SIOC: What did your parents think?
Tillet-Sacks: I dont know if they believed me at first, and then they asked if this is what I was doing with my college education. They thought it was a joke, which it kinda was. After we did it, they thought it was awesome. It's kinda cool to hold a world record.
SIOC: Did it make you a celebrity overnight?
Tillet-Sacks: The school's so small that everyone's a celebrity in their own right. And it was pretty easy to tell who did it because everyone looked like hell for the next couple of days.
SIOC: How did you keep your spirits up throughout the 72 hours?
Tillet-Sacks: I wore blue tights so people were calling me Superman. I mostly wore them because it was cold and they kept me warm, but all I wore was blue tights with no shorts in the final game. A lot of people wore different costumes. One girl wore wings, another person was wearing a case of beer hat. We had nicknames. This one kid has red hair and a black mustache, so we called him Mario and then designated Super Mario hero characters for everyone.
SIOC: Would you consider this a life-changing exerience?
Tillet-Sacks: Of course, it's changed my life. I've played Frisbee for 72 hours straight. I think it kinda gives you a new craving for extremity. I wanna try something even more crazy now. Maybe I'll join that (MTV's Call to Greatness) show.
