Watch Max Talbot rappel down the side of a 20-story building

Nov 2, 2012, 3:25 PM EST

CSNPhilly.com’s Sarah Baicker explains:

Talbot, along with Marisa Magnatta from 93.3 WMMR, rappelled down One Penn Center – a 20-story building at 15th and Market streets in Center City – early Friday morning, as part of a radio stunt and fundraiser for nonprofit leadership-training group Outward Bound.

The 28-year-old forward is no stranger to adventure, having jumped out of a plane before. But Talbot admitted he was a little nervous (though mostly excited) before taking off down the side of the building as rush-hour traffic loomed below.

Taking the first step off the roof was “amazing,” Talbot said.

“The view was great. It’s nice to get emotions like that.”

At the very least, Talbot has a promising career in the window-washing business if the NHL never plays another game.
