But Can He File a FOIA Request While Hopping on the Sacred POGO Pogostick?

Here at POGO we’re into Extreme Sports, like working until the very last minute when you have to pee so bad that you run to the bathroom dodging obstacles and running over slow people.  We also like to take a 347 word document and edit it down to 250 words without losing its meaning.

So when we interview interns, we look for Extreme athletes.  (Most people don’t realize this, but we hired Nick Schwellenbach only due to his ability to maneuver a moped and his athleticism in diving into blowup pools; Michael Smallberg we got for his professional wrestling experience and his ability to grow a Stan Van Gundy mustache; and Jake Wiens was attractive to us for his city bike-piloting skills.)  So when POGO had a chance to snag Eric Orenstein as an intern we were all like, yeah he’s a big deal in the kayak world, but can he comma up?

Well recently EO placed second in the Great Falls Race held locally on the Potomac River.  The race is part of the Potomac Whitewater Festival, an annual event held to raise awareness about environmental issues in the Potomac Watershed.  (Incidentally, there is no truth to the rumor that they could only get two people to enter such a race.)  EO fits nicely into the POGO family.

Eric comes to POGO from Colorado College.
