LSU grounds crew member trips three times, gets swallowed up by tarp

Laying tarp is a much harder job than people might think.


It is not always fun to work for a sports team, and a groundskeeper for Louisiana State University showed why ahead of a rain delay at a recent Tigers game.

As the video shows, this poor man had an absolutely miserable time helping his colleagues cover the field before a storm.

Those counting at home can see he went down not once, not twice, but three times and nearly fell a fourth time before he finally found the grass. But perhaps the man hasn’t mastered the art of the tarp just yet because of inexperience. That’s right. According to the LSU Tarp Crew Twitter (because everyone is on Twitter these days), it was the man’s first day on the job.

That’s a rough welcome.
