    Teen Gets Frostbite After Barefoot Run

    BUFFALO, Minn. - A teenager who wanted to continue the family tradition of running around the garden barefoot during halftime of the Super Bowl game has learned a painful lesson.

    It was 17 below zero at halftime Sunday in this city about 30 miles northwest of Minneapolis, and D.J. Brown's dad said it was too cold to continue the tradition. But the 18-year-old senior at Buffalo High School ran outside in his T-shirt and jeans, threw off his socks and shoes, and ran around the block.

    Brown said he was outside only five minutes, but his feet started swelling and blistering when he got back inside. The pain was excruciating.

    "I consider myself having a high pain threshold, and this was just so 10 out of 10," he said. "I was, like, chewing on a towel."


    He was treated for second-degree frostbite on both feet at the burn center at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis and was on crutches and pain medication Monday. His burn specialist said he should be fine, but it'll take a few weeks.

    "Cold weather is just as dangerous as pouring scalding water on your feet," said Dr. Leslie Smith.

    Brown, who said he's a straight-A student, chalked up his actions to "teenage arrogance."

    Brown hopes others will learn from his mistake. "I wouldn't want anyone else to go through this," he said.

    It didn't say he wasn't born in Wisconsin-just that he lives in MN now....probably a transplant.
