Thanks to Red Bull, which gives us such lovely things as energy drink addictions, an MLS team and handmade flying machine contests, it’s um… How do I describe this… I would say luge. Yes. It’s luge except you replace the batshit crazy lugers (is that even a word?) with batshit crazy hockey players. Take away the pucks and sticks, then invite tens of thousands of crazy Canadians.
YouTube has the video and Way Offside has the snarky story, which describes a competition that you would expect to see at ESPN’s Winter X Games in a few years. The competitors, if we can call them that, skate as fast as they can down an ice track through Quebec City. Um. Great. People want to watch this… why?
Give it a few more tries before someone falls and gets their hand severed off by their opponents’ skate blade. The over/under on that is set at a month. I’m taking the under. _uacct = “UA-1868762-1”; urchinTracker();
