Video: Delivering a football to a game via parachute

The University of Michigan had a game to play in five minutes, but they were all out of balls! What ever could they do? Well, a quick call on the 101st Airborne hotline (sitting on the university president's desk, of course) had Sergeant Adam Sniffen parachute a ball in to the roar of the crowd.

Okay, so that's not exactly how it went down, but it's fun to pretend, right? Sgt. Sniffen did para-drop a ball to the game, though, and even landed on an "X" marked on the field. You can see it below from start to finish without cuts (don't worry, it doesn't take long, and hearing the roar of the crowd as he gets closer to the stadium is awesome).

Hope you didn't have lunch yet, though! Apparently precision parachuting involves a lot of spinning.
