News, but not the serious kind
Teargas tennis, lobbing and sobbing…
Blog Guy, I hate to complain, but you used to do a much better job of covering stupid sports around the world. Many of us come here to see athletic events that are too twisted and ignorant for other media to cover. Anything new?
As a matter of fact, yes. I’ve really been getting into teargas sports. You know, teargas soccer, teargas baseball and the fastest-growing, teargas tennis.
Really? What do you like about teargas tennis?
And as the photo above shows, it takes a steady hand to whack that canister back over the barb wire “net” before it explodes.
Thanks, Blog Guy! Now this is the sort of stupidity we’ve come to expect from your blog. And what would you say is your very favorite part of a teargas tennis game?
That’s easy. I love the part where the winners try to jump over the wire net to congratulate their opponent. Talk about your great moments in sports…
