One popsicle bridge was not #winning | Schools
While covering Tuesday's bridge contest at Gonzaga Prep, we couldn't help but notice one bridge that had high hopes for "winning". Students decked out the popsicle bridge with the smiling face of Charlie Sheen.
The Sheen Bridge didn't get that far. It's not that it was crushed under the forced weight, it just tipped over. Charlie Sheen's smile turned upside down.
One of the students disclosed an engineering flaw in their design. This isn't the first time their bridge has tipped. Ryan Pennell, junior student, says the same thing happened last year.
"I'm kind of disappointed. It just flipped. It didn't really break. Our bridge last year flipped too," Pennell said.
The other engineer, Benjamin Wright, junior student, vocalized his woes during the loss, but kept his chin up: "Charlie Sheen would probably declare it an epic win and cure cancer by blinking his eye."
Our kingdom for slow motion video. Instead here's the shot by shot demise of the Sheen Bridge.
