Najčudniji sportski događaji na svijetu

Najčudniji sportski događaji na svijetu

Valjanje sira, regate u kartonskim kutijama s mlijekom i hrvanje s maslinovim uljem otkrivaju sportsku (ukusnu) drugu stranu

Postoji vrlo ljudski svrab koji svi moramo izgrebati. Dok vi skidate misli s oluka, pojasnit ćemo da mislimo na uzbuđenje konkurencije; potreba da doživite nalet adrenalina koji dolazi s pokušajem da zgnječite svoje konkurente. Postoje različiti načini da se zadovolji takmičarski duh, o čemu svjedoče, ako ništa drugo, nebrojeni sportski događaji u hrani koji se kreću od bizarnih do bizarnijih.

Ne treba mnogo da se izazove ta poznata žurba. Konkurencija ne mari bacate li nogometnu lopticu ili bundevu, zbog čega se i vole sportovi Punkin Chunkin ' i valjanje sira su stekli popularnost koja im se možda tek može poravnati pivski pong (koji ima Svjetsku seriju, FYI). I dok dio uzbuđenja nadmetanja ipak dolazi od obožavatelja, posebno ako navijaju za vas, a ne protiv vas, ima se nešto reći za okupljanje s manjom grupom ljudi kao opsjednutih sa jelom koprive takav kakav si.

Možda neće imati isto vrijeme emitiranja kao, recimo, fudbal ili košarka, ali neki od ovih sportskih događaja u hrani, npr. hrvanje maslinovim uljem, stekli su ime širom svijeta i čak su iznjedrili imitacijske verzije koje se sviraju tokom festivala i zabava.

Samo zato što niste mogli postati mlađi sveučilišni tim kao stariji ne znači da imate manje takmičarskog duha od momka koji još uvijek proživljava svoje dane slave u srednjoj školi.
