Germanys Naked Sledding Competition

Ok, ok, I couldn’t resist.
The winter days are pretty gloomy and grey so why not lighten it up a bit? How ’bout a bunch of naked people going sledding?
From The Huffington Post:

“Next month, the German town of Braunlage will host the fifth annual Naked Sledding World Championship, and they’re actively looking for this year’s crop of clothes-free competitors.

To apply, you must be willing to strip down for a grueling, semi-naked race on a toboggan. You’ll be laying on your stomach and propelling forward with your hands (don’t worry– gloves are one of the few articles of clothing allowed) before a crowd of about 25,000 people. In the past, the top(less) male and female sledders each received about $1,000 in prize money.

Organizers of the last Naked Sled chose only 30 participants from a pool of roughly 5,000 applications. Apparently those who “look good naked” tend to get picked, and stipulations are a bit strict: historically, contestants were chosen only from Germany, Austria or Norway, and Brits are forming their first team this year.”

Looks cold enough to “freeze a witches tit” – and give the men “snowballs”…

    The Nations mentioned there don’t need the British in this.
    The only good that came out of Britain is:
    The Beatles
    and Jeff Lynne (ELO)

  • Did Jack Scott “Radicalize” The NBA’s Bill Walton?
    Did Jack Scott Radicalize NBA Star Bill Walton? Sadly, we have to note that Bill Walton (and Jack Scott) are no longer living. Walton was a hero for many where I grew up in Portland, Oregon. He was the star of an NBA championship, which I pretty much didn’t care about. Later, Walton was doing […]
  • Review: Gold Warriors – America’s Secret Recovery Of Yamashita’s Gold
    This book, “Gold Warriors”, by Sterling and Peggy Seagrave is really, really good. It can be expensive because it is out of print, but I bought it long ago and it has been waiting in my “to read” pile. Affordable copies can still be found, I ordered one for a friend and apparently it is […]

  • Review: “Mind Games – The Assassination Of John Lennon”
    “Mind Games” is a great “Who-Done-it”. Of course, I am old enough to have remembered the December 1980 killing of Lennon – as well as that of JFK, King, And RFK. In fact, there are multiple similarities between the assassination of Robert Kennedy and that of John Lennon. Author David Whelan has deeply studied the […]
