Backwards hat fails to swing arm wrestling match

Five seconds into his arm wrestling match, Jake Radziewicz knew it was going to be tough to win. "He was stronger than I was. I couldn't even maintain a good grip," said the retired plumber. But then he happened upon an idea. "I needed to switch my cap around — just like Stallone in 'Over The Top.'" So Radziewicz reached up with his free hand, turned his hat around and — suddenly — the match was over. "In the time it took me to flip my cap, he slammed my hand off the table. It was a pretty stupid move on my part. Maybe the trick is turning your cap before the match. Or maybe the trick is being strong."
