Poll- @TheSteveDuJour Has Set The Over/Under On Days Til The First Story About A Person Getting Lost In A Corn Maze Makes Headlines At 7 Days

Just as sure as there’s a New Year’s Eve, A Memorial Day and Labor Day, every year we get treated to the annual story about a person or group of persons who get lost in a corn maze and police or fire departments have to be called in to save these people.

I asked my boy Steve Saleeba at WBZ where he would peg the over/under for days until this annual story gets filed and he replied-

 

If you don’t follow Steve on Twitter you really ought to, he’s one of my most worthy follows. @TheSteveDuJour

So how bout you? You taking the over or under 7 days til we get the first Northeast report about someone getting lost in a corn maze and some type of professional help being brought in to rescue them?

Deadline 8:24AM Friday September 27th

Bill O’Connor Writes-

Hi Joe,

Here’s a photo of two near winners of the Darwin Award from yesterday’s storm.  This was a few minutes before high tide at Good Harbor Beach.  Obviously, their need for attention far outweighed the value of the life of the person who was going to pull them out of the water if the undertow had taken them. Just a reminder to all the parents out there – make sure you teach your kids that it’s never a good idea to enter the surf in a storm surging tide during a Hurricane! The ocean is a powerful force and you should never taunt it like this.

Thanks,

I was shocked that there were people bodysurfing and could not believe the stupidity.
