This morning, ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted a poll announcing he was going to be taking the Lambeau Leap tonight ahead of the Packers-Lions on Monday Night Football.
Attempting the Lambeau Leap on Monday Night Countdown tonight. What will be the end result?

As of now, that’s 84% of respondents who thought Schefter wouldn’t make it, with a healthy portion also thinking it would go badly enough that medical attention would be required. True to his word (and despite the obvious lack of public belief in his jumping abilities), Schefter closed Monday Night Countdown by taking a lengthy running start and throwing himself up the wall.
So, there we have it. Schefter did indeed make it over the wall via fan assist, but hey, communion between fans and Lambeau Leaper is kind of the whole point, right? And, as Adam notes, he came through unscathed:
