My Most Embarrassing Moment What is an embarrassing moment? I would have to say, it is when things go not as planned. My most embarrassing moment happened February 1983. I was a junior at W.P. Davidson High School. I was a member of the N.J.R.O.T.C. unit there. My unit was participating in the Senior Bowl halftime show. We were responsible for bringing out a balloon of Popeye. We were to march out on the field carrying Popeye. Popeye was to be laid down at the fifty yard line. We were to raise him up on cue. We were instructed to then march off the field with him. All of this was to be done in a fully packed stadium. We marched out on the field without incident. The wind was a little strong, but not bad. We laid Popeye down on cue. My best friend decided to curl his line on the ground next to his feet. On cue we began to raise Popeye. My friend’s foot got caught in the rope. My friend rose in the air with Popeye. I tried to unravel him from the rope. I finally got hit loose. Everyone in the stadium started to laugh. The game was televised on national television. We were also seen on local television. My family and friends all watched the game and, of course, the halftime show. I have never experienced anything like that. Now I look back, and I laugh.
