Britain’s Shin-Kicking Championships seems like a fun time (Video)

“I kind of get quite annoyed when people think shin-kicking is literally two guys just facing each other and kicking each other as hard as possible in the shins.”

Really? Who would think that? I’ve always assumed that Britain’s Shin-Kicking Championships involved a Decathlon followed by a karaoke battle to the death with the local magistrate. Would have never guessed that people actually believed that it was just two dudes going Ike Turner on each other’s shins until one falls down. My word.

Call me when the Groin-Kicking Championship begins. That’ll separate the men from the boys.

And yet another example of why I’m too much of a puss to ever play rugby

Even during times of celebration, there will be blood.

Scotland defeating powerhouse Austrailia 9-6 on Monday night prompted the totally non-erotic postgame man melee which in turn resulted in flying headbutts and blood. Only in Rugby. And possibly Street Fighter II. Give the bloodied athletes credit though for having enough adrenaline in their system to smile through their concussion. Somebody better have waken them up every hour on the hour last night.

Celebration also asks the important question to why the hell ‘Aww, Crimey!” isn’t a killer saying in the American language. Because there is no excuse to why it isn’t.
