Shocking new sport

I linked recently to Stephen Colbert’s report on the new sport of freestyle canoe dancing. It turns out that there is another exotic new sport that will appeal to the more ‘macho’ types (aka stupid young men) and that is Ultimate Taser Ball.

    Ultimate taser ball official rules. For your pleasure and edification.

    Defenders may only shocke the player possessing the ball, and must not shocke if the ball isn’t in clear possession of a player.

    Someone reading too much Physioprof?

    Anyway, my idea is to put professional sports players, commentators, owners, etc., into a 200’ x 85’ rectangular playing field, then I get to taze them with a long-range tazer from the stands. Well, not just me. Anyone annoyed by professional sports can play. May be franchised outside the US providing the country has an equally annoying professional sports industry with equally annoying professional athletes.
