The look on his face is priceless!

If I’m going to be in the paper, I’d at least like them to say I actually made it, even though I got in trouble and everything. I gotta pay fines and stuff. But I don’t want it to sound like I didn’t make it, because then my buddies are going to say 'ha, ha, you didn’t make it.' Because that was the whole thing, to show them I could do it.

I love how they've banned him from all waterfront city property too.

Morillo's stunt launched a joint search mission between the Canadian and U.S. coast guards when his neighbor called the police after losing sight of him in the water.

Wait, some people in this thread are actually impressed over someone drinking 8 beers (probably crappy moderate ABV adjunct lagers)? You need to set your standards a lot higher.

I think people are more impressed that a 47 year old guy swam across the Detroit river...

Haha I'd tend to agree, but I wouldn't want to swim that long of a distance sober or 8 beers deep

Yup.

Morillo, who calls himself a "strong swimmer," had made it across the river and was on his way back when the U.S. Coast Guard found him floating on the Canadian side at around 1 AM, two hours after he'd initially entered the water.
