TWIRS: Combaton!

by

combaton.jpgCourtesy of Deadspin via Deuce of Davenport, our weekly look at random sports is Combaton!  Man, it seems so much more interesting with an exclamation point after the word.  We won’t mull over the details of the game since DoD did a good job of explaining.  Mainly, you try to keep the other team from passing a baton all the way down the field by kicking them.

We’ll be honest and blunt:  we dissaprove of this sport.  While literally kicking the shit out of the other team while they run down the field seems like a great idea, we maintain that the creators of this sport just missed out on a winner here.  How could they have made it better?  Easy, football bats.

That’s right, these guys should have let eveyone on the field have one of those damned batons and stiffened them up like With Leather readers when Scar-Jo is mentioned.  They could beat the holy Hell out of one another with them too.  Then the objective could be to kick a ball (possibly a football to make it come full circle?) into some sort of goal.  Now that, my friends, would be a sport that we may be interested in.

    Football bats are awesome. Maybe the concession stand at each game could sell soup sandwiches.

    I’m with Combaton Player above. People that sit around and trash others can’t cut the mustard.

    Maybe you guys could have lunch and then beat each other with batons!
