While the “Stay Dwight” neckties are popping up all over Orlando, Magic center Dwight Howard, is spending his time “planking”.
What is planking you may ask? (Because I seriously had to):
Well the always reliable Wikipedia says: The lying down game (also known as planking, or face downs) is an activity, popular in various parts of the world, consisting of lying face down in an unusual or incongruous location. The hands must touch the sides of the body, and having a photograph of the participant taken and posted on the Internet is an integral part of the game. Players compete to find the most unusual and original location in which to play. The location should also be as public as possible, and as many people as possible should be involved.
I guess it was invented by some Australian dudes back in ’97 and has become popular around the world in recent years. Crazy Aussies. Anyways, I guess “planking” is the new thing to do…must be cool too since Dwight’s planking in a McDonalds. Oh, and of course Chad OchoCinco had to do it too because he wouldn’t want anyone forgetting about him….god forbid he didn’t have the attention.
