Screengrab: Twitter/Megan Connolly
It still baffles me that a person would choose to subject themselves to the Slingshot ride — a ride that literally shoots you into the air, so you can feel your throat in your butt. But hey, people enjoys thrills. But something tells me that Megan Connolly won’t be seeking this sort of thrill ever again.
Connolly, who is a Republic of Ireland soccer player who currently plays for the Florida State Seminoles, went to a fair over the weekend with her teammate Dallas Dorosy. While at the fair the pair hopped on the infamous Slingshot ride. And let’s just say that while Dorosy had the time of her life, Connolly’s reaction is the same reaction that victims give when they’re about to be murdered in those bad horror films.

Wow. Pretty sure Connolly died for a few seconds.
The reactions on Twitter were gold as well:
You could’ve powered the entire city in Monsters Inc

I literally had tears streaming down my face. I haven’t laughed this hard in awhile.

You are one of two people in life, the person laughing or the person screaming.
