In "Florida Man" news...

The First Ever Florida Man Games

St. Augustine, FL held the first "Florida Man Games," filled with competitions for eating, drinking, brawling, gunfire, reptile wrangling and more. The term "Florida Man" is an Internet meme first popularized in 2013, referring to an alleged prevalence of people performing irrational or maniacal actions in the U.S. state of Florida. Competitions included:

  • Eat the Butt Challenge
  • Mullet Contest
  • Gator Shows
  • Weaponized Pool Noodle Mud Duel
  • Evading Arrest Obstacle Course
  • Category 5 Cash Grab
  •  A Catalytic Converter, 2 Bikes, and a Handful of Copper Pipes: Race Against Time
  • Florida Sumo
  • Firefighters Vs Police Brawl of the Badges
  • Florida Ma'am Pinup Girls Contest


The 2024 Florida Man Games took place at Francis Field in St. Augustine on Saturday, February 24, 2024, from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Guest judges for this year's events were former American Gladiators, Dan "Nitro" Clark and Lori "Ice" Fetrick. This one-of-a-kind event invited spectators to celebrate Florida's unique culture and humor with various themed activities as they watched teams compete in a wild series of challenges inspired by the infamous "Florida Man" headlines.

If There Were "New Yorker Games," What Would it Look Like?

That got me wondering: If we had a "New Yorker Games," what would it look like? So naturally, I turned to you for your thoughts! Christina on Facebook responded "Wait, this isn't a game?" No Christna, unfortunately living in New York is not a game. This may still be a simulation, perhaps, but as of now, it's supposedly real life. Marty on Facebook wrote, "Was it sponsored by Viagra?" You would think, but no Viagra, but there were some sizable sponsors, including Ripley's, Ford, Lincoln, Canan Law Attorneys, Atlantic Marine, Bozard, Master Craft, Curaleaf, Amp Gym, Sunshine Cruising Yachts, and Powersports St. Augustine.

If there is any person who would be good to chair this event, it would be Z MaryAnn Tozzi. She had some amazing list off events! Honestly, it sounds like she's done this before!
