You are about to witness one crazy insane (or insane crazy) man. That man you see under the headline? He is Tor Eckhoff and his blood is made of fire. This guy boozes it up while skating and rolling around a frozen lake somewhere in Norway…yeah i said rolling around on the ice. Did I mention that he rolls around in his underwear as well? How about that he dives in the frozen lake in just his underwear?
Certifiably insane. Fire blood. I love it. Steve-O, you’d better step up your game, son.
Just keep watching til he starts skating around half naked with a chainsaw. The crazy is strong with Tor…and it is good.
Well, I guess you will save a lot of cash by taking up this version of the already extreme sport of rock climbing. Nude rock climbing is supposedly the latest craze here in the states, but I’ll be damned if I’ve heard about it before reading this article (might be NSFW since there are some arty nude shots) from the Daily Mail.
People who do this sort of climbing swear that it is the “true essence of the climbing spirit,” whatever that means. One climber, Dean Feldman, was so inspired that he took this photo and a whole bunch of others and made a calendar called “Stone Nudes” (also might be NSFW for some arty nude shots) which you can pick up on his site there, showing that this new extreme sport is already primed for capitalism to exploit it to its fullest. I mean, who doesn’t love naked women on rocks right? I know I just bought two, one for the wall and the other for…personal use. Yea, that’s right.
Sure you can save a lot of cash on climbing equipment but has got to be offset in a big way with the medical bills. I mean no ropes or hooks or knee pads or anything to prevent the bumps and bruises and um…FALLING DOWN to the ground to your death? Yea, sounds like an awesome way to spend the afternoon.

May 10th 2008…a day that will live in infamy as National Xtreme Baseball starts its inagural season. You may remember way back when when we first caught a glimpse of the spectacle that is National Xtreme Baseball, well now it has finally come into it’s own as an official league. Not that it takes a lot to become an official league. Anyway, the first real game (not the exhibition games they’ve been playing for the past year) was Saturday, May 10th, 2008 and it pit the Daytona Stingrays against the Miami Pythons, which are Xtreme team names for sure. Daytona won the contest 12-4 and I’m sure you really cared about that.
We’re gonna try to track down actual video of the game, but if you want, you can see some photos of the game’s events with a snappy soundtrack below. We’re expecting big things for this league (not really) but it sure is nice to reminisce about when sports blogging weird shit was easy because stuff just leaped out at you. Nowadays a man’s gotta actually work for his blogging stories…dammit.
The wonderful thing about Extreme Sports is that you are only limited by your imagination…and these guys are either some of the most creative people you’ve ever met or the dumbest. Its Underwater Ice Hockey. Don’t confuse this with the pansy-ass game played in on the bottom of a pool while hitting a puck with a tiny stick, this is a game of hockey played not on top of a frozen body of water, no that would be too easy, it is played on the ice UNDER the frozen body of water.
In February 2007, Austria, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia even played for the 2007 Underwater Ice Hockey Championship, with Finland beating Austria 7 to 4 for the title of World Champion. Here’s a video (not in English) of how its set up and how people actually play this insane “sport”.
