Peter Drakos is a 64-year-old car salesman from Detroit by day. By night (or probably just during a different part of the day, actually) he’s also THE BEST FUCKING CARNIVAL GAME PLAYER IN THE WORLD.
Yes, that’s a thing. And this motherfucker IS it. But not only can he lay claim to being the Michael Jordan of getting rings around glass bottles, dude qualifies as a bona-fide real life superhero.
Drakos has mastered the fine art of Carnival Games like Whac-A-Mole, Ski Ball, and Ring Toss. He uses his knowledge of geometry, physics, and even engineering to perfect his game and amass as many winnings as possible. It’s kinda like “21″, only Drakos isn’t a college student and there’s no Kevin Spacey around to be all creepy. And Drakos wins a toy almost every time he plays. In fact, he wins so much that amusement parks like Cedar Point had to place limitations on the number of toys a person can win. And Peter Drakos is goddamn proud of that fact. In as little as twenty minutes, the senior citizen can rake up more than a dozen Rasta Bananas.
And those things are the fucking coolest.
But it’s what he does with his talents that qualifies him for superhero status – he donates all of his winnings to children in need. So far, he has given a quarter of a million stuffed animals to over fifty charities! And, he makes sure to wash the toys before he donates them. That’s really nice. He’s a local hero who makes a lot of kids really happy.
Good for you, Peter Drakos. You deserve a medal for being rad.Tweet
