The Olympic Fangelist's Dream Job

Features

A 2010 study by the US Olympic Committee (USOC) estimates there are approximately 131.2 million Olympic fans in the United States. The most engaged group — 36.5 million strong — is known as “fangelists;” they’re the ones who just can’t get enough of all-things-Olympic. George Bauernfeind (Indiana) says he’s one of them.

Every year, in Plymouth, Minnesota, Brother Mike Justak (Ball State) invests more than 500 hours in programming, assembling, and testing a six-house, sequenced, 60-minute Christmas light show. Just as every shimmer of light in the show is perfectly timed to the music played over FM radio, those 500 hours are coordinated to match Mike’s peak hours of performance on his Parkinson’s meds.
