After the New England Patriots won their 6th Super Bowl, there was a lull in sports excitement. Sure, it's great to follow the Celtics and the Bruins, but where was that pure adrenaline sports rush? It was in Krasnoyarsk Russia this weekend at the Russian Slapping Championship. This sport is so pure. You stand facing your opponent across a table and slap each other in the face as hard as you can three times. The champion gets the glory and a prize of 30,000 rubles, hey that's $470!!!
Much like Tom Brady in football, there is a slapping GOAT. The big guy with the beard who doesn't smile. Wouldn't it intimidate you to face him, if as you step up they have two guys stand behind you to catch you when you fall? This guy is a machine, he's knocking people silly! Spoiler alert, he wins, but doesn't having a bushy beard like that soften the blow?
