One of my biggest fears in life is to be struck by inopportune hiccups. That’s because I have to speak on a microphone regularly for the sake of announcing games. Earlier this year I accidentally swallowed a piece of Chex Mix while trying to read a game script and sounded like I was dying. It was not good.

So Ethan, the 7-year-old in the video below, got to live out my nightmare. I am upset, however, that he is far more confident than I. Despite the fact that he gets hiccups during the Australian national anthem he pushes right through like a boss. Ethan is a hero.
