Loser Alert: Area Man Begins Camping Monday for Black Friday Deals


Say what you will about Isaac Bowser. The kid from Rolla has his goals.

Since last night -- Monday -- Bowser has been camped out outside a Best Buy store in Fairview Heights, Illinois. Why? Because he wants to be the first shopper through the doors the day after Thanksgiving -- a.k.a. Black Friday.

Says Bowser: "Last year I was almost first. This year I wanted to be first."
  And, below, one man responds to Bowser and his goal.
