322' 7 1/2"

It was an amazing jump and the height he got was just incredible. He looked 3x higher than the stands...must have been well over 100' in the air. As far as Chief Fan not giving him props because he did it with new technology, what's was he supposed to do? Attempt it on an old Triumph or Harley? Oh brother. This guy has a bigger sack than you and your whole town put together, Chief. He broke the world record. Just because he made it look easy goes more to his preparation and professionalism. I guess you would only compare him to Evel if he broke a few dozen bones, huh? The only thing that disappointed me was that the show started at 11 ET and the jump didn't happen until well after midnight. I had to keep interupting my New Year's Eve to go back and check when he was going to jump.

Could a morbidly obese goalie shut out an NHL team?

"and after the puck entered the crease everyone would just push you into the net and the line would be exsposed resulting in a goal." Depends on what crease it entered. If it was a crease in his knee, then they probably wouldn't be able to push it in the net. However, they might be able to push a crease in his arm fat in. It is conceivable that it would take several minutes to retrieve a puck from fate creases. The game could go on for hours.
