Normally the ABC Seamless Siding Sunday Six is a way for me to show you some of the best and weirdest plays in sports from the last seven days or so, but this week I'm going a different direction.
We start the six in China with pandas on a slide not because they do anything amazing on the slide, but just because gall dang it they're freaking cute. I mean look at them...oh, to be a baby panda in China eating plants and hanging out on my new slide. Pandas have it all. Well, besides the fact they are one of the most endangered species on earth.
Moving on we head to Michigan for an event your grandmother wouldn't approve of the 39th annual Cherry pit spitting contest. Yah pretty gross I know but it didn't stop men women and children from seeing who can spit the farthest.
This year's winner haucked his pit 69 feet to take home the coveted championship.
Next up we head back to China for a scary moment involving a tight rope walker. I know, aren't all moments scary on a tight rope? Well, yes, but how about trying to walk backwards with a blind fold on 650 feet above the ground and then falling 130 feet after losing your balance because of the wind. Now that's scary. By the way he was fine.
We continue our trip around the world making a stop in Russia for 50 meter race where contestants were required to wear at least three and a half inch heels. Ladies, I can't speak from experience, but from what I can see it's not the running that is the hard part. It's the stopping. Either way I don't think we'll see this race in the Olympics anytime soon.
The last two "Plays" are kind of a toss-up, but to make our trip easier we go to Finland first for the annual wife carrying contest. Competitors revert back to their cave man roots carrying their women through the streets and even through a water obstacle. Hold your breath, honey, like they say only in Finland.
And finally we head to Pamplona for you guessed it: idiots running with large horned animals. The smartest guy in the city...that guy behind the bulls with the big stick.. The courageous or moronic, which ever way you want to look at it, ran through the streets. Some even tagged along with the bulls grabbing a horn for a ride.
