It's official ... I've seen it all

That's right .... it can't possibly get any crazier than this! Underwater hockey. That's right ... you heard me correctly, U-N-D-E-R-W-A-T-E-R H-O-C-K-E-Y. Apparently it's an actual sport!

Each team, outfitted with fins, snorkel, diving mask, gloves, polo caps, and hockey sticks, has 6 members ... no goalie. Yep, they play hockey on the bottom of the pool ... while holding their breaths.

No, no ... really. See? These Hockey Players Have To Hold Their Breath

And a quote from player that proves The Crazy:
"When you run out of air, you know it," said Anthony Hemingway, a junior on Roger Bacon's team. "You get the gagging feeling. But when you're close to the goal, you're like, 'Do I want to score a goal or breathe?' Most of the time I say, 'Score.'"
Uh ... yeah.

Folks, I couldn't come up with crazier stuff on my own if I tried!!

What is the world coming to today? Boys want to score rather than breath? Oh wait. I guess that's normal. ;) *snicker* ha ha ha - I kill me!
