 86-year-old Corn has witnessed 209 victories, 185 defeats and five ties during the 35-year streak. He's been to 18 bowl games, including six trips to Atlanta for the Peach Bowl and a lone trip to Tucson, Ariz., for the long-defunct Copper Bowl, where he met Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.

Saturday's NC State-Clemson matchup at Carter-Finley Stadium will be Corn's 400th consecutive Wolfpack football game, a remarkable streak that spans the careers of seven head coaches, 17 All-America players and a half dozen NC State chancellors.

Sir, if I may say so, that's the epitome of "badass." Well done.

  1. That's someone that needs to get a life... he's probably never been outside of NC, much less outside of the USA.

    I wonder how he's handled losing for so long? That would be an interesting interview.
