Meghan McCarty explains the backstory behind the toga-clad man who virtually stole the show away from Madonna during the Super Bowl halftime performance.
Andy Lewis, better known as Sketchy Andy, or Skandy, is a master at the sport of slacklining. It's along the lines of tightrope walking, but on a looser wire. The sport has been around for more than 30 years, but has recently been gaining in popularity. It's taking off on college campuses and there's even a U.S. Pro slacklining team.
Sketchy Andy's Super Bowl performance may have won over a whole new audience, but it was actually conservative for him, McCarty explains.
