I object to the fact that the wireless is wall-to-wall with sporting features on Saturday and Sunday afternoon in Ireland. The only way to escape is to watch Masterchef on youtube or read a book . . . or go outside and mow the lawn. The sports covered on the radio are wholly predictable and there is a lot missing to hear
the description of a ball tooling up and down a pitch rather than actually seeing it. So now we can bring you some alternative sports of which you should be aware. Mostly they involve very simple equipment - a plastic stool, a wheelbarrow, a cheese - and are agreeably free of rules and regulation . . . and such modern nonsense as health&safety and the never-ending imposition of insurance.
. What it says on the tin. You roll a big cheese down a steep hill and plunge after it. First to the bottom wins the cheese. Vagabrothers 8'30" report
. Minimalist clip for 2015
Pakour with wheelbarrow
. The latest thing to come out of Germany
. You may leave your skateboard at home.
. A long tradition in Finland as "vaimo kuljettavat
" where you carry your wife round an obstacle course. Most successful couples start, and finnish, with the woman upside down in the "Estonian" style. Vagabrothers 7'30" report
. or with the Telegraph: Shorter, stronger, wetter
daft aus Deutschland form of parkour
. . . at least you can sit down when you've finished your antics in the streets.
. You stand on a section of log in sneakers and chop though the wood
without trimming your toe-nails.
All good fun and no more dangerous than rugger.
