Methinks that they were probably in Africa at the time. I would assume that since i think 9 out the last 10 have been in some remote african jungle. Seriously, all this talk is making excited. Who is planning this trip?

They used to show paintball on ESPN, but i haven't seen it in YEARS...

I like how the US section of the World's Strongest Man competition seems to always be in State Line, NV. Talk about a sketchy 'town' if you can call it that.

Recently saw Woo Fuhwignoh on Banzai! on Comedy Central, which is a mesmerizing show. It was Woo, a rabbi and a priest, competing to see who could keep an exercise bike going above 20mph the longest, with the prize being the "soul" of a baby. You know, just like the movie Speed, but more dramatic.

Woo won, they hand him the baby, and he holds it while the announcer goes nuts in pidgin English. Good times.

This was, hands down, the best moment of Banzai's truncated run. I'd give the one-legged guy against the one-armed soccer goalie the second spot.

Does the short bus pick him up right from the office, or does he have to walk a little ways to get to the bus stop?

Edit: Either that, or that 8 year old has a damn good fake ID to get into Happy Hour.

I loved that show, the announcer and the graphics were primo. PRACE BETS NOW!!!!

The grannies playing chicken in their Rascals was pretty primo as well. But the best was the one-question girl (or whatever they called it) who asked Simon Cowell a single question and then stared at him, as a clock ran to see how long it would take him to walk away. That was brilliant.

Banzi was great, I liked the one where the guy kept shaking Adam Sandler's hand to see how long it took before he got freaked out and walked away.

And "PRACE BETS NOW!!" gets yelled on the tee at least once per round of golf with me.

As for other sports, I actually attended a timber show, complete with the chainsaw and log chopping competitions. There's no explaining how loud a chainsaw with a snowmobile engine is in person. Or how scary professional female lumberjacks are.

Banzai owned. I loved the Adam Sandler episode as well.

Lumberjack Sports also are super cool. Not quite as awesome as WSM, but I love the event where they chop the wedges in the wood and have to balance on the plank while they go up to the next one.

Yeah, the Lumberjack stuff is very entertaining. Good call on the WSM as well. Always like the dog competitions too. Basically all of that stuff can be extremely entertainment.

I can even watch televised billiards sometimes, provided the right women are playing.

Which leads me to the asian persuasion thread.

Thank you Brian, this will be addressed post-haste.

Didn't know where this really applies.

Harsh punishments. I like it. I like it a lot. I also like the fact that Montgomery will be 32 once he gets back from his ban, which makes me happy. Happy like Dusty the Rodeo Clown. Sorry, that's from NHL 2003.

Looks like FTT knows what he's doing after all (no shock there). Excuse the long quote, but this is from a far-too-long "Year in Sex and Sports" piece on Page 2:

Are you happy to see me or is that your curling broom?
Curling's a restrained sport, one of careful preparation, precision, and execution. Even the ice upon which it's played must be swept often with brooms by a rotating team of carefully selected specialists. But curlers have to let loose sometimes, and they also want some fannies in the seats during the 2006 Turin Olympics.

What to do? Spanish photographer and curler Anna Arce knows: Publish a nude calendar. Claudia Toth, the captain of the Austrian team, graces its cover, while representatives of the Danish, Italian, British, Polish and German teams are featured inside.

"I think it's going to change the image of the sport, which is not so nice," Arce tells the Canadian Press news service. "I've been playing for eight years and there are so many beautiful girls playing and nobody knows it."

Six-time Canadian champ Colleen Jones couldn't agree more. "One thing we noticed being over in Europe, the curlers are stunning," she tells the Canwest News Service. "You're looking at them, and you're going: 'Oh, my God.' "

Indeed, we are.

By mid-December, Sweep! magazine reports that only a few tickets are available for Olympic curling events.
