Superbowl Tug-of-War


Some of you may be excited about the big game on Sunday, Feb.4, 2007, but it's still two days away.

In the mean time we take you to South Florida where a game of tug of war meant a lot more than bragging rights.

The official airline of the Superbowl geared up for the big game by holding an event called the Pro Tow. The Southwest Airlines Pro Tow pit NFL players against heroes from the Broward County Sheriff's Office and aircraft rescue firefighters. The point was to see how far the groups could get by pulling a plane with their own strength.

The NFL team came out on top by pulling a Boeing 737 plane 50 yards in just 35 seconds. The team was awarded $2,500 for their charity, the Player Assistance Trust Fund.
