Cleveland’s medical community takes its cornhole (somewhat) seriously. In preparation for the MedCityNews.com Medical Cornhole Tournament in Cleveland, interns Diana Jack and Tyler Taylor set out to interview players participating this season. This is one in a series of interviews.

Cornhole Sponsors STERIS Inc. should win the prize for most enthusiastic cornholers in the history of beanbag tossing.

Having already generously donated money to Thursday’s  2011 MedCityNews.com Medical Cornhole Tournament, STERIS and a group of eight or 10 players, including CIO Mario Shahidian and spokesman Stephen Norton, joined a video production crew in the making of the STERIS interview video.

On a day that felt like it was 3,000 degrees outside, this team of dedicated shuckers spent hours filming by far the most creative video in the Cornhole 2011 vault. But their dedication isn’t just to quality film production and comedy; STERIS is out to crush the 2011 competition.

Everyone at STERIS is hoping that an investment in an Olympian coach and a $13 million training facility, as well as some seriously official gear (cornhole koozies? What could be better than that??), will help the Mentor terror come out on top.

Can STERIS really “put their money where their hole is?” Check out the competition (and some adult beverages for the koozies) at Cleveland’s Gateway Plaza between Progressive Field and Quicken Loans Arena on this Thursday, Aug. 18 for the 2011 MedCityNews.com Medical Cornhole Tournament. The picnic begins at 4 p.m. and the games will start at 5 p.m. We’ll play rain or shine.

Anyone in the medical community is invited to participate. Registration is $25 for a team of two and includes the picnic buffet and T-shirts. You can register online now. But don’t worry if you haven’t yet mastered your beanbag-tossing skills; we still invite you to come watch and cheer on your favorite team. For $15 onlookers get food and a T-shirt, too.

This event is sponsored by The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, Downtown Cleveland Alliance, STERIS, RGI, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Ohio State Medical Association, Perspectus Architecture, Benesch, The Krill Co. Inc. and Sequentia.
