As the above video of Saturday's Oregon State Beavers football practice in Corvallis confirms, there is no one on Earth happier than someone coasting down a Slip-N-Slide.


“It’s just a change-up, a little curveball for everybody that gets them out of the box,” head coach Mike Riley tells reporters, via KDRV. “It relaxes everybody a bit, and they laugh. Things need to be fun. If it’s not fun for [the players] then we’re in the wrong deal.” Later, defensive end Dylan Wynn discusses proper S-n-S technique. "It's the burst and you want to put as little surface area as possible on the slip-n-slide," he says. "You've gotta activate those abs." The real takeaway is that an entrepreneur could print money if he or she were to figure out a way to safely set these things up in the middle of cities.
