The other night I was flipping through TV channels. I stumbled across something called X Games. I think that means Extreme.
I saw people riding snowmobiles. Sort of.
These machines weigh over 500 lbs. Just for the record that's heavy. Especially when you drive one up a steep ramp and do a backwards flip with it.
The idea of flying through the air with (on?) one of these is mind boggling. Talk about an adrenaline (testosterone?) rush. I found the whole business fascinating - as long as I was watching and not doing it.
It reminded me a bit of snowboarding. Another sport I have never done but always found fascinating.
Again, from a distance. If you are my age just watching something like this will cause you to feel pain the next morning.
For some reason I have always been fascinated by monster trucks. I have no idea why but they seem so .... extreme.
Wouldn't it be fun to drive to work in one of these?
Here in the Midwest tractor pulls are popular. They used to always involve just regular tractors that guys used on the farm and brought to town.
Of course today things have gotten a bit more ... extreme.
Or even more .... extremely ... extreme.
Now if I can just find my remote control - sometimes an extreme feat in and of itself - I can sit here and watch people doing extreme things in my extremely less than extreme life!
Thanks for stopping by.
