Happy New Year! In the first episode of 2009, we boldly attempt to name 5 sports in which the danger and risk are maximized, but the respect gained by participating in the sport is minimized. Warren's suggested example is the luge. Sorry, lugers, but he's got a point. We come up with several other candidates, most of which seem to involve combinations of two other things, e.g., skiing and jumping, punting and tackling, croquet while horse riding, skateboarding while sun tanning, and sword fighting while being without pants (hey, the danger has to be maximized, remember)? Let us know if we neglected to mention your own sport, or if you wish to sign our petition to renew television coverage of the lumberjack games (email us at [email protected]).
