Possibly the coolest videos you’ll see all day, here is the experimental new sport of Sport Pong. The field or pong board is actually projected onto the floor and players get to use their feet to move the pong paddles (1 per foot) around to hit the ball in an attempt to score on the opposing side’s wall. Yes, its like Air Hockey for the next generation and Pong 2010 all in one. Pretty damn neat though.

This guy goes by the name of the Unigeezer and he is a 50+ year old mountain/off road unicycler. He does things on one wheel that most people wouldnt try to do with two. Dont get him confused with the Uniballer or the Unibomber though…they are totally different people. Well, we know for certain about the Unibomber thing, the Uniballer thing i guess is up in the air. Those seats cant be good for the jewels.
Polo itself is a pretty fun game…if you have a ton of money and a freaking animal to ride on. If you dont, well it pretty much sucks. Luckily, people have changed that with advent of Bicycle Polo. Here’s the rules: You know that game polo? Well, its played on bikes now. THERE! Done! If you’re in Washington DC, where I am, you should check out the DC Bike Polo site for info on games, in NYC check it out here and if you’re elsewhere…we’ll do a google search and find it for yourselves. All of us writers for the Deuce live in those cities.
Want to see a more fleshed out explaination of this? Watch on, the New York Times did a story on it a year ago. Yea, a year ago. That is how “hip” and “with it” we are with the kids these days.

This guy prefers to rock climb in his house. No, he doesn’t have any machines or a climbing wall, he’s just climbing the walls inside his house…oh and ceilings too. He refers to it as “home bouldering”. Seems like that is missing something. Oh right. It should be X-TREME Home Bouldering. Yes. Much better.
What do you get when you pit two competitors against each other in a game of pool, then take those same two people and have them play poker, then have those two kick each other’s asses in a mixed martial arts fight? Apparently it might be a reality tv show. Well, at least the creator/contestent Blair Thein thinks it will be.
“The Interest in the uniqueness and excitement that surrounds this project, along with recent developments lead me to believe that 2009 is the year that “Pool, Poker and Pain” will Shine!”
Well…I guess putting them all together is unique. I guess? I mean, having a reality show about Ice Dancing, Football and Competitive Eating is pretty unique as well. I dunno, I am either missing the joke or I am the only one getting it, I’m not sure. I saw the video below and thought it was a pretty funny mockumentary, sort of like Spinal Tap or A Mighty Wind or something. Watch the video and see for yourself.
