The paper version of Unfair Park this week features the story of Ron White, the 2009 U.S.A. Memory Champion, who lives in Euless.
To help document his quest to prove that everyone -- even a college dropout -- can not only accomplish daunting mental feats but literally do anything they put their mind to, he kept a journal of his training regimen leading up to the national championship. White was kind enough to open the book for this slide show.
Below, check out Patrick Michels's terrific video of White working a crowd, practicing card memorization at home and training under water, as he gears up for November's world championships in Bahrain.
