From the "Sports that shouldn't exist" file, we bring you extreme wheelbarrowing
And all this time I thought the only thing wheelbarrows were good for was hauling chicken feed to the barn and wheeling home drunk friends. Think of all the fun I could have been having instead with my wheelbarrow, like grinding cows and hurdling manure patches. The possibilities are limitless, until someone beats the shit out of me for doing this.
And in case you're wondering, this is a real sport, and it comes from England. It was shockingly begun by two bored guys at a construction site. What are the odds?! Perhaps the best quote comes from one of the inventors. "Who knows, one day kids might ask their parents for wheelbarrows for Christmas." You said it man, I can't wait to get mine.
And just in case you didn't get enough extreme wheelbarrowing from the first video, how about some synchronized extreme wheelbarrowing set to "Come on Eileen." It's like experiencing hell before you even get there.
