This is only tangently soccer-related but what the hell, it's a slow news day. Have you seen this new sport that Red Bull have come up with called Crashed Ice? It's like something you would come up with if you were bored with 4 of your bro's on a cold day in Wisconsin after each drinking a case of The Beast. I admire this "fuck it, why not?" attitude that has led to this ground-breaking addition to the sporting landscape.
Basically stick a bunch of guys on skates as they jump, slide, weave, and break-bones through an iced-over snowboardcross track. How fucking fun does that sound? More fun than sitting on the couch high as shit watching Chapelle Show reruns while your homeboys girlfriend (who you always thought was too fine for his wanna-be 2 Fast 2 Furious ass) feeds you a box full of Twinkies. What, too much?
I got hipped to this from the link in this CNBC article. I'm no financial wizard or anything but I would like to point out that when this guy says that Red Bull should have never renamed the team after they bought it because "everyone does that" I had to ask myself "really, who else?" Sure there are a few clubs in Europe named for a company that owns them but who else in America has done this? Someone please correct me if I am wrong.
