RE: Weird Sports Thread
MMA and soccer are probably the 2 best sports.
The rest are just derivatives are less pure forms of those 2

soccer represents organized warfare and mma represents mano y mano combat

RE: Weird Sports Thread
I find an odd enjoyment in reading/researching about Ultra-"Running" and then questioning and sometimes disproving their lofty claims.

There is a bit of fanatical zealotry with them, I guess that could be true of any group passionate about their enterprise, and I think the sport attracts some which use it as a therapy, again, maybe that could be said of other sporting activities too.....but the difference is that in other sports there is a transparency where with the Ultra-Nerds they are writing these books where it's more than liberal creativity in telling a story, they are making fictional claims and selling it as Non-Fiction.

Read a few of the Ultra-Books and you will read about the Running Monks of Japan who if they don't complete the run they commit seppuku....and of course the truth is much different....much of the distance the walk....and as opposed to what the books insinuate the monks do not run every day and will not run if there is weather danger, sickness, and so on. One video I have shared the Ultra-Nerds are telling about these monks and their "running" and in the video the monk uses the word WALKING

"The Way of the Runner" author was more authentic and still told a good story

Japan is the most running-obsessed country on earth. A 135-mile relay race, or "ekiden," is the country's biggest annual sporting event. Thousands of professional runners compete for corporate teams in some of the most competitive races in the world. The legendary "marathon monks" run a thousand marathons in a thousand days to reach spiritual enlightenment.Yet so much of Japan's running culture remains a mystery to the outside world.-----

I don't care what people say, I love watching slapping competitions. I never miss a contest. I don't know if it's considered weird.. It's definitely stupid for the competitors. But their stupidity is entertaining.. There are some slapping monsters in the sport as well.. Big knock outs.. I enjoy this guy's commentary as well.. The King of Slaps is a big Russian named Dumpling. He knocks people out cold with slaps.. This is the light heavyweight champ Wolverine

Is it really a slap if it hits you on the ear and neck?
