CLEAR CHANNEL Country WGAR/CLEVELAND’s “MANTEL In The Morning” show will host the 1st Annual SHORT FAT GUY SLAM DUNK CONTEST at QUICKEN LOANS ARENA TOMORROW night (5/15).
The finalists chosen to participate had to meet the qualifications of being under 6 feet tall and over 200 pounds. They will be showing off their dunking skills with a mini-basketball hoop lowered to under 8 feet tall. The winner will get season tickets to see the CLEVELAND GLADIATORS, the local ARENA FOOTBALL LEAGUE team.
Morning show host JIM MANTEL said: “Short fat guys unite. I’ve had the vision for this contest for years. There needs to be more sports for the out of shape and overweight!”
Celebrity judges for the event include former CLEVELAND INDIANS player/manager MIKE HARGROVE and CLEVELAND BROWNS punter DAVE ZASTUDIL. For more info, visit www.wgar.com.
