Apparently, there's more to life than watchin' the game and havin' a bud. Whatever those old boozetastic commercials may have told us. Just ask your girlfriend/wife/Thai bride, her thoughts on the matter are probably frequent and vivid.

If you are one of these elusive creatures who give no effs about sports, no doubt you have your reasons. Traumatic memories of being snapped on the ass with a towel after gym class, perhaps? The time you got busted for 'accidentally' drilling a hole into the girls' locker room in third grade? These are strictly friend-of-a-friend anecdotes, you understand, but it's still the kind of BS that can put you off of sports for life.

But fear not, we have just the thing. The clip above will restore your faith in all running/kicking/throwing-based pursuits. Behold speed skating with Mario Kart item boxes and power-ups. Because solid editing and a crazy-ass idea is always a great combination.
