For some reason kids and tweens are all into that Miley Cyrus girl aka Hannah Montana. I feel old just writing about her. In my day we were all idolozing New Kids on the Block and now those men are this close to enterting a rest home. Depressing.
SO….some dude named Jody Powell from Florida entered a contest held by WFLZ-FM. The prize was tickets to Miley's concert in Tampa. Miley's tour is said to be the hottest tick of the year.
35-year-old Jody held on to a 12-foot "Hannah Montana" statue for 6 days beating out 19 others to win 4 tickets to the show, backstage passes and a $5,000 prize. He did it for his 7-year-old daughter.
The contestants were given 12-minute breaks every 3 hours.
Before winning Jody made a deal with the runner-up. He gets the tickets, she gets the backstage passes and they split the $5,000 prize.
Now that's dedication! My daddy wouldn't let go of his poker chips for less than a minute let alone hold on to something for more than 5 minutes. I know, sob story.
