Who among us hasn’t dreamed of sliding down Bernie’s Slide at American Family Field? Los Angeles Dodgers on-field reporter David Vassegh sure has. With the Dodgers in town for a four-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers this week, Vassegh tweeted his dream on Tuesday:

And on Wednesday his dream came true. He slid down Bernie’s Slide! And he broke his wrist and fractured some ribs while doing it! WATCH!

Here’s the aftermath. “HOLY CRAP! HOLY CRAP! HOLY CRAP!” indeed.

According to Awful Announcing, Vassegh later explained that he suffered fractures in his right hand and wrist, and also suffered fractures in several ribs. “Skinny fat body can’t handle it,” Vassegh said, taking it in stride.

Following Wednesday’s game, Dodgers catcher Austin Barnes revealed that the team had dedicated their win over the Brewers (boo!) to Vassegh (yay!):

And yes, you too can slide down Bernie’s Slide—hopefully sans broken bones. The “Bernie’s Slide Experience” is available before select home games, and costs either $150 (weekday games) or $175 (weekend games) per person. Just brace yourself for that landing.
